Indeed I do, I'm a wierd mixed Bag; left-handed - right footed and I lead certain fills from the left but for the most part I actually lead them with my right. Think along the lines of Carter Beauford, Simon Phillips etc
It's definatley a nice little set-up to play, I'm a great believer in configuring the Drum-Set as per the Music I'm going to be playing so I don't tend to stick with just one soild set-up for everything.

Alternative Rock set-up:


Prog set-up:




What I tend to do during the first Rehersal with a new Band is set-up with everything I have and play through the Songs etc. During the Rehersal it becomes clear which pieces of the Kit I'm not using so I simply subtract them and then re-position everything, resulting in a nice clean set-up with everything I need to use and where I need it.

Hope that was informative! and kindest regards,

Kev
