That video is stretched horizontally a fair bit. That kicker looks like a 16" deep one, which was still pretty unusual at the time.

Buddy did mix up gear a bit. Here is a clip of him with two rack toms.

I also remember him playing a whole solo with matched grip, despite his previous exclamations that matched grip players were hacks. I can't find the video on utube so perhaps my memory is jaxed up. LOL.

For the OP, go to about 2:10 and you will see Johnny play some quick figures with some big pencils. It is pretty obvious that Carson had put some time into playing...
