Default More of a Jazz Setup

I have decided that my skills haven't advanced quick enough for me to fully use all of the drums I had purchased so I decided to go back to the original, almost, setup. I removed the two toms from the bass mounted holder and put them on a double rack, leaving only a holder for a single crash. So the bass is basically naked. I moved my 22 inch ride more to the right and this made it easier to place the 20 inch left ride and the two crashes. Let me know what you think...or not.

i find it much easier to play drums with more drums. so this doesn't really make any since to me. But, what ever you think would make you play better. go for it. What kinda taye is that?

Pro X in Blue Sparkle. I meant that I need to work on fills with fewer drums to help keep time and not over extend.

By the way I spent a week in New Market from May 19 - May 27. Was nice to see hills again. Very hot there though this week. Come to Florida to cool off.

Maybe the splash should go in the middle so the crash doesn't look like an umbrella over a picnic table. I have a different set-up pretty much every week. Some are strange, others are ok. It's fun to change once in a while. Just find one that's practical for you and anyone you play with. For example, it's no use having a big cymbal right in the way of where you should be looking at a bass player for example.

"Why does that man have a big cymbal right over his head, Dad? He can't even reach it there."

"Must be from Florida, son."

I like the set-up, Johnny. I've always preferred my ride cymbal in the right-hand position over the bass drum. It takes some different thinking in terms of fills - some people want the toms as linear as possible for descending fills - but it feels much more natural to me for ride patterns. I change toms around a lot, but the ride generally stays put.

Not being a fan of anything on the bass drum, I applaud your direction. Here's what I'm giggin' with right now. http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u...4-3441_IMG.jpg Love my ride cymbal low, yes.

What is that snare hiding in the back of those blue TAYES.? Well its a second hand Studio Maple snare all the way from North Carolina.
Just for you CrazyHorse.
