Default Mr. Pasquini likes to pack light

This is how I like to have my kit if I'm just going from house to house for two or so days. I like the setup, but it's really tough to get as comfy for some reason... it's like I can't quite get the floor tom to be at the right spot so I can do hand over hand... Any ideas on why that might be?

This is in the new addition at my mother's house. There's all kinds of space in there because it's neither finished nor furnished. I'm going to miss it.

Your best bet would be to set up fully and then strip. Then you would probably get the right tom placement.

It must be loud as all get out to drrum in that room. Concrete and drywall!

The problem with that is I didn't want to take everything else out of my car. I found it much more convenient to take this for practice rather than hauling another cymbal stand and two more toms. + I didn't want to risk breaking the already beaten heads.

You sure it isn't the chair messing you up? Having a back limits your ability to move a bit

I just noticed your location... any chance you can recommend some apartments in the highpoint/greensboro area? I may be moving that way in the next couple weeks. If I do you're welcome to come try out my Taye Studio Maple set. =)

That's interesting, my mom just jumped into real-estate. I'll ask her about good places in GSO/HP.

P.S. It's not the chair, I sit on the corner of it, the back isn't even near me...

Try putting the tom further away... it might be a little too close for you..

I'm with crazyhorse. Maybe further away and toward the bass drum a bit. And the ride may be too close to your stool also. Ride and tom forward.

You could pack even lighter, and mount the stand with your ride in the bass drum mounting hardware. One less stand!

I like these kits, i play a few very small setups when gigging and it really forces you to be on your toes when it comes to creativity and improvisation.

yeah, i played that set up just with a crash and splash for a gig last tuesday. It was kinda fun, but originally i made it a 3 piece because for some reason my tom was rattling and couldnt find out why in time.. but still cool idea.

Maybe completely flattening and moving that tom away might help?

Why don't you try raising up the floor tom and putting it in front of the snare? I have that same tom, and you can manipulate the legs so that it tilts a little without losing stability, and that might make fills easier if it's in front of you.

Very compact and resourceful!

I would suggest mounting the cymbal on the bass drum. Then you would have no cymbal stand at all.

You could lose the floor tom, you can practice perfectly effectively with sn/kick/hats and ride.
You need to lose the dining chair though; it's not a good idea to have to set the drums up according to a fixed seating position. Get your seat height to a comfortable height (top of leg parallel to the floor) and then set up the drums from there. You may need to invest in a stool, but it's an aspect fundamental to technique.

well, I normally use a throne, but I left a key part of it at my other house... we all know stuff happens. Anyways, I moved it back and got the fills right. It's so much fun to work on such a small kit..
