Very nice. How do you find the two toms off to the left?

Default Re: My Gretsch / Sabian Setup

I'm glad you guys like it. The kit I originally bought came with 10", 12" and 14" toms. I added the 16" tom later. For a long time, I had the 10"and 12" in front, with the 14" and 16" in the "floor tom" positions. I found myself using primarily the 12"and 14" but wanting a "deeper" sound, so I rearranged to have the 14" and 16" in those positions. The 10" and 12" toms to the left don't get much use these days, but I can't bear to part with them, so there they are. I do still play them, and they are close enough that I can still do rapid tom runs using all four toms. The real key for me was to get the ride and hi-hat as close together as I could, since I play a lot of two-handed patterns between the two.
