Nice ride you've got there! Try these ideas for your setup:

- Bring the ride cymbal closer to your rack tom; use a boom stand if necessary. You should also experiment with raising its position up a notch. Try setting up your ride cymbal at the height of the rack tom's batter head (or even above). If you set your ride cymbal too low, you are bound to hit the floor tom with your hand when you try to crash the ride on the edge.
- Bring the hi-hat closer to your snare drum. When looking from above, the outlines of the hi-hats and the snare drum should be touching, if not slightly overlapping.
- Setup the rest of the cymbals way, way lower and closer together.

Wavelength knows what he's talking about, there's always a way to make your setup more efficient for you and your playing.

The Alpha's are nice cymbals for the price, my church drummer plays them and I have to say I'm impressed with their quality. What crash do you have on your right side near your china?
