Default 2 up, over bass drum!

*PLEASE DELETE THIS IF THERE IS ALREADY ANOTHER THREAD LIKE IT*
i also made the wrong title, its meant to say "2up, left of bassdrum" if anyone could fix it, i thankyou in avance.
i have seen a few kits setup this way, so i thought a thread in which we could all show them would be great!

i guess ill start



specs are in my signature.

thats exactly how i feel.
it feels almost right with 3 toms up, but the 8" to my left just doesnt cut it.
im thinking of ordering a 13" to have 3up 1 down, in the sizes i like.

Try puttting the eight all the way on the right. it will give some interesting sound options as well as better positoning.

I think Jojo Mayer does the thing with the 8" all the way to the right, if I'm not mistaken? Anyway, I've always wanted to try that. Pity I don't have an 8" tom D:

Also depends how many cymbals you're using. I have an ICON rack with 4 hanging toms and 7 cymbal arms off it. It's great if you do shows where you need a kit changeover, grab the rest of the band and walk it off stage as is!

I'd never go back to individual stands as it's just too much hassle.

Here's mine - I usually set up an extra 16" tom and an extra 18" crash to the right.

It has more to do with my number of cymbals and the higher range of mounting options. I love my rack, one of the best purchases I ever made. I hate individual stands, such a hassle!

Default Re: 2 up, over bass drum!

May I add though that I used to have a rack and the main reason I got rid of it is because when gigging, the kit was very often shared between a few bands and most of the time is was someone else's. In a large majority of cases when this happens the kit is equipped with cymbal stands. What happened too often is that I would need one or more extra stands for cymbals but having a rack I'd only have boom arms. If you have cymbal stands you can just carry out an extra and set it up where you need it, you can't do that with the boom arms you have on a rack.

This is something to take into account when deciding to get a rack in my opinion.

thanks for the input on the racks guys.
an thanks for posting.

i have a friend who gets all his stuff through his girlfriends father, who happens to be an importer or something, im not 100% sure on his situation, but anyway, he gets all his stuff for alot cheaper than retail, so i might just buy a pearl icon front rack for around $150AUS.
if i dont like it, i can sell it used for more than that.

Wha? The sound in my basement happens to be very nice for rehearsing. During recording sessions the engineers really dug the sound of the room for recording. So no, those industrial concrete bricks don't suck at all.

They're breeze blocks.

I like threads like this, the ones that i can post my kit in.



This is an old pic, i've now got a floor tom and cymbal to go with it. I'm sure you all know the specs by now ;)

If I played 2 up i would definately put them to the left, but as it is, i play 2 down to the right...

i kinda wanna do a little double up to the left double down to the right action, but money sucks.

i find 2up, to the left of the bassdurm alot more comfortable than 1up 2 down. not as mch spine-turning.

but if 1up 2 down works, then good for you.
...whatever floats your boat!..
