Forum admins, please forgive this transgression I am about to commit. I know this isn't a "2 up to the left" setup. I'm merely showing RinkRat my alternative setup to the "2 up to the left."
This is how my kit looks when I do a 1 up 2 down. I like it because my hihat can go where I want it, my 1st crash is closer and more centered and I can get everything nice and low where I like it. You may notice my floor tom and 12" tom are flared way out to the right. I have long arms and this is the natural position where my sticks fall and I don't feel like I'm reaching around behind me to get a floor tom.
