Default Moved my kit about

Cleared some space in the other corner of my man cave and moved the kit into it:



I've also bought the elements of the kit closer together based on feedback from the last pictures. Does this look about right or at least better?

First off, you have a beautiful kit and lovely cymbals. Very nice!

That already looks like quite a comfortable kit to play. Personally, if I were to sit down behind it for a session, I'd probably make a couple of adjustments: I'd lower the ride a fair bit (probably past the rack tom) and place it more over the floor tom (although you might not want to go so far if you enjoy crashing the ride). I'd also change the angle of the crash to be a bit flatter.

I also see the hi-hat pedal is butted up against the snare stand foot, if you fancy the hi-hat a bit closer you can adjust the snare stand feet to be more angled and less flat, so they take up a little less floor space. You can probably also loosen the snare stand height adjustment screw to swivel the legs independently from the snare basket to rearrange the available space a little.

But the most important thing is that it's comfortable for you personally to play, and I have no doubt you'll enjoy playing such a beautiful setup!

Many thanks for the input. I'll be sure to take them into account.

As a complete newbie I'm very lucky to have such a kit. I've just shot a vid of my absolute very first groove. Well sort of a groove. It's not very groovy at all truth be told. Watch out for a new thread. :D

Mart,

One of the things I noticed about my Yamaha 7200 series BD pedal is that I have to make sure the underside lock nut on the tension spring is really tight, else it will loosen itself and fall off. Finger tight was simply not enough. Have you found the same?

This post and the Groove post have been moved to the appropriate sections.

Are those pedals blue or does no one remove the plastic from them? Love the white

The plastic eventually comes off on its own

I recommend sitting on the stool with the snare between you legs where comfortable to play then place the bass pedal and hi hat pedal where your feet are then build the kit around that. Readjust your set-up when you feel like it needs a tweak..
