Default New drum setup

Here was attempt number one....













Mostly in that last picture you can see the highest tom and the hats were interfering with each other pretty horribly, so I did a little brainstorming with the hardware I had and....














Now everything's in a more comfortable position even if it looks a bit odd at first glance. The hats are still kinda close to the highest tom but I only bash em on accident if I'm being rather careless with my playing anyways.

Old thread with older pictures for comparison:

I have the same sizes and have them set up this way with the ride cymbal over the 12 inch tom a bit. Maybe move your toms to the right a bit and get some room by your hats.

I'm a pretty short guy, and I thought about that but I'm thinking I'm so short that doing that might defeat the entire purpose of this shift... to get my ride in a little closer to the front of me rather than almost directly to my right. I originally had it where most people with a 4-piece nowadays put their ride which is where problems came in.

I might try that sometime as your setup looks quite comfortable, it just might be a little too high for tiny me... lol

another idea would be having just your 8", 10" toms in front of you and have your 12" as a floor tom or something. (pic below).

I considered doing that but wrote that off really fast because I really prefer 3-up to 2-up for sure... Maybe if space ends up being an issue or I end up sharing my kit at a show for those who want something more "traditional" I suppose.

One more try:

















Much more comfortable than I anticipated.... Now I just need some new cymbals to replace those manhole covers :3 lol
