I'm currently setting up right handed to try and exercise my right foot which has always been weaker but gives me problems due to hip issues, but I set up like this a lot. Left footed/right handed basically.

I finally got set up in the living room today for the first time in months (my daughter's coloring stuff was left lying around and got in the shot). I like this configuration.

Drums, L-R: 13" Tama Imperialstar tom left over from a big kit I used to have; Pearl steel piccolo snare; 14x5.5" Yamaha wood shell snare (birch.mahogany/falkata I think) made in the 1990s; 18" mystery floor tom: no brand name, synthetic material shell. When I had to get rid of my last normal set I converted an old pedal to hit the bottom head of this. With a lightly muffled Pinstripe it sounds pretty good.
Cymbals and other stuff, L-R: 14" unknown A Zildjian with a crack; 14" unknown A Custom Ziljian; 18" Sabian HH Chinese with cracks and missing chunks; metal O (aluminum, I think) from the side of a building hit with a pedal; UFO; 12" Wuhan Chinese, 6" Sabian splash; LP cowbell and blocks; 20" K Zildjian Suspended Orchestra; 16" A Zildjian crash with missing chunk; 18" Sabian HH Dark Crash.
The Dark Crash and the little Wuhan are the only cymbals I ever bought new.
As I said, I like this setup, but I miss the kits I used to have, and I don't ever want to get rid of any gear again.

Posted in some other threads, too - My Not A Cocktail No Stand Crazy Tiny Drum Kit! The 'bass' drum is a 14"X14" Maxitone MIJ from the late 60s. 8" Remo Buffalo drum as a snare. 10" Buffalo drum as a tom. 12" mismatched splashes as high hats. 16" vintage no logo ride. No heavy stands to lug around. No set up or tear down. Just pick it up, put it where you want it and play. Fits in the passenger seat of most cars. It is so low to the ground that sitting down is a must. I love this kit!

More weird set-ups please!

Bozzio..!

Too many drums, but cool nonetheless.

And Bruford's is super cool. Those stands look wimpy, and I bet those guys knocked 'em over a lot. Oh, wait..that's White. I don't see Buford's photo..

These electronic kits are definitely interesting and unusual.

I've set the video to start at the 2:00 mark where they start showing the instruments (developed and built by members of the band).

Here they are covering a song that most people will probably recognize.

Damn! Definitely one of the most badass looking electronic sets out there.


...This set's probably not that interesting to most lefties out there,
but I set up this left footed/left handed set to work out weaker limbs while also trying to keep some contrast sound-source wise.

I feel like a toddler on this thing right now though... lol.

Good ol' Greg Saunier's massive hats...
love the amount of control he has over those things.

How about a new twist on a "double" bass. (Two bass shells fused together)

Amazing, innovative and unconventional drummer in both his approach and kit. The Law of Form Follows Function applied to drums and drumming.
