Buddy Rich, 2 up 1 down??

I saw a photo of Buddy behind a kit with a pair of bongoes to his left on a stand. I know his standard setup, but it is odd seeing him with extra stuff. He expressed strong opinions of having anything more in a kit that his standard 1 up 2-down. Even then, he seemed to rarely use his 2nd FT for anything more than a towel stand.

EDIT: I apologize for all the edits. My connection/PC here is ultra-laggy.

I forgot to mention: Don Bennett drum studio in Bellvue, Washington has a white Fibes kit on display that Buddy owned. It was a humbling, and yet very cool feeling to be in it's presence.

That last 30 seconds or so is why we practice rudiments.
To play boring, repetitive solos with flawless technique? I liked the playing before and after the thirty seconds of bzzzzzz, but the solo just made me go zzz zzz zzz...

There's also a clip out there where Buddy is playing a 5pc Pearl kit and he goes right thru the FT head. It's a great clip!

Yes it is. I've seen it before too. I think in that same video his cymbal stand comes loose. I'm not sure though.
