I'm 5'10" on a good day (when my back isn't acting up). But I sit high-ish, and I prefer raising my hands to play the rack tom over leaning forward to reach it.Are you tall?..at one time I had that exact set up and I still think about it. I mention tall because I'm 5'9 and had to have my 14 stand mounted to reach it as I sit stupid low. My 14 just blew me away forever...worlds perfect drum 10x14. That is one moth--..f'n rock your ass off kit.
