gettin an extra kick is only ginna cost me 50 bucks...and i will use it....i dont think there is any wrong answer here. the right answer is just use what you like. i dont give a damn about quotes from other famous drummers...im not them and have no intention of bein them so ill just play how i love to play. i hope i dont sound to harsh its just this is a topic that will do on and on and never end.

personally, i find it much easier to get a comfortable setup with one bass drum and a double pedal. it's also less room and less shit to haul.
Beat on.
