Tony's an awsome drummer. I'm very big on funk as far as the drums go. Tony Royster is one of the great for that. Along with david garibaldi.

Great player, great chops. I love his style, and I still remember his solo when he was like 12.

Whats with the smaller bass drums in front of his actual bass drums tho?

they are bass drum woofers they make your bass drum have a more low-end sound

That's a sub kick. Yamaha makes them to produce lower end bass. Peace on ya!
