I think your right side crash is in a weird position. You must break a lot of cymbals with them high and flat like that.

it's interesting to say the least.

I'm wonderring, how often and how fast to your rolls go from rack to floor tom, because from your pictures it looks like there is at least 3 feet between them.

I've been playing drums for almost 3 and a half years and I have only broken one cymbal - and that was back in the day. I get that comment a lot, but like I said, I don't break many cymbals. This set up works for me. I've been playing them like that for a long time and that, to me, feels more comfortable and more natural than having the cymbals slanted.

I don't often go from my rack tom to my floor tom, but again, I'm comfortable with the set up. The distance doesn't make a huge difference. I think the angle of the picture may also make it seem further than it is.

You know, looking at this again, I definitely see a Travis Barker resemblance.

I keep my cymbals high and probably about as flat as you have yours and I dont find myself breaking cymbals anymore than when they were more slanted. Also that distance seems normal to me from the the rack to floor tom, I use two rack toms tho but i dont have a problem going all around....Nice kit! I agree ^ about the Barker resemblance, what kind of music do you play?

Thanks dude! I play in a band called Electric Blood - we just describe it as balls-to-wall rock n' roll. We encorporate elements of punk and old school heavy metal.

Check us out: www.myspace.com/electricbloodtoronto

Had to plug the band, haha!
