the tri tom setup is a joy to play, if you have time try setting your toms up like that

huh, I hadn't noticed it when I posted the pic, but he's using an 'offset' bass pedal. The beaters are on a central assembly- they're attached to the drum, you can barely see it behind the snare stand.
Both pedals are essentially slave units.

I just got one of these a few days ago- it's pretty dang cool!

Thanks Loop.

Notice where the second snare is, whenever i played Rush, since i didn't have a big enough kit to sound exactly like him, i used that second snare as his higher toms.

After a while, I was feeling a little saucey, so i combined mine and my cousins kits to make one super kit, here it is.

Floyd, I recognize those pics...crazy kid.


As for my strange set-up, I call it the "Hardcore Special". Bass, snare, hi-hat, and big freaking crash or ride. I have actually added an option to this set-up with the double bass pedal. But yeah, this is all I ever see hardcore drummers use, I don't know why most of them bring a rack and floor tom, they never play them...(I'm only bashing the local SoFla scene kids, don't get pissed if you're not from here)

thanks for the Mangini pic- I'd been hearing that he sets up symmetrically but could never find a good shot of the kit.
That's perfect!

and of course, it's always a pleasure to consider what Bruford's done for the art of percussion. Nice 'bill thru the years' montage!
