your kit isnt unpractical i think its set up pretty sweet and seeing as u crash the ride its in probably one of the most suitable positions but that one is just rediculously un-necesary not only does it look weird but its gotta been damn hard to play...

i hope he's not a member here. if he is, hi victor!!

we toured with them briefly last summer, he used to get me back for teasing him about his cymbal heights by raising my cymbals to an ungodly height while i was playing.

i'd have lowered his while he was playing but i imagine it would have just improved his playing. =P

he's a great guy though. and i suppose if it works for him, then it's right.

I think it's just stupid to play cymbals that high, but I suppose if one wants to suck I won't get in the way. But besides his cymbals how about that bed spread in his bass drum. That looks aweful to me and screams poser noob.

It angers me when it becomes about what you look like and not how you sound, and that's what he's doing with those cymbals. I'm all in favor of having a weird or different setup but it should make sense and make you better, not worse.

But ya know, whatever it don't effect me at all. I don't have to play on that kit, lol Sorry if I seem harsh on this one.
