    Hi Will, killin show Saturday night at Lakeland Community College. The clinic was great too. I was wondering why you have your cymbals angled the way you do on the right side of your kit. I am experimenting with cymbal height and angles as well. Best to you, Dave

    That Thing You Do...

    Brotha Dave,

    I am always looking for something different to do with my cymbals; there's no real technical concept behind it.

    Used to hav'm high years ago and surely as I've gotten older, it's nice to put them where I can reach them. With the cymbals slanted out as you saw, I can get them even lower and still get to the edge for volume when necessary!

    All Good, Thanks for writing!

    Will

    I was wondering the same thing. I saw videos on YouTube and the Pearl drums website, and you have the crashes angled away from you. I had never seen a drum kit set up that way. It really has me thinking.

    By the way, I also am left handed and right footed. Peace and goodwill.

    I did lower my crash cymbals, and I really like it. Thanks Will.
