    Default Setup idea...

    Eventually, I think I might go for a Mahogany Masterworks...

    Just wondering what anyone thoght of this particular setup!

    In Emerald Green Fade, with

    14x6.5 snare
    20x18 kick

    from left to right, in a crescent shape.

    15x15 rack tom (low)
    13x13 rack tom (low)
    6x18/6x21 quarter toms over the middle of the 15x15/13x13
    10x7 rack tom
    12x8 rack tom
    16x16 floor tom
    18x18 floor tom
    Less, by simple definition, cannot be more. Seriously. Check the ****ing dictionary.

    I think I would add one more in between the 12x8 and the 16x16 to give it a ballance in the size of drums. Just me though.

    Mike Mangini has a setup sorta like that, its symetrical in a crescent. I would think that it would work great.
    I wish that one thing came back from 80's metal: the ability for rock to change the physical properties of things. Like they could go up to a Geo Metro and go 'squibbily blabbily boo' and you have a sleek Lambourgini. Thanks, Night Ranger!

    Mmm...

    Dave: One time I was playing a 4-piece, with a 12x10 and a 16x16 and I fell in love with the tonal separation between 'em...

    Mr. Poss: I was thinking more along the lines of Dave Silveria, but yeh, Mike's kit looks pretty damn sweet. And ambidextrous too!

    I like the idea. I haven't seen the set ups the other guys think its similar to, but I like the double sided kit concept.
    As an alternate suggestion, maybe evenly graduated tom sizes on L and R? so maybe 16 and 14 on R, 15 and 13 on L? could do some cool melodic-type stuff there maybe. On down side, would loose size of 18" drum, that is, unless a head manufacturer starts making 17" heads....!

    Yah, mangini's set is sort of like that but to be honest it'll taske a lot of training to do that setup to. You'll hafta teach yourself how to work with that.

    you canīt get a kit with an outer ply of mahogany in emerald fade.. cause itīs not a solid color... the mahagony is too dark for that .. you would need to have an outer ply of maple to order that color
