    Default Dave Weckl Style Setups...

    Anybody tried a setup similar to Dave's, with the tom angles and cymbal placement and what not? It's actually pretty comfortable and as much as my change my kit setup, I always end up going back to this!

    Here's some of mine from previous points...

    no i have not tried that setup yet. I have done a Neil Peart one witch is similar, but not a Weckl one. I might have to try that. Awsome kit too.

    I had somthing very similar to that for a while, but I didn't do that with the rack toms. I noticed that Peart also does this with the racks (Left higher than right) That seems uncomfortable. But whatever floats your boat.
    If you are one of the 100% of teens who doesn't give a **** who smokes pot, put this in your sig.

    If you play traditional grip, that tom setup is the best and the most comfy.

    Yeah, it Peart's look VERY uncomfortable. The way myself (and I guess Dave) is that they're just angled along the same line, for traditional grip... hopefully you know what I mean...

    Right! And you know actually, if you look at a picture of Stewart Copeland's old Police kit, you'll see (while they're a little flatter) his first two rack toms adopt the same sort of principal...

    Nice kit setup, good to see more traditional grip players out there. I myself do the same sort of thing just not higher to lower thing, but my toms are reasonably flat. A lot of match grip players have tried to play my kit and have gone how the f*ck can you play this.

    Looks cool. I play both types of grips (trad with only my left hand though)

    Looks quite comfy, never tried that sort of setup myself.

    Generally you only play traditional with one hand...

    I set up my kit like that once. It's the perfect setup for traditional grip. Nice kit!!!
