    Both ways work... it's whatever you're comfortable with, and whatever you think looks best for the audience. I like how PercWorld re-engineered this issue for himself... a single-kick setup where the kick drum AND the player are straight forward... https://www.pearldrummersforum.com/s...post1854413266

    It's the same on either setup. I used both kicks to setup the distance of my double pedal and set up the same way.

    I just rotate my whole kit to the left to have the kick square to the stage. Without 2 kicks I think a kit looks odd to not have the kick facing straight ahead

    I do like his new setup, I've liked all of his setups actually

    My snare is center for me. Don't be fooled by the direction of the hi-hat plate. My heel is on the floor as I almost play it sideways.

    So... because your kick is straight-facing, your whole body is effectively facing that china on the left?

    I would say more so the 12" rack in the last 2 pictures. That is the direction my body would be facing.

    Well, maybe between the rack and the china.

    I was actually referring to Dale's set up.

    I'm odd man out. I like it when I see a kick off set a little bit. Doesn't look odd to me at all. As long as you do t setup with the back to your audience like a guy used to do here on NEO scene years back. He said it was so people could "see the mechanics of what he was doing" I kinda though he was just a self absorbed tool.

    I like how you use a small tom near your ride. It allows you to have you ride a little close than if it were set up traditionally.

    More than anything, I have brought in closer. The feel is genuinely a four piece.

    No. I’m looking straight ahead.

    But your HH foot is actually ACROSS the footboard, right? Isn't that what you said above?
