    Usually not, but it works for that kind of upbeat, funk music.

    Can never figure out why drummers would want to have less things to hit, and be able to add to their voice library. All the other musicians have all their strings and keys.

    I don't like a kit THAT small either. Maybe this particular drummer is going through a "minimalist" phase or wanted himself to be more visible on stage. He probably doesn't have a roadie either.

    I bet you one of the other band members picked it out for him. They like to keep us under control as much as possible.

    I really like it, personal preference though when it comes down to it.
    But if you can't make a kick, snare & hat combo sound good / musical; then what makes one think a large kit with two dozen things to make noises on will sound any better?

    Coming from personal experience, in my beginning years I very prog / metal influenced. My setup had 3 rack, two floor and two cymbal bags worth of brass to hit setup with a 3 sided Icon rack.

    Gigging and small amounts of touring with that setup got pretty old, as time went on I started to shed my setup piece by piece.

    The last 10+ years I have brought it down to a 3 or 4pc depending on the music. Most of the time it's 3pc with hats, ride, two crashes and a china.

    I still play the fast / technical music that I did on the large setup or heavier doom / post black metal stuff my current project is having fun with.

    As a gigging drummer, carrying all that extra gear is a PITA. But if you are not into gigging and have your gear permanently planted at your home / studio then go nuts... haha

    My sentiments exactly. Nowadays, I prefer using just a kick, floor tom, snare drum, and mounted tom, along with a little percussion. Same cymbal setup as you ... ride, hats, two crash, and efx cymbal.

    I've also enjoyed experimenting with smaller kits over the past few years (cocktail, jungle, martini, cajon kit).

    When I ordered my most recent Masterworks kit, I actually ordered 8 drums that I could use to make a bunch of different standard to small configurations rather than one large kit.
