i just witnessed greatness at a show of „Garaj Mahal“ at the Messe. at Peter Coura’s
drummer, err, musician extraordinaire Sean Rickman (link here as well), with
Kai Eckhardt on bass, joined by Torsten deWinkel on guitars.
uhm, to topic, yes:
Sean shared an interesting idea for a small footprint 4 piece setup, referring to a Pearl-type tom mounting system:
he places the rod for the smaller tom into the right bass drum clamp, pointing to the left.
and the rod for the „floor“-rack tom into the left clamp, pointing to the right.
but this one upside down, so the short end goes into the bass drum clamp, and the long part faces towards the tom.
as soon as i catch him doing this, i will post a pic here!
