    Remote bass drum for low tom positioning

    i, too, did try it for a couple of weeks years ago, but found that the entire kit sounded tiny, because the bass drum was "over there", so not as loud or present and also, the toms didn't resonate sympathetically with the kick, so the "roar of the kit at full throttle" disappeared as well...
