Feb.19, 2021 edit: I added a simply gorgeous 22" K-Con Bounce Ride, a new 18" A M/T Crash, 15" K Sweet Hats and switched everything around, so that means a revised birds-eye view is in order:

More of a low flying birds view...

A little pratice kit shot of working in a new, brighter 22" ride in my right hand position so I have moved the 22" Master Vintage as my left ride. Still have to learn the new Traditional Medium Light... I like it a lot but it has a particular note that I need to get comfortable with.

15” Master Vintage Hats (932 over 1152)
22” Master Vintage Ride (1993)
18" Black Pearl Crash (1310)
22” Traditional Medium Thin Ride (2550 grams)
20” Black Pearl Crash / Ride (1616)

Do you play that ride on the far left with your left hand?

Yes AND no!

I'm one of those left handed people who play a right handed kit. So while my feet have no idea I'm left handed, my hands are still pretty flexible and I will play open handed quite a bit. Over the past few days I've noticed I've been pretty comfortable playing it with either hand in that position. It just depends on the style and which hand is leading at that moment.

I normally run both rides on my far right when using two, but this is proving to be quite fun!

How about crashing the far left ride with your right hand?

(Tough crowd...)

Nope... right foot!!!!

I picked those up for my 5 1/2 year old grandson at Christmas and he has already worn them out! They sound awful but when your that age, the only thing important is they just make sound!

His parents graciously decide the bongos should stay at Big Man's house with the other drums... go figure!:blush:

Time to pull the primary birds eye thread back to the top.... a rehearsal from last night for an upcoming local NPR live show... choose the small IND'e set up with a Tama Star Copper and the Bosphorus rig with 15" Master Vintage hats, 18 &20" Black Pearl crashes and a new addition for this particular line up, the 22" Traditional Medium Thin Ride. Sounded pretty nice!

Nice! Do I see correctly: your ride on the right has rivets, and your "left-side ride" has none? Which one are you riding more often?

that’s right! Right side is certainly my primary. Left side is pretty thin, ~1800 so I can ride and crash on it. Sending it to Jesse Simpson soon for some fine tuning and to add a rivet as well!
