The general shift to the left was definitely helpful, if a little precarious. Appreciate all the input and pics of different setups! View attachment 595292
I used 10/12/13 for years as my 3 up setup and then realized that starting smaller and going with 8/10/12 was better not only in terms of ergonomics but also sound, as it gives me a much wider tonal range (plus I just love 8” toms).

Watched this today. Looks pretty ergonomic.

I’ve never seen Steve Smith with hair before, bit of a double take. If I could play like him, ergonomics might matter a little less. I need all the efficiency I can get

I’m loving the spread with the 12”/15”/ 18”, I bet 10”/12”/15”/18” would be killer. I only have single headed 8”s at the moment, but it is in the mix

I was three up for many years in the late 80's and still enjoy throwing an extra tom back in if the music calls to me! I was probable overly influenced by the 8 & 10" concert toms so many of us "older" guys ran up over our hi-hats in the early 80's that I never got comfortable pushing my hat to far to my side so the 10" always went high up over it.

A few recent forays...

Yeah, you guy's killed it with this unit!!!! My world is as clean and simple as I could ever want... trigger a pad or the whole set, nice and simple.

And you know, I did not think of it but I play three up more than I thought I did, it's just that often the first tom is replaced by a pad... which yes, at times has a tom sample on it!
