  • Td-15k setup

    Hi, just switched from an acoustic set to the TD-15k. I'm trying to keep the setup as close as I can to my old set. I'm noticing that in my current setup the bass drum is lined up under tom 2 and not centered. Is this setup acceptable? Or do I need to rearrange a few things?

    You should set up your kit however it's comfortable for you to play. There's no real right/wrong here.

    My kick is also a little to the right of center which i find helps with my double kick pedal.

      As much as I would love it to be symmetrical, my bass drum pedal sits under tom 2 as well, in the gap between snare and floor tom. As campster says above - whatever is comfortable to play!

        Welcome to the forum, Spidey!

        Congrats on your new TD-15. As the other Gentlemen have said, rearrange setup however you feel comfortable playing on your kit!
        Looks are only tertiary, at best. First comes comfortability and sound! **

        ** (...know, I know... this is the V-Drums forum, were GASeous pictures of big, monsterous kits leads to years worth of drool-attacks, angered wives, empty wallets, canned ravioli; ...and 'mine-is-bigger-than-yours' - meaning the diameter of ride-cymbals of course - is ever-present! But, hey...)

        Happy Drumming!
