  • Freeing the left hand side of the kit

    Just out of curiousity… where exactly do you put your module on your rack. Since most drumkits are right hand side oriëntated (well, for right handed players that is).

    I mean, my case e.g.:
    • right hand side has
      • ride
      • china
      • 2 floortoms
      • PD-7 for percussion between my right leg and 1st floortom
      • a crash that is on the front/right hand side.
    • left hand side:
      • hi-hat
      • splash
      • a crash that is on the fron/left hand side
      • a PD-7 squeezed between my module and hi-hat
      • module.
    Module is on the far left on the rack, with no more room between it and the PD-7. Idealy, another pad (2nd snare/floortom) should/could be placed on the left hand side, but currently no room because of the module.

    So, question... where do you guys put your module/how much is on your left hand side? Is the module on the far end of the rack, or on an extension bar on the rack?

        Like to save space by putting it between hi-hat and tom.

          Depends on my kit config. Sometimes on the right above the "floor tom(s)" sometimes on the left above the hats, sometimes on the left below and left of the hats.

            I use spd-sx in the setup of any kit and it usually goes left and above the hats so it can serve as anything from congas to 2nd snare, splashes etc... The main module rests beneath it. If I'd use a desicated pad instead of it, it would probably go in the same spot and since there's no need for a snare stand or space for the floor tom (acoustic), you can keep the module beneath, and mount this pad on anything high enough to hold it there.
