im a lefty that plays open armed on a righty set it really allows me to make fine tune ajustments i could never make with bass mounted toms, or even a rack
Im also a lefty that plays open handed. How do you do ur ride? I ride with my right hand now, it took me a few months or so do do a simple beat like that, but now Im pretty fluent righty and lefty. I just could not deal with having my main crash on the right side of the kit, or putting my ride in the middle of my toms, just too shaky and bobby, and, i’d also have to cross my arms a little, cuz it would interfere with my 17” crach if I moved it overto the left too much. I’ve pretty much adapted to playing righty (except of the open hands on the hats), because when ever i have a gig at my school, the setup is always righty, and I dont have time to set it up lefty cuz there are other bands that have to play before and after me.
