You're my hero!

That said, I once played with a rock 'n' roll drummer ('50s style rock 'n' roll that is) who insisted on using a double kick pedal. Man, he got the most amazing, funky grooves out of that thing.

I've been playing drums for over 40 yrs. and I know "back in the day" I used to over-play the hell out of songs. I used to use at least 6 mounted toms, 24" bass drum, etc. Nowadays I use a 4 pc. kit, and concentrate on tempo and staying in the pocket. "Less IS More"...

We had a drummer who insisted on doing rolls and crashes all of time, during solos and vocals, didn't matter. The rest of the band decided enough was enough, and before a rehearsal we literally removed two toms and two crash cymbals from his kit. When he arrived we told him that if he wished to remain part of the band, that was the kit he was going to play. His playing did improve, but his approach and attitude toward blues drumming didn't and he left the group a few months later.

Some of the best drummers I have seen could make an oatmeal box sound great and performed with a very basic trap kit. Hell, I've got dozens of harps, half a dozen amps and half a dozen microphones. But I don't insist on hauling them all with me and making an attempt to use every one.
