Thats a completely different thing altogether!

Having two is fine, lots of drummers have them and yeah, most of the time theyre for double bass.

what my point is, is the awkwardness. Just play them on the side that corresponds to your "strong arm" like normal! lol

Speakin as a lefty, im pretty sick of the reception and bad reputation lefties get when playin gigs! its soooo annoying when i have to tell the people doing the sound, so ive got pretty used to the "Oh for god sakes!" and such! haha! but its their fuckin job so MEHHH!

i started playin lefty just naturally self taught about 6 years ago and when having lessons, my drum teacher used to get me to play right handed and it just wouldnt happen!

its not unnatural or anything!lol!

They have to move the snare, hat, and any tom mics around because the kit's set up the wrong way round.

soundmen don't appreciate you moving mics around (unless they know you and know you know what you're doing).

there is a stereotypical soundman, and he's a complete arsehole. I would say 65% of the soundmen i've met in my years of gigging conform to that stereotype.

Now im imagining 65% of soundmen wear orange boiler suits, moaning about everything.

The boiler suits are for personal taste, redtubes not working for me atm.

yeh a lot of them are arseholes! there are a handful of guys that are ok though!

Our band Ezra entered the surface unsigned festival and at the first round at the Flapper and firkin in Brum we arrived first to soundcheck.
I told the guy doing the sound that i was left handed and i'd have to swap everything around just to go through a couple of songs and he just said "Yeah, go ahead then!" so i did! with a look like this on my face in shock at his laidback-ness!!

He even made us a mix of our live set on CD and stuff which was niiiice! supposedly the guy that night, Mike i think his name was is one of the most sought after sound engineers around the area so thinkin about it it does help a lot if the sound people are flexible and arent arseholes!

Ours are usually ok, just incompetent/too stoned




Playing at a big(ish) festival was an eye-opener - people set our gear up for us and no-one batted an eyelid at our stageplot/input list !




Edit: Oh yeah, left-handed drummers are cunts - wastes so much time between bands
Mind you, anyone who needs eleventy billion toms and more than a couple of cymbals is also a bellend
