3 Bass Drums
why do some drummers put smaller bass drum in front of their big bass drum, also what is it called if it has a name and what does it do.
I have to admit that I have never seen this setup. Very interesting. I know that some metal drummers are using two and sometimes three bass drums that are different sizes, but have never seen it done this way.
In fact, I did some research and could not FIND a bass drum the size of the small one. It almost looks like a small marching bass from a bass drum line.
As far as what it does--maybe there is a pedal that we cannot see and that is just his way of mounting another bass to save space. Or maybe it is some kind of trigger setup.
I am hoping that some of our readers have more information.
