Hi Hat Placement - 9 o'clock, 12 o'clock ??


Anyone else out there besides myself place their hats at the 12 o'clock postion ? I have found that using a DW 9000 remote HH stand and placing my hats at the 12 o'clock position versus the standard 9-10 position has personally brought my playing to a higher level. I place my #1 tom at approx the 10 o'clock postion and it has really increased my speed and accuracy on certain fills. Another advantage I have found with the hats at 12 is that although very infrequent I have yet to have any stick hits especially when playing off time signatures/beats. Obviously my personal preference but curious if anyone else has experienced the same satisfaction from this change. I have been using this set up for probably 2 plus years now..

Bill Bruford does that, his kit is set up to be symmetrical.
