Transcription Help Wanted

Hi all,

I'm working on transcribing the Mike Portnoy Anthology (a book of Dream Theater drumming) for a normal sized 5-piece kit and I would appreciate some help. I've finished one song so far which came out good, and I'm now moving onto the classic tune '6:00'. The problem is that the piece opens up with a fill that runs down 6 toms (the highest 4 toms are actually octobans) and so I need a way to emulate that sound on a 5 piece kit.

If you want to hear the opening, look here:
If you want the part written out, look here: View image: 6 00 Intro

Anyway, my ideas include using the bass drum as the lowest tom, using the snare somewhere, or running through the three toms, and then running through them again with the bass drum added on top to make things sound lower. I'm looking for creative ideas like these to capture a similar sound out of a smaller drum set. All input is welcome.
