I rearrange my kit about once a month. Sometimes it's set up in a regular fashion and other times, like now, it's wrapped around my congas providing alternative percussion sounds.

I ended up getting a couple of extension cables to be able to move some of the pieces around (I like the hi hat on my right).

Enjoy your new kit!

after 3 months it was time to reorganise my set and make some room for a 4th tom.

I took it all appart and rebuilt again. made a nice cable plan and start building it up again.

I use a Sonos zoneplayer for my music. i controll the imput music with my phone.  the mix with music and drum module sound goes into my Fiio headphone amplifier and than to my KZ KS6 in ear monitors. i use a long 3 meter headphone extention cable that i snake arround my toms and snare and the connector is hanging under my snare so no wire problems anymore.

ooh yeah ... i am a lefty ...

What's the plexi-glass shelf that you phone is sitting on? Is that something you made or did you buy it someplace?

Hahaha. yeah i made that myself .  just a piece of plexiglass. i think 2 mm thick. .
I used 3M double sided stickers on the bottom of the module. the glass is resting on the drumrack so its pretty stable. than i added those rubber phone holder for in cars . this works perfect.

THe Fiio headphone amplifier is a must .. the sound of the module is ok .. but the Fiio is transfer it into live sound and a lot louder if you like.  it gives you the pressure just as a real accoustic drum set.
