James Pingenot - Into the Woods

James’s setup from Into The Woods.

“I used this setup for Into the Woods when the pit was too small to stand up which makes the show pretty awkward. The large bass drum is played by a foot pedal. I had to use the point of my toe to do it, especially when playing the crotales for “Giants in the Sky”. It would be a lot easier with a remote pedal, I think. The Miller Machine over the high tom is also invaluable when you have to put the triangle out of easy reach.”
