I used to play matched grip with the snaredrum as low as possible and titled away from me because otherwise I would hit my legs and I hate having it tilted towards me. This position worked great for me, since doing consistent rimshots with no effort is quite necessary for punk rock .

Now since then I got a new kit with a new Gibraltar Rock snaredrum stand, and it doesn't go as low, so while I was still playing matched I had it as flat as it would go with the slight tilt not directly towards me.

But since I'm playing traditional now I'm having it tilted mostly sidewards.
