Yep. The drummer in Better Than Lahar plays with only one rack tom and one floor tom. When I was mixing our CD (in Ardour, of course!), I noticed a passage where he did a quick 16th-note tom run across all four toms. Wait, what? Four? He has only two! It turned out that by skillfully hitting only ONE tom (the rack) in different places on the head and with different levels of force, he got four distinct pitches out of that one drum. He's a funk drummer, but he studied jazz at university, and it shows.
