Drum solo for the week
I re-organized my office so I could get my kit closer to my computer :) So far so good – the samson mic’s sound VERY good consider the cost/grade. I’ve been extremely happy with them and the Alesis MultiMix 16 USB console.
Well, after a completely frustrating day and not so hot week at work, I finally had had enough of the 3D animation I’ve been working on and just beat the tar out of my drums.
be warned, this has nothing to do with flash, and it’s a completely self-indulgent “drummers” type of solo playing. I don’t wanna hear comments like:
“MORE COWBELL” – bad
“that cowbell sounds off…” – yes, that’s because I meant to play it as a rhythm on top of the main rhythm and “attempt” to keep it going through out ( 4 on top of tripplet feel I guess you could call it ).
“it sounds the same all the way through…”- it’s not, but its definitely more for the drummers in the audience😉
Read on only if you like being bored by drum stuff…
For those enthusiasts who might wonder about the kit – its a 2006 Hawaiian Thunder Tama kit. 9 Ply shells – 8 are Bubinga wood from South Africa, the outer ply is Koa from Hawaii. 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18×22, 14×6.5 Snare, 13″ hats (k top, z bottom zillgian), 20″ Sabian Ride, 8″ Sabian splash, 14″ K crash, 16″ Sabian Vault crash, Sabian china, DW 5000 pedals
it’s the best sounding kit I’ve heard or played on – unbelievable.
