    Rich..................looks like a great opportunity to grow a little, if I'm reading it all correctly.................good for you.
    Seeing the photos of those Yammy pads takes me back to the late 80s/early 90s when I was using the same in a pop-cover band.
    I had everything on a rack system -- it broke down into two major sections and we would hang the two sections on bicycle hooks inside the gear trailer..........it worked.
    The Yammy tone generators back in those days were anything but user-friendly.

    Very cool story about the Yammy pads. Yes, it definitely a chance to grow. We're taking it one band practice at a time and it's a "wait and see what happens" project. Thanks for chiming in.

    Great to hear it's working out! Couldn't happen to a nicer or more deserving guy. Also speaks well about your talent and courage to make it a reality. Maybe I should ask for an autograph now, and avoid the rush later on?

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    Thanks Brian. We have no idea where this project is headed. No gigs and since the music is metal, it is shunned by the so called "community". It's fun to play this genre since it reminds me of my early days of listening to heavy metal. I've mellowed out since those days and spend time playing simpler stuff in a slower groove but this has me working up a sweat which is a good thing.

    We haven't practiced in weeks but Saturday turned into a "shop" day. The bass player forked out some $ and showed up with this behemoth of a banner. In order to create room in my garage to hang it, I had to do some serious housekeeping. He's keeping his bass rig set up in the corner next to my garage door. I think we're getting a little ahead of ourselves...but hey, who am I to say anything? I bought two reso heads with logos right?

    cool stuff Rich. I'm a big Vinnie fan too. Got to see him live a few times once at The Boardwalk in Orangevale with WWIII 91 (Jimmy Bain was the last bass player for that group). Before that with Dio in the 80's and Black Sabbath on the Dehumanizer tour! around 94 that album is bad ***

    Thanks Ricky! I 'm hoping the SK3 coated heads will tame down the ringing I'm hearing in the kicks.

    Thanks Gilles. It seems like the older we get, we notice time slipping away more. All of us in this band are in our mid to late '50s. I'm the oldest at 57 and the three others players are 54, 55 and 56 years old. I'm feeling every bit of "57" and this may be my last effort to go "All In". I'm looking forward to retirement as a State Employee but have at least 11 more years of public service before I call it quits.

    Very cool connection we have slinky. I don't think anybody on this forum has ever been to the "BoardWalk" in Orangevale California and it's cool we can share some stories about that club.

    I was directed to Vinny's website and found some interesting tid bits about his life. Even with his reputation as one of the premier metal drummers, Vinny needs a "side job" to supplement his income. Believe or not, he has his own computer maintenance company and goes around southern California (San Bernardino) and seeks businesses that need help setting up and maintaining their computer systems. Between tours and clinics, he offers a "One on One Drum Lesson with Vinny Appice" at his studio for a fee of $500. That can get you a 90 minute lesson but travel and lodging expenses are not covered.

    Last time I checked, his brother Carmine offers the same "One on One" lesson too at the same price but all of Carmine's slots were "sold out". He lives in New York City. Vinny had two slots left the last time I checked but that was almost a month ago. For just a fleeting moment, I almost gave it a thought and clicked "Buy" but the wife would of "flipped out" and I would of been "kicked to the curb" and my kits would of been "firewood" for a nice bonfire. I'm racking up too many bills on G.A.S. again and it's raised a "Red Flag" and the wife is loosing her cool.
