    Cool Wish me luck

    This morning i prepped my acoustic DW Collectors by stuffing them full of towels, bags, paper to kill the acoustic tone. I will be running RT30 triggers with the SPD30 for sounds and acoustic cymbals.
    We are going to be playing a small boomy venue today in a school cafeteria/gymnasium/auditorum where drums often create quite a mess, and micing them to be in the mix just makes everything loud. The only mics will be on the hats and an overhead for cymbal mix.
    Wish me luck. This is the first time I have ever done this and am hoping it will work.
    Ill post pictures later

    Good luck jazzkat. Experimenting is the best way to find things out.

    And I'd play 1-up, 2-down....because I still can.

    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

    I've had to trigger my kit several times but mostly I only triggered kicks and snare.

    I'm glad it worked out well jazzkat.

    I played in a gym setting at the church (cement block walls, concrete floors, and a nice rectangular shape) a few years ago. I learned the hard way that I should have done everything I could to muffle the drums. In respect, I probably should have loaded up the drums with some laundry, too.
