    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

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

    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.
