    Hello everyone..I think this is my first post on the forums. Here're some photos of my setup for performance, and some of the same setup with the inclusion of additional drums when i'm teaching percussion to students.

    Performance setup:

    Lots of fine drums around here! I got a nice little thing in the post yesterday. I dont know how to upload pictures here, but you all know what a LP Gen II bongo looks like. My new bongo is a Palisades Park mahogany, and even if it looks like a Gen II, it does not SOUND like one. One reason for that is new and very good skins. So now I finally have a bongo that is in the same league as my congas and the rest of the stuff. I think I should mention one thing: That drum has perfect bearing edges, something that cannot be said about newer LPs. And that makes a lot of difference.

    Hey, we all had to start from somewhere!! Try getting some shakers, a cabasa, a tambourine, a scraper,clave sticks....stuff to put in a bag so that when you get invited to a drum circle you'll have to start thinking of specific rhythms for particular instruments.Then, next thing you'll know, you'll be acquiring congas, bongos and a whole bunch of stuff that you never knew existed....but will have endless fun playing! Works for me!

    Had to squeeze this lot in between a bass amp and the back door at this New Year's Eve party! Thank God for the Travel Congas and mini-timbales! Not seen are the windchimes and triangle on the left boom arm and big splash on the right one for the timbales.

    Lol. thanks man. Yeah, when laying them seated on the floor with the donut-ring cushions (called chutta), usually the dayan or danya (the wooden drum) is tilted slightly forward to accomodate the finger technique. I was using the tabla only for the quiet bits here and there (besides, I'm a novice at this stage, no way am I able to rip out the classic rhythms yet), but them and the windchimes give a nice texture.

    I got the inspiration to set them this way courtesy of this guy, Bob Muller. Mind you, he sets the banya (the metal drum) on the right and has two danyas...although a number of conventionally right-handed people do that, it's a bit rare to see it on video, much less a Westerner. Enjoy.
