    Default Cobus switches to DW

    Cobus recently posted that he got a DW kit, but there's no word if he switched endorsements from UDrum. Not much to talk about, but I felt like making the thread anyway. Could turn into something soon.

    Last I heard about his gear, I almost felt sorry for the guy. Paiste pst5's, Tama superstar, and Samson mics. All good stuff, but you'd think a drummer of his talent and fame would only be messing with the high end stuff. Miss a moment miss a lifetime, no?

    He has a big blog post on his switch. He'll be working with DrumChannel (works closely with DW) and now plays exclusively DW drums and hardware. Now we just need to see how long it'll take to switch from TRX.

    yeah i was amazed at how simple his early setup was. But he did incredible things with mid-range gear

    Wow, you've been out of loop. Up until recently, he was endorsed by uDrum and had a signature kit. He's also endorsed by TRX, which makes some good stuff and is a great springboard endorsement company.

    I go to my local drum shop and purchase my sticks. I like to touch them before I buy them ;-)

    I've never heard of those brands, so it's no wonder I had no idea. Admittedly though, I haven't seen a large number of his videos. I just know he got famous for making his own parts to songs. Good player, I wish he was a little more simple, but he makes it sound good every time.

    Yeah I was really impressed with the sound of his TRX cymbals. I think they sound awesome especially for the price.

    That's not his personal kit. It's the kit that was set up for his thing on Drum Channel a few months back.

    A few things I noticed on this vid I thought was interesting. He has an Evans EC2 on the 14" FT and an Evans EC2 SST on the 16". If you listen to the around the world quarter note flams at the end, the attack on the two floor toms sound exactly the same to me. With good speakers or headphones you can hear the mic pick up the lower bottom end on the larger drum after the attack however. He also notes the 12" tom as being 12 x 10 and the snare being 14 x 5. I'm pretty certain these drum are actually 12 x 9 and 14 x 5.5. Then again, he spends his time playing the drums and I spend mine pouring over the DW website.

    I didn't care for that blue when I first started looking at finishes for this series, but I must say it has started to grow on me.

    I was in the UDrum shop last week; they have his old UDrum kit on a rack there, signed by Cobus and heading for sale on ebay. The TRX cymbals are signed and for sale in the store already.
