    Default 9 Toms, 2 snares, what the hell was I thinking?




    I've been using the PDP Concept pedal for a couple of days. It feels pretty good. Tonight I'm going to go back to the Speed Cobra and see what it feels like.

    Your drums all sound so good Rick. You are a master to bang away on 9 toms and 2 snares. You got the old Ludwigs sounding great man. I wish I could play like you but then I don't have the experience that you have. Always enjoy watching at work you make it look so easy. Do your neighbours hear you at all. Do you drive the girlfriend crazy playing in the basement. Just curious cause you got to be loud.

    The neighbors don't hear it at all.

    The drums are right below where my GF sits to watch TV. Somehow she deals with it.

    As for the 9 toms and 2 snares, I'll leave them like that for a couple of days and then go back to my usual set-up.

    Thanks jgraham but no thank you. I am pretty shy about my playing and really don't have the equipment to tape or record. Just look at Rick and figure that I am probably 30% of his ability I always been camera shy so it will never happen but thanks for the compliments .

    I can tell you in my past experiences here that if you post a vid you may get some constructive feedback and everyone is very supportive. Nobody's intent here is to flame you and we all offer criticism in order to help each other out. I haven't been on for a while until the last week or so but I recall everyone on here just wanting to help out. I assume it's still the same from the posts I've read since being back.

    And to the OP great job man. Idk what I would do with that many drums. A 5 piece is sometimes more than I can handle..

    It's still the same way topdog. We just got rid of the really bad drummers, they now sleep with Luca Brasi.


    Thanks topdog. That set-up is just something I throw together every couple of months for fun. It's wild have all those drums to hit.

    In my gigging days, most of the time it was a 1 up, 2 down set-up.

    Yeah, sometimes, but I don't miss all the BS that surrounds it.
