    Default Damage Poets

    Hey guys, I was waiting to post about this until I had more to say than just "I'm in a new band" so here it is.

    I joined a new band. We call ourselves Damage Poets. It's a four piece. Vocals-Tommy, Guitar- David, Bass- Kevin, Drums-me.

    We have recordings of practices but not much more. There is enough music for a 45 min set though. We recorded a drum track last night for one of the songs with a mic in front of the set. It came out fine and might do something with that temporarily. Will probably do some songs with a 4-track recorder in a couple weeks.

    What's kind of exciting is the set up I'm using for this band. I really like it so far. Much more compact than what I have been using for the last 26 years. Some of the changes 12" rack tom on snare stand, hanging 14" tom off cymbal stand, 5.5x14 snare and 2 crashes. For RDM I use a 13" rack, 16 and 18" floors, 6.5x14 snare and 3 crashes.

    This is the new configuration

    drums
    5.5x14 Yamaha copper snare
    12x11 Tama Artstar II tom
    14x13 Tama Artstar II tom
    24x18 Yamaha Turbo Tour bass drum

    hardware Tama, Yamaha, Mapex single pedal

    cymbals
    UFiP 17" Tiger crash
    UFiP 20" Tiger crash
    UFiP 21" Bionic ride
    UFiP 14" Bionic hats

    The Bionics (B20) sound amazing and the Tigers (B8) are explosive and quick.

    would like to see a pic of it if you can get one up. Sounds like a cool set-up.

    That looks great

    I will be changing the 14" tom soon to a clear. Probably the snare too to something else coated.

    hi guys, well our first show was successful, a lot of fun. Nice stage with good sound. We did about 40 min. Made some contacts with a couple other bands to do some shows together and the guy doing the booking at this club would like us back.

    Man I tell you, I'm having a lot of fun playing this set up. Loving the smaller sizes. I feel like I'm really in command of it. We got this video from the side. It's not bad. Sounds best with headphones.
