    Default Electronic drums in Pit Orchestras

    Anyone had any experience using pro e-drum kits in pit orchestras? Bad idea? I've got an upcoming community gig doing Godspell and was planning on experimenting. Bringing a couple of real cymbals though.

    Electronic drums are spawned from the pits of Hell. . .so I guess they would be at home in pits of any kind. . .
    And the trees are all kept equal by hatchet, axe, and saw. . .

    Oh that's funny. LOL

    Jim, I don't have pit experience but I have had experience playing electronic drumkits live. So much of it depends on how the external mix is controlled. E-drumsets are a whole different animal and they're harder to mix out front. You need a sound guy that really knows what he's doing and can work with you on the feeds. I would make sure there's plenty of time to set up and experient a little before the actual live show. See if you can do some practice runs in rehearsals to allow yourself time to dial it in and allow the sound guy to get used to them. I wouldn't just take them in there cold. You could be setting yourself up for disaster.

    In the last 3 years I have seen Jesus Christ Superstar, Sunset Boulevard, and Movin' Out. All 3 used V-Drums in the pit. It's probably great for the other musicians sitting a foot away from the drummer.
