View Full Version : Gavin harrison mark tree sound

Hi, I was wondering what cymbal he uses in this (http://www.drummerworld.com/Videos/gavinharrison2.html), It sounds like a mark tree. The one right in front of him, between his 2 first toms.

It would be better to ask Gavin himself by going to the "Drummer" section of the forum and to the thread holding his name. He'll be happy to help out.

I dont think its a mark tree, that is a set of bar chimes, correct? not a cymbal.
I read that wrong though, you said sounds like a mark tree, I dont really hear it, but you might be able to find it on a set up diagram on the internet.
in his thread I believe he mentions that it is a tree a friend made him that holds 5 cymbals he cut down from old Zildjian cymbals.
I'd like to hear more about it myself~
I want one!
just found this:

It's a custom piece that a friend of mine made. I designed it because it was a real problem to get 5 little cymbals all close together like that using standard cymbal boom arms. It looked a mess too.
So far the new arm has held up for 15 years now!!!
I think Pearl make something similar to it with a bar and little extensions and also Sabian do something for Jack DeJohnette

Edit: I think what you posted isint what i'm talking about.. Im talking about the small china looking cymbal right in front of him that goes "sprrouichh bling bling" :)
I'll try to ask In Gavin's thread

whats a mark tree?
sorry, yes I think I misunderstood which one you meant. I'm not sure what a mark tree is either.
That one sounds like a bigger chime or ice-bell type cymbal.
Hopefully we'll hear from G himself-
I can't seem to find a recent catalog of his gear

the question did get asked to gavin on his thread and he said it was another experiment of his (like the chimes). he cut down an 16" zildjian z crash to 8" and bent its edges up like a china
