Keith Carlock w/ new Gretsch
 
Thought I would post this of Keith. Gorgeous cymbals and that great Gretsch Sound.

I must say that watching this video without sound is pretty funny.

Dunno, maybe the recording, I can't hear any difference between the Gretsches and the Yams he played. It's all much of a muchness and I say that as someone who's played both brands. It's how you play 'em

Ha, it's true he sounds about the same on the yamahas.

I love his playing but his bassdrum gets to me after a while.

That ride is frickin' massive, I wonder what it is?

Superb playing from Keith as usual, although the sound on that clip is not very good, I love the way he play these very intense grooves, and I like the open bass drum sound, it's more difficult to achieve the sound you want, but I prefer an open sound than a dry thud anytime.

Keith's kick patterns are very busy, playing around with lots of 16th notes, and sometimes it's overplayed, for sure, but it does sound good an complement his sound/style, the typical low end thud would not have the same effect.

Thats the problem with the industry in my opinion. there is one sound and the engineers seem to have it dialed in. Every advert for drums makes them all sound the same. I was just admiring his playing and the look of the kit and cymbals and was not trying to make any brand comparisons. As for the bass drum, it sure sound better than anything full of laundry and felt strips.

Wow.

Saw him a few years back with Steely Dan.

Incredible.

I saw him with Sting maybe 3 - 4 years ago in Kuala Lumpur. Great playing and extremely dynamic. His fills are like thunder.

On a separate note I thought that item 1) on Sting's drummer checklist would be to get one with a splash cymbal. But Keith did not use one that night. I didn't miss it or felt that this drumming was out of place although lot of songs had splash cymbals all over them in the original recording.

thx
