Re: Yamaha Drums

Great drums WB! And regarding explaining to your wife: Just let her know the formula for how many kits a person should have is: a + 1 (where a = # of kits you currently own). ;-)

In recent months I've taken to mic'ing my kit (6 pieces) with two overheads, a bass drum mic and a not-close snare mic (Glyn Johns style) and I absolutely love it. For lack of better words, it sounds...

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

A very thoughtful and useful thread (as usual) from you Andy. I actually just played a festival gig and was wondering about what such an event might require from an engineer. I listened to bands...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Thanks Neal and jbonzo. I'm completely satisfied with both the aesthetic and sonic results. The fundamental tone of the shell is much more pronounced and occupies a much more specific space in the...

Re: Yamaha Club Custom (2001) with a history

Sounds good!

I have a hammered bronze supra and you've inspired me to give one of Jack's head a go on it. Have you used That head on other drums?
