Default Re: Virgil Donati

I've seen them live last Friday (and I'm still blown away), and while Virgil doesn't tune
his toms dead at all (his small toms are always rather open), but he certainly has a
rock sound to them. He uses an 18" floor tom, too, and that one sounds so deep!

Also: He plays VERY loud :). His sound fits him perfectly - if it fits the trio I think
that's down to personal taste. He did change some cymbals for the gig (Legacy ride),
but he's still very much on the rock side of things.
