Default Re: Show us your tiny kits

The mini e-kit has helped me a lot because it is a practice pad that I feel like playing because it isn't boring.
It has been great for my Jazz ride patterns.
I use heavy Vater Jazz sticks on the rubber cymbal pads and I spang-a-lang as fast as I can using just my fingers to control the stick.
The rubber cymbal pads have half the bounce of a heavy dark jazz ride cymbal.
It is like lifting weights with your fingers. My whole arm starts to burn in just a few moments.
I am a lefty that plays righty so my ride hand is weak compared to my comp hand.
I can do almost anything with my left hand on the snare.
I kind of like old drums:)
