Re: Todd Sucherman here!
Thanks for the support! I'll just be happy to "place" so to speak.
Thanks as well. I really hope you dig it--and that it spurs cool ideas in your playing! Your feedback is always appreciated.
My pleasure, man.
I can't really give an opinion about electronics because I've never used one in the capacity of which you speak. I had (and still have) a ddrum3 rig which I used a lot in the 90s for jingle sessions. Those were great for that type of work but I always used real cymbals and hats with it.
Bottom line is-- if you have noise issues, you still have to play. Working on that kit would be better than nothing, right? How will it influence you playing? Hard to say as everyone is different. Will the samples bore you? Well, you get what you pay for. Get a nice one. What it WON'T help is your ride cymbal touch. You can't hit anything rubber and have your cymbal touch improved. There's no substitute for time on the actual instrument. But an electronic rig is the next best thing. I wish you luck!
