Re: My crazy drum kits!
The 28X9 was unruly sounding to say the least - it was originally a marching band drum. I had to muffle it with a lot of egg crate foam just so you could hear the rest of the kit. I never had to mike it at gigs - it was crazy loud. I've cut down a few bass drums to make smaller ones and the warmth of the tone always suffers. I'll do pretty much anything to a drum and there isn't much I haven't tried. My next experiment is going to be square drums with no heads. We'll see what happens...
