I've seen those before, but I have no idea what brand they are.

I've seen a lot of crazy drums but never anything like those.

Those are either North or Staccato drums very big in the 70's, can't. tell without a close-up through. Bonham jammed a set of Staccato's back then not on tour or endorced just messed around with one.

I think both the North and Staccato Drums were fiberglass with the bottom end turned out towards the audience. These are kind of like kettle drums where the bottom is sealed. You really can't hear them well. Fiberglass drums are loud so this defeats the purpose.They're some pretty funky looking drums though.

What were you doing watching that video, Ken? ; ) Staccato drums, I thought were the ones that looked like melting tubular funnels. These look like half boiled eggs.

Did you notice that all the fills played by the drummer were on the snare, never on the eggs..errr toms?

They're not Staccato. These have a timpani style bottom from what I can see. I've no knowledge of North drums, but I have gigged a set of Staccato in canary yellow back in the day.

Gotta love the Reverend. Very funky drums, hey if they work they work. On a side note there is famous Al Green song you all know I'm sure; "Lets Stay Together" which has that funky tom sound, turns out that it came from a detuned conga. If it works use it I guess.

I waited and waited to hear those toms. He does play a quarter note a few toms on the right mounted tom and you can't really hear it. I don't now what they did with those Soul Train performances, and how much of the music was actually piped in. Maybe the kit was all for show.

You tube has become such a resource. I've been reading Daniel Glass and listening to a lot of old school soul and R&B since we were talking about its connection to Smooth Jazz.

Here's Chad Smith playing on a set of those bubble drums earlier this year. Sadly, he never hits the toms a single time, so we don't get to hear what the sound like.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4O7hBNaiMm0

Also notice the extremely wobbly hihat stand and the crash that slowly takes a dive throughout the performance. In addition to that, his snares seem to suddenly turn themselves off at some point. And the massive white afro wig, of course :-)

edit: Woop, my bad. He hits a tom at 4:01.

Alright, I've cracked this DaVinci code.

I zoomed in between the legs of the lady.

and I detected the word MOLECULE.

So voila!! A quick Google threw this up:

So what you're really saying is that while staring at that area, you happened to see the logo on the kick drum, right? :-)

yuck. thats all i can say about the sound of these drums, i listened to the samples one the molecules website, my export kit sounded better than those things. they look cool i guess but why buy them? and i would think they'd be really expensive

Haha love the look of the drums but the woman looks like a Barbie doll and her shoes look like hell to me :-P

From the vids I've seen the Molecules sound doesn't seem so great ... and they look as though they'd be heavy would need huge cases. Might stick with my RTs ...
