Unless he's got snare wires under that floor tom with the coated head.... but who knows?

Kind of like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3lxdMAZV1s

some of these remind me of teenage boys who won't wear a jacket when it's 30 degrees F outside. It's always better to be cool than practical

I can only imagine what setting up these cymbal "stands" entails...



And in the "why?" department...

Look closely... There's a Trick throw-off on that beast, by the bass drum hoop.

I just don't get why the snare has legs but the deeper-than-wide floor tom is awkwardly suspended...

What was that talk about sharing stage with lefties? I am a lefty. Suck it up right handed drummers who can always play anywhere 😂😂😂

I always have a hard time at jams or backlining gigs (which is why I rather bring my own as iím anal and a bit authistic about positioning and having my own space)

This was a setup I took from Karl Brazil. The big kick for more heavy prts and the smaller for lighter and triggered work.

Buddy Rich played a forward tilted snare, as well.

A lot of trad grip players do that I think.

Joe Letz, who drums for the industrial band Chombichrist, used to have an odd one. Three rack toms vertically lined up directly in front him.

Here's a clip of him playing that monstrosity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdOTkRllJi8
Seeing him play the first couple minutes of “La Villa Strangiato” or “Sunday, Bloody Sunday” would be an interesting watch.

Very unique setup. Seems to be working well for him.

Ha! And then they where knit hats in the summer! Being cool is hard sometimes.

I would do as many tom rolls and fills as I could the entire time.

My body is ready.

Good gawd, these monstrosities look like some overgrown microscopic alien virus.

Always thought Bill Bruford's kits were pretty unique, especially when he started integrating pads and such

Funny you mention Bill. I was checking out his website recently which has a great FAQ page (worth checking out on its own) where he talks about electronic drums and the reasons he stopped playing them:

Why did you give up playing electronic drums?

a) The excruciating amount of time needed to extract something interesting from a reluctant and unreliable group of disparate instruments played a part. The things only became interesting beyond their design capabilities, and when you intermarried them with other instruments and got them to talk to each other through MIDI. In the fourteen or fifteen years I was actively on board, I suppose I gave rise to no more than fourteen to fifteen compositions which were absolutely a function of electronic percussion, and whose charm arose uniquely from that instrument. At about one a year, thatís not a great output, given the time it took.

b) The complexity of the instruments caused the bottom to fall out of the market and the manufacturers were forced to cater for the home-entertainment market , where everything remains on preset one, and comes ready cooked.

c) Shipping costs, maintenance, and unreliability, all took their toll.

[quote=EhhSoCheap;1629444] and the reasons he stopped playing them:

Love how he is so specific about what he does, wants and NEEDS. Sad I should write this in the past tense actually...

But his answers make sense, and looking at the size of his electronic kit, I can easily imagine the pain of setting it up alone
