Default New Kit Arrangement = New Approach

Out of either curiosity or masochism I bought a Tama Remote Hi Hat and set it up in the center of my kit (similar to Bill Bruford). It's been quite a lesson while getting used to it. I might be experiencing some gyrification. I'm hoping my left hand will improve, but at this time there's little evidence of that.

I recorded the kit, as seen, to the drum-less track Mr. JPA (attached). A few notes for the curious:
  • Tama Starclassic Bubinga. 10", 12" 14", 16" toms. 22" kick.
  • Toms running Evans G14 over Genera Reso heads.
  • Kick: Old style Evans EQ4 (with dry vent holes)
  • Tama SLP Classic Dry Aluminum snare with 1/2 Moon Gel, with stock head (Evans G1 coated).
  • Transatlantic Reverb from Rare Signals (on the snare & overhead tracks)
  • Paiste Cymbals: 17" fast crash, 15" ME hats, 22" ME ride, 20" PST-X
  • Stereo panning as wide as possible. Get those toms bouncing around the space.
I derail a few times. Be kind.

Oh, my! Where do I start?

The drums sound freakin' fantastic, with distinct tones from the toms, right-in-the-mix bass drum, snare pop (a little too dry for my tastes, but that's just me), and the cymbals were simply delicious.

The performance? I couldn't fault that if I were actually qualified to do so. The "derails" were so inconspicuous that if you hadn't cued me in to expect some, I would have never noticed. You really made that piece swing with the best of them, my friend.

I find no fault. Thanks for posting that hopping performance. Good on 'ya!

Thanks for the kind words, GeeDee!

My personal critique is that I got carried away near the end with hammering the cymbals a bit hard and they lose definition.

For anyone interested, the source of the drum-less tracks plus a chart is here. Lotsa fun to play along with!

I finally had some time to play & record Mr. JPA.

Video here.

Really great fun to play along with.

I'm still learning to use my left hand on those left toms. It may be years before I can lead with my left.

And the way my tom shakes from hi hat use, it may be time to get a rack system. :D

MP3 and video sound great to me.
I've used both cable hi hat (Yamaha) and center pedal (OffSet and Sleishman) for years.
And tend to bounce back and forth between traditional set-up and symmetrical. Nothing wrong, in my book, with a litter experimentation.
While I still have my Yamaha cable remote, it's out of commission with a broken cable. What I replaced it with is the DW 9500 Universal Remote hi hat that uses a drive shaft (similar to a slave double-pedal). Picked up one used, for $200, and it kills. An alternative to going to a rack. It's really stable, since it's a legless full length.
