Default Re: NUTHA JASON'S kit with new cymbals.

Interesting 8.5 ride, how was this modified to give you a ride sound rather than a splashy sound. Is it like an isobell?

Default NUTHA JASON's kit with new additions...

got me a rototom and a tambourine now. i also raised my cymbals up much higher so i can see the girls in the audience. still sometimes missing the left crash as i am not used to it being up there.
basic specs: all cymbals are paiste 2002 except the far left splash which is a 6'' zildjian.
the drums are pearl blx with my own mods (internal mics and I.S.S mounts.) the high tom is a modified firecracker snare tuned up like a timbale - no lower valum etc. the rototom is a remo 8''.
all the toms work nicely together because not only do they decend in pitch but also warmth and depth. so you got a no-shell 8'' roto, then a small shelled one skinned 10'' wooden timbale, a 12'' power tom and a 16'' floor tom.
all the heads are aquarian.
j


what the audience saw last night (i'm setting up side on for a change)

internal micing ideas:



a cut down hihat i turned into a mini ride (center splash-like cymbal)



cheers

That kit is simply beautiful! your cymbals look (and probably sound) great. I like the ride alot and the crashes, china and splashes look just awesome! But my favorite part of all? The throne you got goin' there. Looks super comfy. I could fall asleep on that thing.

You also got some great pics. some of the ppl on this site dont know how to operate a camera... juuuusssst kidding!

PS good idea about the cymbal raising to check out the babes... i'll try that

I wondered if someone would try the power-thins. The power thins, IMO are a modernized cs black dot---one that works. I'd like to try them on maple drums.

i had an evans black rock head on the roto (that's what it came with from ebay) but it was not responsive and rather dead. the power thin rings out a lot which is what i wanted. if i roar around on my toms now it sounds very neal peart last roll on yyz.

davodi74, the stool was a pearl round one, but i wanted comfort because the last thinbg you want in a six hour practice is a sore butt. so i bought 2 sq metres of leopard print fauxfur and cut it into circles one was twice the diameter of the stool, the othere were all the same diameter as the stool. then i stacked them, sowed a little X in the middle to stop them slipping round, then i sowed an old bootlace to the rim of the big circle and just pulled it tight over the stool. i never have probelmes now with comfort or sweat (which i did also get from fake leather stools).
i put the china up so i could swipe it from underneath like john blackwell.

My 'Brutha from a Nutha Mutha',
Wow! Great web site, great songs and your set is beautiful.
I like my crashs higher, too, though I can't see the 'girls' much because of the lights.

aHAAAHAHAHAHAHAH. YES and i wouldn't mind having a bed spread like it as well. actually i was hoping to get a zebra pattern but i know it would be filthy by now. beige with dots actually covers just about any stain.

to help me aim for them when i'm drunk.
kidding. they are quite a retro design from aquarian. they provide a little dampening (i don't generally use any other muffling etc) but mainly they are very tough, like kevlar, and so the heads stay undamaged for months. the snare is covered with the same material and i have bashed it for a year and a half without loss of sound quality or damage. its more expensive then normal heads but lasts much longer and sounds great.

no jokes dave, it was your kit that made me try it, as much as watching the man (j Blackwell). and i love it up there. sweeping it from underneath is pure magical showmanship.

that's the cool thing about this forum. sharing ideas...making others think.
ta man.

That kit's truly stunning. Out of curiosity, have you ever played the White Horse pub in High Wycombe? I know the sound guy there quite well, he does most of the gigs.

no, we only ever play o'niels out there. i hate that gig. the audience are cool and the club is nice but it is so far from home that i only get to bed at 3:00 if i'm lucky (i live in south london).

we may be dropping it thankfully. our agent is negotiating our gig list for next year (we get a whole year at a time - lots of advanced notice for us)...and we may take a few residency gigs in central london (which will be sweet). i'm playing in milton keynes this saturday and that is a huge shlep as well. be home at 4:00 if the roads aren't too iced up.

no it was the top part of a 14'' 2002 hihat that had a crack. i bought it from ebay because i wanted the bottom part to make a heavy new combination. then i looked at the broken top and wondered what it would sound like if i cut it down. it looks like a splash but it is so thick it doesn't wash at all, it pings like a ride and the bell, although quite small sings out like a real ride. so i decided to christen it the 8.5 incj mini ride. maybe paiste will use it as a proto type one day. did you hear it in my recording at 1:40 here?

i was. the first little ruff of the pattern was near the edge and i was holding it with my left hand then the ding part was near the bell and unmuffled.

this is often how people play patterns on a triangle and so i did the same.

Thanks. its a 22'' heavy ride. the kit is very ergonomic interms of angle and position. i've taken some advice from billy ward's video as well.

very comfortable. the hats are a combination: on the bottom is a bottom hat of a 2002 medium. on top is the bottom of a black label 2002 rock hat.

thats sort of the set-up i hav now , drum wise i mean. (God if i had money to buy all those cymbals!) I recentl found the set-up that im going to keep, but i was thinking that if i eva had to play an xtremly fast song with alot of tom work in it, than i would set it bak up the 'standard" way. I was wonderering if u eva hav ne trouble going from ur mounted toms to ur floor tom? Can u change down to ur floor tom fast? Do u get used to it?

absolutely. the biggest thing was putting the ride in the right place. it has to be far back enough and low down so that it doesn't get hit by accident particularly when going from low tom to mid tom. i love the way a rack lets you micro adjust stuff until its is just right. if everything is in place then there is no problem you get used to the gap quickly and now when i play other kits i'm like: 'heck this ride is so far over and what am i supposed to do with this extra tom?'
plus less of the audience can see you with a wall of toms.

Actually I found it the other night on:

You're gallery 112. I was spinning through all the drum sets and I was like "wait...that looks familiar!" and surely enough, Jason from the UK and his band SWARM. hehe.
