I used to use one of those and I made my own bracket to save weight and bulk. See the thread on my set below and also http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=23501

thanx guys, i greatly appreciate it. currently im working in an instrumental prog trio. for rehearsal purposes i use a dx extreme. i would rather use an acoustic kit but the advantages of an electro kit are great. our low practice volume makes it a bit easier to tighten things (rolls etc) up in our music. for one of our tracks i used a tambourine triggered with my left foot for a nice polyrhythm, and want to duplicate it when we play live on my acoustic kit. thanx for the input!

I am already doing this.


I use a Rhythm Tech DST aspecial beater made by Regal Tip and a bracket made by Meinl. I will try to get more specific later, if I have time.

Okay,


Here are some links for you to look at:

http://www.interstatemusic.com/webap...ctId=900017626

http://www.interstatemusic.com/webap...oductId=120317

This is the main stuff and just a Rhythm Tech Drum Set Tambourine. And the thing is that Tambourine is a make or break insrument and what I mean is that the judicious use of it can make a song just as the misuse of it can just destroy a sog.

I use the Meinl pedal mount too, it works well for cowbells, tambourines and little tambourim drums; it even worked quite well with a little piccolo snare.

Okay,

and this week I bought another Black Beauty Cowbell (you know....the Bruce Dickinson model) and a jam block as I have been working the left foot clave. This was the result of needing the clave pattern on a pop latin Christmas song but with no hands by any one to play the part. Everything was going well until I got to playing the cascara rhythm on a cowbell and the 3:2 clave part with the left foot. It's good to have goals!

I never leave home without my left foot tambo ( DW7000, LP attachment, LP tambo ).

I am going to replace my left foot fx pedal with a Dualist so as to acquire those sweet 16nth note tambo patterns that sound sooooo cool!!!

Hi,

you can do this but in my opinion it would make more sense to put a tambourine onto the hihatstand and make a cowbell or a woodblock in front of the pedal.
