Default 3 fun kits in 1 thread

Hi everybody,

Maybe you remember a thread from last year with my drama monster kit, http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=47850.

That was really fun, but this year's drama project was even more fun. We had a band with 5 guitar/bass players, a violin player, a piano player, and 3 drummers :-)

The shows were in the first week of march, and I made some pics of the drums with the photographers camera and I finally got the pics.

I will try to list the specs:

My kit (Gretsch catalina maple)

Drums:
22 x 18 Bass
14 x 6 Snare
10 x 8 tom
12 x 9 tom
14 x 14 floor
16 x 16 floor

Cymbals:
20" paiste alpha full ride
14" paiste alpha medium hats
16" paiste alpha crash (old series)
8" paiste alpha thin splash
17" masterwork custom crash
Magic Brass cup chime (cut down from a 18" crash/ride)
Magic Brass I don't know how to call it (cut down from a 14" hi hat bottom)

Heads:
Remo Emperors over stock resos on toms
Evans Powercenter reverse dot over stock reso on snare
stock heads on kick (now replaced by Remo Powersonic)

Hardware:
Mostly Gibraltar 5600 series
The Magic brass effects are on a Basics hi hat stand
DW 4000 double pedal
Self made stick holder on hi hat stand

Dutchdrummer's kit (he is a member of this forum, and a classmate of me)
Sonor 1007 and Roland TD-9 KS and percussion


I played 1 or 2 songs every show on this kit, it was fun, but I couldn't get very comfortable on this.

Drums:
20 x 17,5 Bass
14 x 5,5 Snare
10 x 8 tom
12 x 9 tom
14 x 14 floor

Cymbals:
20" Masterwork Troy Ride
14" Masterwork Troy Hats
16" Masterwork Troy Crash
8" Masterwork Custom Splash
16" Paiste 101 Crash
18" Paiste 2000 sound reflection crash

Percussion
10" piccolo tom (mine)
Supercussion microtom
wooden agogo things
beatring
cowbell
flexatone

Electronics:
Roland TD-9 KS

Hardware:
Different cymbal stands
Sonor 200 hi hat stand
Sonor 200 pedal
Sonor 200 snare stand
Pearl stick table
LP Percussion bar

Tama Hi hat stand (don't know what type)
Tama IC jr. pedal
Roland guitar amp for the electronics

Oil drum setup
The third drummer had an Oil drum setup.
That created some real nice effects, and a lots of noise, as it should be :-)
We had 3 Texaco oil barrels, and my Gibraltar Prowler pedal with my old Tama beater.

I think this was all.

That would have been one hell of a jam session! How is it with more than one drummer?

I forgot one quite important thing.

We played Shakespeare's MacBeth. The setting was a soup factory. The band was the research department. Our "big experiment" was the Drumbone. We made this ourselves, and it sounded quite good.

This is wonderful! Love your pics.

I don't know if anyone else in the forum has played with two drummers, but it's a wonderful learning experience. I grew up jamming with my dad (guitarist) and all of his guitar friends (and their really groovy drummer) playing old stuff, anything between Cream, ACDC, and Robin Trower, etc...

When I started playing drums, we would set my kit up facing his, and there's NOTHING like sitting in with a great drummer, and working to make your grooves fit hand in hand! (Plus I learned a ton of really important stuff from him!)

It was great to play with more drummers, especially combining the acoustic drums with te electronics and the oil drums, and then some guitar, bass, piano and violin. I think this was a quite unique band, although, Neal Morse had this sort of band on his Testimony tour: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHc28zmb2Gc. Or does percussion not count as a second drummer??

Haha, love your reply :P
I COULD easily get comfortable though :D

The experience of drumming with more than 1 was really great indeed !

Thanks mrbling,

haha, I had the same problem, I play metal too, and instead of cracking someone else's gear, I have cracked a lot of my own low quality cymbals. I bought the Masterwork crash a few days before the shows and I really like it, and it's still in one piece :D

I have another thing to show here.
Before the show, when the people came in, we played outside with the whole band on trash cans, oil barrels and stuff. We made a video somewhere in january during a rehearsal during the open door day of our school: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njAdizQQs5Q

This was all improvisation. We made a recording that day too, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NL2j...eature=related

The bassdrum sounding thing is a trash can with a pillow cover, played with tympany sticks :) That was the most fun instrument we used :D
