Transfer Tommy, that Tommyland - an excellent album. One of my faworite last time.

Thank you,

Hey bro, thanks for writing! In answer to your questions- No, I have never played with Tommy live during a show... we've jammed together but not in front of people. I don't believe we will be visiting your country in the near future... we are wrapping up a 13 month tour and they are beginning to work on a new record soon. Hopefully the next time around! I'll tell T that you enjoy his new disc, as well. Peace! Here's a new photo from this past week! Enjoy!

hi steve, i've noticed that the whole of tommy's kit has triggers mounted, but they don't seem to be ddrum triggers, which one's are those. Also i've been planning to buy a set of ddrum triggers myself along with a roland moduel TD6, my question is, if i'm solely depending on ddrum triggers for my sound and no mics, how is the overall effect. Is there too much cross talk between the toms due to the triggers being mounted and how is the over all feel. What would you suggest. coz my band plays mostly covers that have some really awesome snare & kick sounds, which sometimes is not possible in a small setup, your inputs will be highly appriciated....thanks

Hey Steve, I just heard the interview with Harvey on CBC radio. Sounds like everybody made a great time out of a potentially nasty situation. And he mentioned you ("Steve-o") specifically as being a very cool and helpful guy.

I'm guessing this whole scenario has put a big grin on a lot of drummers' faces! Good stuff!

JUst A quick question. I was at a crue shiow in winipeg a few nights ago and the set list was an hour shorter than the last winnipeg show. They didnt even play too fast for love or primal scream or any new stuff... i mean it was a great show but i payed over 300 bucks for a few seats and felt a little pissed off... is there a reason for the shorter set?

R4 Speaker cabinets[very loud]) he plays on everything in the room-speakers, couch, table, etc. He does that about 10 minutes before the show until he is walked to the stage.

2)Past drummers I have done include: Shannon Leto- 30 Seconds To Mars(2002-03); Aaron Montgomery- TRAPT(2002-04); and then Tommy when they decided to do the reunion tour(Nov. 04). I also freelance out of S.I.R. Hollywood Drum Dept.

wow..its awesome to have you here
tommy lee by far is my fav. drummer of all time
i came to motley crue's show in Atlanta, Georgia last year when they had to cancel it because vince neil " tore a muscle in his leg" lol..and i was reallly dissapointed because they only played a few songs..and when they came back in march this year i got to go again..and Tommy def. made up for it.i got to sit on the far left of the arena so i had the perfect angle to watch him play..and that was all i was doing..i wasnt listening to vince or ne thing else
tell Tommy that the solo was awesome and that he has a hardcore fan in Atlanta

as far as jon farriss' kit goes, a little snare buzz is ok, but i usually only have a problem with the 12" roto tom. in regards to mufffling, nothing on the snare and toms. the kick drum has a DW pillow in the bottom. and that's it.

I was West Coast Marketing Specialist(Retail displays in stores, etc) for a short time in 2001. Learn as much as you can about all aspects of drum equipment and keep up with it. That's it. Good interpersonal skills are a big plus too. Hope that helps.

It was due to Tommy's injury... The set list returned to its original length after a couple of shows with replacement drummer Will Hunt.

Thanks to all you guys for the ideas. I just got back from Tommy's and we have decided on most aspects of the kit. It is going to be awesome! Watch for it on his upcoming show towards the end of the season!

I have a question about hardware.....

I am thinking about upgrading my rack.... and I know that you customized a rack for Tommy with PDP and Gibraltar stuff....

My question is which of the 2 would you suggest buying a rack from, as the base rack.... Thanks for taking the time to respond...

Hey Shane, I am going to say Pacific... they make a terrific starter pack with a bunch of clamps included, plus their pipes are stainless steel and they stood up alot better for me than the Gibaltar stuff did. I'm sure you'll find more value in one of the pacific sets than any of the Kaman stuff. No disrespect to them by any means... it's just my opinion.

On a separate note: I'm teching for Dave Lombardo and Slayer next week for their taping on the Henry Rollins Show on the iFC channel... check your local listings... :)

Lastly, Tommy has decided on the finish for the Supernova kit and the upcoming fall Motley kit... they're going to be sweet! Thanks to all of you guys for the input. Late!
The pic below is (l-r) T, Derek Whibley(Sum 41), Viggy(T's previous tech & my mentor/brother), and me.

Hey, Steve!
Are you using only one mic to pick up the sound of T's snare on gigs, or two (batter and snare sides), or maybe sumthing else?
And what you can advice me as a PROtech, should I use 2 or 1 mic is enuff for my 14x8" maple snare drum? I really have no idea, what it's like to pick up the sound with 1 mic only from the snare side? will it work well or not? Simply my batter head is high-pitched and the snare side is low, and I want to get a low/middle short, kinda shotgunblast sound in total.

Cant wait yer reply, tanx in advance, Max.

Hey Max, thanks for writing. To answer your questions: on T's live snare with Motley I use two Shure SM57s- one on top, one on the bottom directly in the middle about 4 inches from the head/snare wires... I haven't ever tried miking just the bottom of a snare, you need to mic the top to get the attack of the drum... In the studio, I like using an SM57 on top and a SM81 condenser mic underneath.., it grabs all the body and snare buzz quite well; and you don't have to do much to the EQ either. Hope that helps! Let me know your results!

Default Re: Steve Morrison - pro drum tech (Tommy Lee)

Thanx, Steve, it'll help a lot, cuz I have a gig tonite in our local St.Petersburg club, and they got a bunch of Shures SM57 (and/or SM58) there, so I'll ask about two of Shures on my snare! Kool, thank so much, once again!

Max.
