Default Mike Mangini, Vater Slip Nut Demo

Thought you might like to see Mike's new kit, and a little of his playing.

Cool.
He's a very nice guy, great sense of humor.
His drumming is pretty good too I suppose.

Anyone else catch the ZBT hats?
Interesting choice of Primary/Secondary/Tertiary Hi-hats...

Yeah, I saw that too.
If the sound works within everything else, why not?

Being real inexpensive is an extra bonus!

Dave Grohl used a 24" ZHT ride with TCV. I thought that was interesting.

I wonder if he'll do a video explaing the rest of his mamoth kit?

As for the ZBT's I've always liked the sound of those "lower" quality hats, such as the B8's. For whatever reason they sound great! (And I'm sure the ZBT's almost the exact same as Sabian B8.)

Interesting vid. I don't use those Slick Nuts but they are nice.

Cool combo with the Aquarian Cymbal springs that he had to leave the name out of during his Vater Video.

Peculiar placement for a small snare, having it up front in the rack tom position, but Mangini has so much technique, he could probably set his kit up an inch off the floor and still play well.

Re: Those ZBT hats. I can see why a lot of people would play those. I had a pair of ZXT Rock hats that I loved to use for loud rock. They were sort of Paiste like. Bright, cutting and sounded great.

ZBTs, B8s or any other low-line series can sound good at times and for specific applications, especially when mic'd live. I don't own any because I buy and resell, but I recently heard a live show and thought the drummers ride fit perfectly in a heavy rock setting only to find out it was a thrashed B8. I think a great number of drummers put brand and form well ahead of function too often. Sometimes cheap cymbals work; sometimes they don't. But, I would be willing to bet they could work more often than not.

Some inexpensive cymbals work for hats and rides, but rarely for crashes. At least that is what I have found.

Thanks for the link to YouTube. I really enjoyed that. I am anxious to hear the new Dream Theater album. Peace and goodwill.
