    yamaha stage or tour?

    Think twice before getting the 800-series hardware: it’ll be heavy. I’ve just changed over to the Yamaha crosstown lightweight hardware and, as a sometimes gigging drummer, couldn’t be happier. Weight is overrated. dutch

    I don't trust myself

    The second track we did last week as we were experimenting with recording. Great song but not at all easy to play.. A few hiccups here and there, but nevertheless we were happy with results. Speeds up a bit towards the end, but not too much - the song gets a different dynamic when the sax comes...

    Last week's rehearsal

    Recently we started experimenting with some recording gear we have and last week recorded this song. It's not very polished (we've only played it a few times before), and especially towards the end it sort of falls apart a bit when the guitarist tries to loop, but I like the song and overall...

    Yamaha Hipgig

    I'm looking at buying a Yamaha Hipgig that is on offer locally, but am puzzled by the model... It is not the Rick Marotta signature model, but I can't find any documentation on this version. The bassdrum model ID is BD16HG, and the snare is SD12HG. Pictures below; can anyone help? Cheers, Dutch
