Yet they pull them out, ship them off, tune them up and somehow they all miraculously still sound just fine.but are they really storing all those sets with no protection between drums on the stacks?
Not really any point.Awesome video, but are they really storing all those sets with no protection between drums on the stacks? I can't imagine they don't have the budget to even get some cardboard between them.
You take offense far too easily lad. It wasn't a dig at you by any means.....moreso a general statement of how fearful many are of their kits whilst seemingly oblivious to the fact that we hit the bloody things with a stick to begin with.And I can hit my drums just fine, thank you.
My impression also. -- Take this opportunity and work on your mindset - it will help you throughout your life. (Experienced person speaking here ;-)You take offense far too easily lad.
Normally the backliners just provide the kit. The drummer's/band's own crew will do the rest of the set up. In cases where multiple bands are using the same backline kit, each drummer or his crew will tweak the set up between each set in order to tailor it to the individual.Does the backline provider have a tech that actually goes and specs the drummers set so everything is correct, like heights, snare and tom angles, etc?
A huge expense Bob. We have had a handful of high profile artists interested in what we're doing. Accordingly, we looked into costings, & for a company of our size, it's out of the question.I can see how it can be a large expense for a manufacturer who has lets say10 big time endorsed drummers who they supply multiple kits for in locations throughout the world.
It is upfront. But it can also save money because multiple endorsers end up using the same drum kit over time.I can see how it can be a large expense for a manufacturer who has lets say10 big time endorsed drummers who they supply multiple kits for in locations throughout the world.
This is why you see some names endorsing a small company early in their career, and them jumping to a bigger name when they get bigger gigs. Support on the road, or when traveling to far away recording locations does take precedence.Many higher profile artists regard global support structure & default publicity exposure as much higher priority considerations than the instruments themselves. It's just business - both ways. Further down the pecking order, a more rounded appraisal is the norm. Of course, there are exceptions to this.
