yeah, I think that's it. don't know why but it looked like Premier APK lugs to me that night... come to think of it I thought Tama for a second too.

interesting... 12 lug steel snare...

I was actually hoping to see and hear his HLD590 or Ocheltree up close but was not to be... :)

saw Volto again last night. kick ass show as usual.

Danny was using what looked like to me a 6 x 14 artist bronze SD.

first time for me to see him playing anything then a deeper 8 x14 SD. I was a bit thrown and excited to see how it would do in the setting of their music.
surprisingly deep sounding snare. deeper then size would hint.

he also went dual 24" instead of the usual 22" and 24" mix, regular head instead of mesh. bass drum's tone was so deep, it got drounded out by the bass.

killer show.

they said they'll be playing with Philm on the 24th at the slidebar in fullerton. free show to boot.
Danny and Dave on the same stage... this could be epic!

Does anybody know exactly what components make up his center stand? He's got this amazing component on his kit, a heavy-duty double tom stand, with some sort of double cymbal boom attachment, and a remote hi-hat hookup that fits above in line with the roto toms he has centered in front of his snare. I'm interested in making that same sort of stand.

It's an old Sonor HLZ 5288 double stand from the Signature series.
It has a Z 5540b adapter attached that gives the possibility of using 5 Sonor ratchet arms. He's using two telescoping boom arms (for the crashes) and three multi-holders, two to hold tom mics (or rototoms) and one to hold a Pearl RH-2000 cable-hat.

I didn't really get into tool until about a year ago and now they are definitely one of my favorite bands and Danny is definitely my favorite drummer at the moment. His drumming in Ticks and Leeches sticks out the most to me...really an amazing drummer.

Just saw Tool tonight in SF. They opened with a cover of No Quarter(!) and made a 15 min jam out of Opiate. Danny even had a drum solo! His playing was just phenomenal. He plays with such solid timing and skill, it is ridiculous. I love how he hits so hard when needed but has plenty of dynamics even in a very loud concert setting. Danny, you rock.

I'm so jealous of you lol. I would love to see Tool. I think I watched that solo you're talking about on youtube recently.
 
Danny is next on my list of drummers to see live. Always knew he was great but really started digging his playing and sound lately. I've heard you can feel his bronze Sonors from outside an indoor venue.

I'm surprised that I couldn't find any posts about Tool's latest release, "Fear Inoculum", after there 13-year hiatus.
IMHO, this is a much more progressive album in comparison to the more alt-metal of previous Tool albums.
Much of the album feels like the "Danny Carey Experience" as his percussion chops are heavily featured front and center.
"Chocolate Chip Trip" is basically a 4:48 drum solo.

I've been listening to that album A LOT. I dig it for sure. Not sure if he's simply not very popular here? This latest album certainly isn't as heavy as the previous. I'm glad though. I'm older and not into the heavy heavy stuff like I used to be.

I like Tool but in my opinion they went way, way, too long between albums. I know that the album has done well and that DC is as fearsome a drummer as ever but for me personally, I just lost interest.

I'm sure I'm in the minority, however.

I'm honestly surprised it actually came to fruition. They all had their other stuff going on. And that definitely is a HUGE amount of time for a band to lay stagnant and then make a new album. And it's good. It's different. Like any other band that lasts 20 years +, they tend to "soften" some? I think that's fair. Voices wain, arthritis, whatever the cause. . .maybe it's just maturity.

Just saw them last month and what a show! Total perfection live from the whole band. Danny's playing was beyond words...

What kind o' venue? I'd love to seem them in a smaller type setting. I've never seen them. They play all the old standard favorites?

this guy is the greatest for me. The way he plays and uses his technique and how he has improved sice the first album of tool to the last. And how he plays in the band Volto! ( seen them live,, wow)
His playing is based a lot on the feelin, a more emotional way of drumming. He can take his mind to a unique place and he can intepret his ideas and thoughts to us, as well as he can cause a reaction on every one of us drummers or musicians.
How his drumset is placed percectly with a mathematician, followin the "circle theory" mixed with the "golden proportion" mixed with a theory called " the theory of the equator".
He has no boundaries, he is really creative .
He has been a great inspiration, at least for me.
post your thoughts on this fella

I love Danny Carey's drumming. Mostly because I think his style is really really different, refreshing, unique and innovative. His use of time signatures and out of the ordinary poly rhythms that he comes up with are crazy! He's a musical mathematician mastermind! His drumming in Tool songs has such a tribe like feel to it which makes me feel excited and intrigued to carry on listening. I don't think there is any drummer quite like him!

That intro to 'Forty six and 2'

Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. My bro hooked me up - he got tickets through his work, someone couldn't make it so I got the call and they ended up being in a VIP suite. On top of that, it was the day before my birthday. Their set was a good mix across their catalog, a little something from each album.

Going to see Danny and Tool tonight in ATL.
Rumors on Reddit that Tool soundchecked "7empest" at their last 3 shows but did not play it live.
Coming off of their Grammy win for the song, I am hoping they play "7empest" live for the first time ever.

Enjoy!! It will be a stellar show in any case.
