The purpose of this thread was from an historical point of view, I have seen some in the shops back then, but I've never played or heard any of these, so I just wanted to know how the sounded, and because they're a bit unothodox kits, it's worth talking a bit about them, whatever you like them or not, they're part of the history of the drum manufacturing.Nothing screams "hey look at me" more than these stupid looking things. If you can't find the sound you are looking for in round drums like the rest of us...play a guitar!
I was about to quote that video. And that's not his kit, it was made for the video due to the whole space shuttle look. So it's essentially mimed.They still make random appearances here and there. The last time I saw a Staccato kit was in Rammstein's "America" music video:
They certainly look distinctly different, but I can't say I'm a fan of the sound. This is admittedly based on only a few video and audio clips though, and I've never played them myself.
No need to feel sorry Tfit, it was a pretty ok comment.. ...and I wish I could play guitar!When I said "you" i didnt mean you personally, sorry about that.
Cool! So are we looking for a full sonic report in the new year?A friend of mine just got a complete set of North drums, I'm definitely going to try them out over my christmas break.
