OUR 'OTHER' DRUMS

This is the kit I use with band rehearsals and performances. I usually don't include the bongo's, they are crap and I barely use them anyway.
The kit is a Pearl Export series, with pinstripe heads on the bass and toms, and a remo ambassador on the snare. The cymbals are:
Paiste 302 14" hats and 20" ride
Zildjian 16" crash (not entirely sure what type)
Stagg 8" splash (not sure what type but it sounds awesome!)
Sabian B8 10" splash and 18" China (my own)

I also bring my own Tama Iron Cobra power glide pedal to rehearsals and gigs.
Sorry for the low-quality pic... don't have any better ones.

My tabla...admittedly, I don't really know how to play them properly. I'm going to find a teacher soon. They're just such a beautiful instrument(s).


A few of my instruments together: toy drum from China, temple blocks, odd cowbells, the tabla, shekere, and dumbek (which hasn't shown up well in this picture).
I play tabla, but have never studied the Ragas. I had a few lessons in Varanassi to get the basic techniques and then when I got home practiced, but to western rhythms. Its an incredible instrument and takes a lifetime and a bit more commitment than I can give to master them properly, but I have used them in bands and in recordings nevertheless

I also play djembe and darbuka, but more traditionally the djembe, it's a fantastic drum.

As for congas, I have no idea about the techniques used to play them but would love to learn, they seem incredibly involved... too many drums not enough spare time

I don' have any pics available right now, but I have a pair of LP aspire bongos, a "north african snare drum" I bought from a store in florida called Hunt's Art and Artifacts.(it's a ceramic type drum made with a shape similar to that of a djembe, but it has no strings or rim to tie down the head. The head[which I assume is calfskin] seems to be dried onto the shell, and attached under it is a pair of twinelike strings that act as snares in giving a neat sort of 'buzz'ing sound.) I also have a large irish drum that I know little about that my dad got from my grandmother, and an great old Leady vibraphone that I'm renting from my teacher, I believe it's about 90.

Whaaaaa??? You found that djembe at tj maxx? I'll have to go check out my local one. That looks like a decent djembe. According to Nutha....close knots = good djembe...

Can I ask how much $$ you spent on it???

thanks,

Here's a drum I got in Santa Fe. It's a native drum made out of a tree that had split into two trunks

And here's another native drum, I included my kit in the picture so you can get an idea of how huge this thing is.

Here's an assortment of most of my hand percussion.

From left to right it would be; a set of bongos, a tiny little conga, a set of australian clave like things, a tambourine, and a hand made ceramic doumbek (my favorite!)

And then those miniature congas by Hidalgo are amazing! They sound and feel like the real sized thing hehe

A frame drum, shaker, and tambourine hanging from the wall...

A small, lovely gong

Wind chimes that sound like some middle eastern key or something its nothing like american made chimes

you've probably heard of the roland handsonic before. great stuff (and its to the side in between my two kits so i can play it at the same time)

Agogo bells or something from africa. I wanna put them onto my kit too haha

A Triton, Karma, and Fantom... all have some sweet drum loops and stuff

and finally an mpc 4000 drum machine


I know this post is long haha so you can get rid of it or move it to a seperate thread if you want Nutha lol!
Very impressive. How long have you been collecting?
