It’s been a coupla weeks since I fouled up a thread with more pics of the same drum shit I always post. Better remedy that with a couple from the latest duo hit last night. Same rig, different day.

As I posted somewhere else, simply pulling these drums out of their bags makes me smile. They’ll be back at it tonight for a full band gig at a shitty dive bar, in the thriving methopolis of Oildale, CA. Anyone here who knows the Bakersfield area will get that one. 😁😵‍💫

The more I see that big center port, the more I want to give it a try. The tartan helps as well. Tugs at my highland heritage.

Am sure I have a spare reso kicking around. Time to try this on the 22" Club Custom.

Ports, especially large center ports, seem to get slammed pretty hard in the world of drum fora. I’ve heard it all… can’t tune, too lazy, any sound guy worth his salt, kills the sound, Buddy and Bonzo didn’t, blah blah blah. It really is a sound and feel all its own, and it’s definitely not for everyone or every style of music.

I primarily play soul/pop/R&B/light 70’s rock/70’&80’s country, or originals that borrow heavily from many of the same influences, so this sound works perfectly for what I’m doing. The tartan is an old wool stadium blanket (from approximately 60-70 years ago) and was a gift from my lovely lady, so it has sentimental value along with being a perfect muffling tool. Very easy to adjust depending on what I’m seeking to accomplish.

Also should note that I’m running a mic at every gig regardless of venue size, AND I’m running a triggered sound to layer with the main sound if I wish to add some boom. The triggered sound is actually a sample of this same bass drum, wide open with full front head. Best of all worlds for me and again, easily adjustable. I use the Roland TM-1, which I run through the app on my phone to dial in decay, volume and pitch of the triggered sound depending on what song we’re playing.

I finally gigged the "new" ludwig kit this weekend. I am in love with this thing now. Coated Emperors on all of the toms give a nice warm tone. The guys liked it too. After playing a 4 piece forever the extra rack tom made me rethink a lot of fills, it was tricky at times.
The stage area here looks funny lit up, they acually have a lighting system while we play so the furniture is hidden, it a cool stage area 3 steps up from the rest of the venue.

Awesome looking Ludwigs! I’m also particularly fond of the one cymbal + hi-hat cymbal setup. I’ve been running with that idea for the last several months and love it.

Thank you. Yeah, ive been using just the ride which i can crash as well for a while and it just simplifies things. I have a splash that ill add to the ride stand above the ride sometimes on a stacker rod. Once in a great while, outdoors ill add just one crash but its honestly been years since I have.

Hola dot comrades.

last weekend l got to enjoy three of my favorite pass times. Cycling, camping, and music.
One of my bandidos held a bit of a music fest out at his cabin on Hastings Lake. I drove out on Thursday to drop off my drums and camping gear, Friday It was a 45 km bike ride from my house to the lake. Saturday I did a 45 km timmies run to and from Tofield before the gig, then another 45 km for the return home on Sunday. Probably going to be the closest thing l get to a vacation this summer. Weather, roads, traffic, music, vibe, food, and beer were about as perfect as l could have hoped for.

After we get together for our post gig autopsy we will probably not get together musically until fall.

Have a great Summer one and all. Stay safe

Place ended up being pretty full as it is a popular place wiith GREAT food, and moderately good :cool: entertainment...

More gig pics from Ol’ Ryno. I feel like this is the only thread where I have anything to contribute. 🥴

Mid-week at an uppity winery in Paso Robles, CA. Beautiful scenery.

Next up was a shitty dive bar in Bakersfield. At least the lighting was cool. LOL. Bako peeps are always a great crowd. Salt of the earth folks.

Finally, yesterday’s wedding hit in San Juan Capistrano. A block away from the mission at an 180 year old historic place. Third different rig in as many hits. Fun to mix it up.
