A Korg Wave Drum, a Mandala, and an SPD-S.
No more fights with a guitar player who's too loud, or a bass player who wants to be a guitarist.
The drummer can now be numero uno.
the wave drum is so cool! i'm going to wait a few years to get it tho, so it wont be 600 dollars
Hmm, now I know what Pat Mastelotto was doing on ConstruKction of Light and Power to Believe II. Entertaining demo, Harry. Well done.
You really have your tech together ... looking at that setup all you need is a white coat and crazy hair to be a bona fide mad scientist
Free at last! me likee, Harry! ....
Or $900 if you live here.My Wave drum was $420 + tax. $461 landed to my front door.
Yes, it's a cool beastie. However, a snare drum only needs tuning, heads and snare; no electricity / power outlets or brain work required.This thing is simply "off the hook". Dare I say more sensitive than an acoustic drum. Depending on the patch you're in, mere pressure on the drum head will make it explode with sound. I could press on my snare 'til I'm blue (or red) in the face, and it won't make a peep.
Sorry Harry, but where there's a rat's nest of cables involved there's usually someone who goes MWUHAHAHAHA nearbyPlease don't think that's me....though I am bona fide crazy hair mad. And yes, you're right about Pat Mastelotto. He has/uses all this gear. Very well. I'm no where near as good...but getting there.
This looping caper is very cool. First time I saw it was a beatboxer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhBoR_tgXCI. I can never work out how people remember which knob will turn X off and Y back on. It's like a miraculous feat of memory to me.My loop station will go out to 4 minutes +, so plenty of time for me to trac. almost anything I want to. Then, a stroll over to the acoustic kit, and I can jam to whatever I just created/looped. An ultimate exercise in schizophrenia.
Harry,..Any suggestion .....headphone jack?
I respectfully disagree that the Wave drum represents the future of drumming for many reasons:
Time will tell if we will see version II, III or even IV of the Wave; I doubt this drum, in this configuration will be around for very long. That said, I liked the demo. I learned something new today; thanks for sharing. However, now I will go and play one of my hand made, wooden drums.
Well. I tend to not think in centuries. Probably safe to say, 340 years from now, acoustic drums (as we know them), will be passe as well....and we will all be "moot points".Just how far into the future are we thinking? I tend to think in centuries. Therefore the Wave drum is a moot point. Who will be using that in 2350?
Interesting idea. Will all tribes be technical? Will the djembe be electronic? The future is unknown. Could Baby Dodds have forseen blast beats?Well. I tend to not think in centuries. Probably safe to say, 340 years from now, acoustic drums (as we know them), will be passe as well....and we will all be "moot points".
