still that did look like his cymbal set up,and not a back line kit.
Maybe someone else on the bill was a Yamaha endorser so no gaff tape for Vinnie. Lot of set up on Herbie's side for a fly in though. How many iPads does it take?
My guess is that backline was used, and - although Ludwig has distribution in South America - there probably wasn't a Ludwig kit available.
Vinnie's always adored Ludwig, it's unlikely he'd leave so quickly.
Id say Bermuda is spot-on here.
This happens often, as it isnt always possible to get the artists everything they nee
d in time, kits included!
i think that night only for Herbie Hancock perform, so the kit just for Vinnie; hardware from dw like cymbal and hihat stand and etc, ... so, why Vinnie choose to using yamaha kit than other kit like dw because Vinnie one of endorser of dw (hardware), or why he didn't to remove yamaha brand or request event organizer to do that or request for change "yamaha" drum head with another drum head?
