No, I don't think so. They did have a more one-dimensional sound though.Did you think they were louder than wood-based ply drums when you played them?
I bought a djembe a few weeks ago with a new band. The new band exploded into a million pieces the next week. Now? I have a djembe in my basement.Someone mentioned a djembe - I’ve had one for a few years and finally used it for a paid gig last weekend. Due to covid restrictions, a trio I’m in performed as two acoustic guitars with percussion. I sat in a cajon and played djembe, plus some tambourine and vocals. Slightly uncomfortable, but it worked and I got paid!
Well heck then. Maybe I was confusing “loud” with “sustain” which is totally possible. Ears can be tricky. For example, so many people (e.g. fellow band members) complained for years about how loud my cymbals were. Once I got some lower-pitched cymbals, they loved them. While I believe them to be the same volume, they are a heck of a lot less shrill and much more warm and lower pitched.No, I don't think so. They did have a more one-dimensional sound though.
I'm pretty sure that Vinnie Colaiuta used them on the Gino Vannelli Nightwalker record (bottom heads removed, with mics stuck up inside).
For some reason I love everything about this post. The auto correct on my way! and the use of lavish. I want a cowbell that sounds just right, but I feel like generic or something when I play them, like they're a little cheesy to me for some reason, yet they sound great.Timbales, roto-tOn my way! And/or octobans. Will happen one day but no real point at the moment. Not playing any gigs where I could get away with a lavish set up.
Really? A 22” K Light Ride is my main cymbal - I use it for everything. It’s a great wash merseybeat cymbal.To be honest, light jazzy ride cymbals. I love them, but I'm not playing too many jazz gigs these days. Even my gong gets more use than the Agop Signature ride I've got, but it's the most wonderful light, dark, complex ride I've ever played.
Haha I didn’t even spot that autocorrect. I have a cowbell and I love it (nothing fancy just a big standard LP). But it’s definitely a matter of trying to find interesting ways to use it or you just end up sounding like a Blue Oyster Cult parody. They do show up on a surprising number of recordings though.For some reason I love everything about this post. The auto correct on my way! and the use of lavish.

I must go back to Memphis now. This video is almost exactly what I want. Do you think they would let me punch the gong?I thought these were stupid until I watched this video.
What an incredible experience.
A giant gong. They look really cool, and I have a desire to put on a boxing glove and punch it square in the face. Then I can stand fully enveloped in its sonic awesomness.
