I hope the drummer likes where all his drums are positioned because you'd need a welding torch to make adjustments.
…or do they?
Now we've come full circle and you can program beats that will be played on acoustic drums. I found the nuance to be a little lacking in the performance.
Meinl keeps pushing the envelope with the evolution of their Slap Top Cajón drum. It's changed a fair amount since I saw them in 2003.
You could create a hexagonal grid of cymbals and really pack them in tightly. Don't ask me why you'd want to do that.
This seems to play like the rare (and expensive) Korg Wavedrum. Rather than triggering samples, it's processing the sound that the player is generating.
I'm not a drummer so I was never privy to the secret technique required for proper stick twirling. With a set of these I could infiltrate the world of drummers and they would be none the wiser.
All of the finished products that Schenll offers are 3D printed. This technology has gone from protyping to production pretty quickly.
Play percussive guitar technique without those pesky strings in the way.
With most tongue drums you're stuck with a specific tuning. Not so with the Sun Drum. Another of Valter's instruments, the aludu, makes an appearance toward the end of the video.
At least the drummer will be able to see and appreciate a stylish beater. These are more than a pretty face, Low Boy offers two different weights and a felt or leather face as standard options.
Four cajón drums would complete this dining room set nicely.
The BopPad is one of the cooler drum pads that I've seen. The response was excellent and McMillen knows their stuff when it comes to controller interfacing. This one is going on my shopping list.
The Tripstick kind of creates an acoustic delay by way of a balanced stick that bounces on the head. Changing the angle will change the speed of the bounces.
The KickStrap is a simple solution to the problem of drums wandering off while you're playing them.
Grooves work for all sorts of other things that require traction, why not drum sticks too?
What drummer wouldn't love to find a suction cup-mounted practice pad or lighted stick holder under the Christmas tree?
You can place these two-piece magnetic triggers just about anywhere: on heads, shells, or just about any surface. The software allows you to set up sound zones for mutiple triggers on a single drum.
This looks like Tommy Ramone playing an ELP song.
