    Tony mystery

    At 6:36 - anyone have any idea what that black thing on Tony's bass drum is? Almost looks like an xlr plug to me.

    Drums for Quick Gig

    This gets me by in tight spots: Pearl 8x20 rhythm traveler bass drum w/ snare & 12" DW piccolo tom; 18" ride & 13" hats + cowbell & jam block. (Sometimes add an LP compact conga if the situation warrants it.)
