I’ve owned the Sabian Sound Kit for a little over a year now and have used it at home, but now I’m playing for an artist who wants the drums mic’d up for small club gigs, if for no other reason than to run the kick drum to the floor monitors and in ears. The kit does come with the two XLR...
If you’re a hired gun do you allow an artist to have a say in your sound? Say for instance you own multiple types of cymbals. You have a type you like more than others, but the guy who has hired you likes one of the others better because he feels it fits his music better. What would you say in a...
Got hired to play for a country/southern rock artist. The cymbals I currently own just didn’t sound the way I wanted for this gig, so I got some AAX’s to help handle the job.
14" AAX X-Celerator Hats
17" AAX X-Plosion Fast Crash
19" AAX X-Plosion Fast Crash
18” AAX X-Plosion Ozone

These bad boys just showed up! All B20 Centent Lad’s. 15 inch hats, 18 and 20 inch crashes, 18 inch Holy Crash, 21 inch ride and the complimentary 10 inch splash. Small company that produces some great cymbals!
I have absolutely nothing to do today and I’m 2 hours from Memphis. I’ve thought of going to check out Memphis Drum Shop since I’ve never taken a trip over there. For those who have visited what should I expect? What are some other places in the area to check out also?
I’ve gotta be honest, I wasn’t sure the custom kit I designed would come in. However I came home today to several boxes sitting on my carport.
There is still a box with an 18 inch floor tom sitting in UPS land, but the bulk of it is here.
