I think EvenSteven owns the patent on that set up. (well at least on this forum )art said:I am playing with a C/W band that plays OLD country music and only use my Ludwig 20" Bass and WFL 57 snare, 20" A Zildjian ride, 13" K Zildjian hihat...
Anyone else using a set up like this?
That's a gorgeous set! Homemade kick?MonkeyGrass said:I like a bikini set for some small acoustic gigs I pick up from time to time. Talk about minimalist?
16x16 kick (Gretsch), 5.5x14 snare ('62 NOB Pioneer)
13" K/Z hats, 18" K Custom Ride
I use mostly multi-rods with 7A's on some of the more "rockin" tunes
I love this setup. So does the cat that hires me. Clean, EASY to set up and break down, and it keeps me from wanking on acoustic duo gigs. If their bass player shows up and we're going as 4pc, I'll add the 8x10 rack and 13x13 floor, and fly a 12" splash. But just two acoustics - it's the 2 pc version.
Eventually, I want a 5x10 popcorn snare w/a suspension mount and another tom mounting arm mounted on the kick so I don't have to carry a snare stand.
Actually, that's a factory Gretsch job. It's part of a 6x8, 8x10, 13x13 (floor) 16x16 (kick) Catalina Elite Jazz setup - the ones they discontinued and then went to the two piece lugs that are currently offered. I've seen lots of these kits in 12/14/18 configurations, never have seen another 8/10/13/16.AgDrumma07 said:That's a gorgeous set! Homemade kick?
