There have been tons of stacks out before. Sabian was marketing the MaxStacks in the early 2000s. They don't sound like claps though.Lol. Hammerax was out with their smaller, cheaper, and just as good (if not better, especially live) sounding stacks looong before Istanbul. Cool DIY though.
Thats why I mentioned only Hammerax which does sound like claps and sound better (much more volume and meat) in a live situation while at it.There have been tons of stacks out before. Sabian was marketing the MaxStacks in the early 2000s. They don't sound like claps though.
He did an unboxing video and review of it. It actually does sound pretty good.Cool project and I think it sounded as good as the Agop here, although for myself, I can't see a need for one.
No comments on the Vox kit? It pretty regularly gets maligned around here, but I thought it sounded pretty good (not $1800 worth of good though!)
Which Hammerax sounds like a clap? (And I'm asking honestly, not trying to be sarcastic) -- I've never found any of theirs to sound as convincing as the Clap Stack.Thats why I mentioned only Hammerax which does sound like claps and sound better (much more volume and meat) in a live situation while at it.
They still can be bought online btw. I saw some promo coming by online.
I never should have had sell mine
Hrmm... I've checked out a bunch of sound clips, with varying mic setups, and nothing has sounded like a clap the way the clap stack does. It sounds like a nice short white noise stack, but that's not the same as a clap. Listen to the Carter McLean / Japanese House video (I had the Crash Course. I think it was the 11”.
In real life it was a loud ass clap.
Where the clap stack really fades in a live situation, this one had the opposite (sometimes a bit too loud for acoustic gigs).
