Check it out.. this ain't no backline kit
...and 4 are Fender tube amps!Sounds great, though. Also, I love the wall of amps, all on chairs, behind the guys in front. I count 6.
Cool. Thanks for the heads up on that documentary. I'm going to watch the hell out of that.I've got a 28" Zildjian ride. Cool to see something like it in actual use. I've heard that Stan Kenton (or was it Woody Herman?) favored having his drummers use big rides like that.
At the beginning they mention that these former members of Bob Wills group traveled from all corners of the country to be there. The drummer must have felt that that cymbal was an important part of the band's (or his) sound to lug it any distance. His hi-hat cymbals look to be plenty big as well, 16's perhaps.
Old country is not my thing but I much prefer it to the modern stuff and I thoroughly enjoyed this video as well as the recent Ken Burns documentary.
