I thought it would be cool to do a 12,14,20 downbeat style in that patina finish Vukan did on my steel. I think it would be very ringo-esqzenghost said:I am surprised at how much the finish color selection has increased. Some really cool colors, though I'd be most interested in something subdued like a brown or copper. I can see some really neat potential combinations.
Can you do them in raw aluminum? Ok, silly question.oriollo said:Gonna try some red-ish patina too ...
Have yet to build a kit for myself so busy ...
I think it probably just comes down to what you are into and the way you tech/tune your drums. My approach when tuning my drums tends to lend a sound that doesn't ring for days. That is intentional. Both the live and studio settings I use my drums in, long complex overtones are a big problem when it comes to the mix and would just end up being gated. I felt like where I landed with the O's was kind of a moderate sustain that still had life but wouldn't be an issue in regards to creating issues between the drums.Cauldronics said:I like what I hear, but I'm also gonna be the lone dissenter for a minute.
I'll risk getting a little flack by mentioning that I like to hear more overtones in my toms and snare than what I heard in the video. The lack of overtones coming from much lauded dw kits that I tried made me buy a Yamaha Maple Custom kit in 1995. I'd heard so many great things about dw but the dw kits seemed to lack character and rawness. They bored me.
It could just be the recording technique with the close mic sound being more prevalent than the room and overheads. In fact, if there is a way to hear the overheads and room mic about 30% louder, the sound of the kit might show a little more. No one listens to their kit with an ear 2-3 inches from the batter heads while playing.
Also, while I think this kit sounds amazing, it comes off as a particular sound, not unlike the way fiberglass, acrylic or steel kits all have their own sound. In my mind that means less flexibility. If the Oriollo is more harmonically complex than what I'm hearing in the video, I'd like to hear it.
