I'd love to hear the story behind the pizza box gig.Snare and hats, but I've done a pizza box and brushes once, and on more than a few times I've had to make do with a snare drum and brushes. I prefer bass drum, snare drum, ride and hats, and when I want to really go big, a 1up/1down with left and right side rides and hats.
Private party. A few folks showed up with acoustic guitars and all I had in my car was a stick bag with sticks, mallets and brushes. The brushes worked perfectly on the pizza box. Seriously, I doubt I could have gotten a better feel or more perfect projection from a real drum.I'd love to hear the story behind the pizza box gig.
