yeah, that'll be my primary concern when we hit the road again.
As few trips back and forth as possible!
I've been getting better at it, but it's still a bit of a pain

Thanks, Joshua! I appreciate the input~ I've scaled the kit down a bit since, but I've tried just about every pad, module and trigger out there- it was a fun process!
Keep me posted on yours, I'd love to see it.

I have to replace the sensor cones in the Roland V pads now and then, makes a big difference.



Here's my newest concoction;

I think the angle may be deceiving- those are Zildjian 13" newbeats, and that's a 22" Zildj ride. They're not particularly small, but we liked the sound better than the 14" Sabians.

Can't wait to get my custom TurkMaster 13"s in there next time...

Wow. Great pic. How did you achieve such quality and colours?

You have some great kits, M. I love the e-kit. Always have. I like the finish on the acoustics, too!

I was too lazy to change the heads and clean the cymbals, so I photoshopped the levels to darken it up a bit, and brought up the saturation on the color. Everything's pretty much the same color, it's just a little less intense in person.
I loves my raw ride though- that thing could kill somebody!

I need a taller ladder though, I can't fit everything in frame

The new setup is nice! It's totally symetrical and that's what I like:)

thanks man, I appreciate that a lot.
I know there are folks that don't care for Ekits, and it means a lot when they're able to look past it for the sake of the music. Plus, I've put a lot of time and money into getting the most out of the technology available so as to blur the line between A's and E's.
Also, it allows me to be able to contribute a little more beyond just the rhythms... but they have their pros and cons, I suppose- like all gear.

that said, I am really looking forward to going acoustic on the next tour (and we record with acoustics, of course!)

Cool Myspace page, man- I dig it! Nice Tony Royster Jr video, he was one scary kid!

No Problem, I must admit I do some acoustic shows with my singer and he makes me play an electronic kit, so I don't mind that but when he thinks it works with our band that's what drives me nuts! Love the green satin wrap as well I have the peacock satin wrapp so tochae!

cool-
your wraps look awesome in the Myspace pics.
I love how that stuff reacts to stage lights- it's quite a show!
