24×14.

Ever since I sold the PDP Maples I've been missing the 24" kick. Finally found a nice set and brought them to a (now very rare) gig and yes I love it.  The room was big but very reflective so they put up a shield in front of me with no mics. LoL it was a loud wash.

Still breathing

Just super busy that's all. Has the chance to jam with a group of African worshippers and man they just have rhythm in them. I was asked to teach their young drummer to play contemporary music. And I got schooled. Hard. Made me chuckle to see these lot of very rhythmic individuals trying to express themselves in a foreign way (soft rock). I taught them to see the songs in sections and be mindful about intensity and after a while they broke into a jam in their own accents and time signatures and it was so tight. All the kids just APPEARED and somehow each holding an Instrument or clapping or dancing in sync. My Asian blood can't comprehend .  Above is a picture of them dancing and jamming and me being in the middle yet completely out of the loop.

Cocktail drums – first gig

8x5 snare , 10x5 tom, 15x24 bass, 10" hihats, 15" crashride. Worked pretty well for my friend's wedding yesterday. The wooden church acoustics certainly helped. The bass sounded especially good, high ceilings ftw. Right leg took some getting used to. image image image The 3 buckle still holding up well. It's good that everything fits inside a hockey bag. Fun fact : The modification to the drum was done with help from the groom's dad last year. Thanks Uncle Mok!
