shortly after the 10″ and 12″ super-flat acrylic snares, i got hooked on flat drums entirely.
so between summer 2007 and spring 2008, i made a whole stack of acrylic drums, about 9 in total.
about the suspension system and rack i should maybe talk in „technology“ at some point.
here’s a glimpse of what one set-up looked like:
from the top, it is hard to tell the depth, right? it’s 14 x 2.5″ snare, 10×2, 12×2.5 and 14×3 toms, 20×8 kick.
again, i got some ideas from these experiments.
like, how to make the rack system, so the bass drum would not touch the ground. more about that later in that other category.
here a look from the side:
now, a sound file would be nice to have, wouldn’t it?
this was recorded with a zoom h2, about three meters in front of the band, above the heads of the audience. no amplification for the drums at all:
