Your musical tools of the trade.
What do you play? Spoons? Guitar?

Don't be shy, show us.

Here is a kit of mine, Yamaha Oak Custom. I took this photo at a rehearsal for some jazz fusion shows.1 rehearsal, 3 gigs. Interesting band. 2 basses, sax, keys and drums. I was not a member. I was hired as a sideman. I got a mate of mine into the band. Great player.

RE: Your musical tools of the trade.
Here are my basses and some of my bass rig. I use to gig regular on bass. Now I play sax for the community band. I do not have pictures of my alto or tenor. They are both bundies. The alto is the same one I played in high school. I got the tenor last christmas.

RE: Your musical tools of the trade.
Fantastic wazzel! I don't think I ever met a bassist who played sax. Saxophone is actually my favourite instrument. And I adore bassists.

Here is what remains of my incredible Sonor Designer. Toms were stolen. I use this in small venues and at rehearsals. Happily I have another Designer kit.

Here is a close up of the snare. A killer drum.

RE: Your musical tools of the trade.
Nice kits. I have played many instruments through the years. In middle through high school I made my way from sax to barritone to tuba to french horn. On the side I have played bass, guitar, double bass and piano. I have also dappled on some other things like cello, oboe, and some other stuff but never got good enough to consider being able to play them. My oldest kid plays clairanet so I think I am going to learn that over the summer since the instrumet will be at the house all the time. Trumpet may be on the list too since that is what my son plays and I have access to a horn.

I really should have gone into music instead of engineering. Oh well, atleast I have been able to play almost continuously in something since I graduated high school.

I remembered this. I am front and center, not yet grey hair.

RE: Your musical tools of the trade.
Awesome!

Yeah I have loads of kits. Over 100 snare drums alone. Not to mention bongos and surdos and other various percussion. Nearly 50 cowbells! Smile

I know how hard it is when you play more than one instrument. I would like to study tabla but it is too late. I am nearly fifty and that instrument needs a life time. I already play all the Afro Cuban, Brasilian and African percussion. But damn I want tabla too.

I am greedy. Here is a shot of a small percussion rig I used when I MD'd a student's band.

You may note I never take gig photos. It is usually too dark and I have other things on my mind. So the above is another studio pic. Smile

RE: Your musical tools of the trade.
That is cool. You are never to old to learn something new. It will keep you sharp. Pick up a cheap tabla and see where it goes. I got an auto harp I was given. It is in need of repair, but it is on my list to learn.

I play violin. I don't have a pic handy, so you'll have to take my word for it. Tongue

How do the 2 basses interact without stepping all over each other? FUCK, it's hard enough to keep a lot of piano players at bay.....

It's Special Pleadings all the way down!
