  • Standing drumming

    Just curious of experienced drummers views on standing drumming...

    Only see it occasionally. Here are a couple of examples.

    Lee Mavers of The La's insists his drummer play standing :

    As he does himself :

        This chap talks about standing drumming... he makes the obvious point that, yeah the hihat... not ideal, but for other forms can be cool.

        I'm not sure if this is better or worse for backs !!! Not that seated is particularly good for back.. but stooping and straining hmmm

          Do whatever works for you, imo. There is an act here called Project DJ Slam that uses two standing drummers. They basically jam along to a DJ, not my kinda thin but it works well in certain situations. Standing definitely adds energy, imo. I used to do it now and again during certain songs but only parts of the song. To me, it works well in segments but loses it's impact if done the entire time. About 2 minutes into this video you see what DJ Slam is about... https://vimeo.com/37289705

                I've played a Cocktail kit for several years at winery gis and in bars. All 4 hour jobs. Just don't close your eyes and try to do a fast roll around the set. I almost lost my balance,...several times!

                  I only stand during lie the rock ending crescendo of a song. Standing an entire show? Can't operate my HH AND the bass pedal. If all I had to use was a bass pedal and no HH pedal, I could stand the whole time. Depends on the visual you're trying to get on stage with the band I guess. Standing up on the heels of my feet to play my kit properly with both pedals and double kick....awkward to say the least. So I'd say if you're gonna stand, you're gonna be tweaking your "standard" drum set layout a bit.
