  • Real Kit Convergence

    Over the last couple of months I've been tweaking my "perfect" dry-ish studio rock kit. Just enough ring, just enough cut, just right. Finally I've got it close to how I want it, and I decided to have a thrash. I dug out Steve Vai's "Passion and Warfare" 'cos I hadn't listened to it for ages, and had a play-along.

    The weird thing was, after playing for a few minutes, I realised that my kit IS Chris Frazier's kit! The snare tone, ring, even the pitch spread of the Toms was near perfect. The only thing different was his ride which was drier. I'd never intentionally set out to recreate his kit, and as I say, I'd not listened to the CD for ages.

    Coincidence or subconscious? Discuss.

    Coincidence. Just the opposite used to happen to me (w/my acoustics). What happened? How come no one uses Ludwig anymore?

        Don't worry; Ludwig will always have a place. My Ludwig Limited Edition Super Classic Satinwood 6.5X14 snare is still my dream drum, and gets some recording use when I'm called on to record acoustic.

          Oh that editing. The whole reason I put Rolands tech so far ahead of the rest!!! Isn't it great!

          Had to be the subconscious kicking in. There is always those recordings that just seem to stick with you. I for example, always liked that HUGE sound Gary McCracken (Max Webster) got on Universal Juveniles. Now I've got to sit down and sort that one out.

            Send your perfect kit to the rest of us. Use the v kit trans. so the rest of us can have a listen and a go at your custom kit.

              Will do, as soon as the V's are in MIDI-able distance of my PC
