  • Cover

    Below are pictures of my kit with a cover on the rack. I asked my daughter to make it; she does a lot of quilting. It is double sided as you can see, and soft and fuzzy (I like soft and fuzzy ). Right now it is attached with a couple hand clamps because she just had a baby and couldn't put on the velcro strips yet. I haven't seen anybody else doing something like this, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been tried. Or maybe no one else would do something as dumb as this, I don't know.

    Maybe I look like a geek, but what do you think? Anyone else have a 'cover?'

    Interesting...

    I think the best thing I've seen done to a kit [as far as coverage] is the simple faux BD head... although, Matt's is just a little big. I guess that was Disney's call though.

      It definitely gives it a cleaner look. And a it would be a great space for ads or logos!

        Thanks, Michael.

        Hey, I hadn't thought of that! When I become rich and famous, or more infamous, I can make more money!

        Let's see, which sponsor would like to buy me....

        I mean, rent me out...

        No wait, I mean, rent some space. There, that's it.

        Shalom

          They're coming soon

          Hello earthlings...

          I like this idea and your daughter is caring and fab for doing this, but may i suggest an update in the form of a Klingon cloaking device for gigging drummers, to protect your kit whilst you are at the bar having a pleasant glass of fruit punch.

          (my mum is an avid knitter) if i told her i wanted a five pad covering, no doubt it would end up as a six.

            That was my first thought too!

            -My second was that it looks like a "half shield" they use in some recording studios.

            When you gig you can pull an Eddie Van Halen and say "I don't want anyone to steal my sound" (Hey used to play with his back turned to the crowd early in his career so other guitarists wouldn't steal his technique/sound...which was partially because he used a quarter as a pick.)

              I suppose drummers don't make up a huge population in one gathering, but I like to be able to see foot/leg movements when I watch a drummer. Wouldn't bother me, playing, but watching....I'd be somewhat annoyed

                I think it looks kinda cool.

                The only way it could look cooler is if you added more PD-7s. You clearly don't have enough!!

                        Tommy Lee

                        Tommy's come a long way since those lean early days ... and he was certainly no dummy.

                            Too much bigger and he won't be able to see around it.

                            If you sing then I guess it would look like the bass drum is singing.

                            The PD7's come from combining my TD10 with a TD7. For transport I usually just fold the rack and put it in my pickup, but even without the toms the sucker is kind of heavy. So I think I have about as many as I can handle!

                            I was thinking (always a dangerous undertaking) that the cover gave me a larger stage presence. The E's have such a low profile they can look less substantial than A's, which may be one of the reasons people keep asking about 'real' drums. Haven't got any comments so far, but I don't use it much playing out yet.

                              I think Tommy is either triggering that drum, or has a smaller one hidden behind it which is triggered. Oh, and sweet idea BB! Although I agree that I like to be able to see what the drummer is doing when I go to a gig.
