  • Popular bands using V-Drums?

    Does anyone know of any bands that have some national stature and use V-Drums? I am looking to book a show/workshop and would like to get an act that would draw outside of the eDrum world for an evening concert. I am thinking along the lines of a 500 seat theater.

    I'm guessing if you had Tommy Lee at a 500 seat theater, it would sell out.

    Tris Imoden of Chicago uses vdrums in the studio.

        The Everyday Prophets out of Portland, OR use v-drums, they're at least a regional act as they venture to at least Montana.

          Yeahsayer from New York. Although the drummer uses acoustic drums, he uses an SPD-S for the main part of his kit. Excellent band. Check them out here live from the Jools Holland Show.

              Hart Pro 6.4 (Hammered Chrome), Roland TD-8, Gibraltar Throne w/ Backrest, Tama Iron Cobra Bass Pedal, ALTEC A7-500 "Voice of the Theatre" Speaker/Horn System with Sunn Concert Slave amp and lot of other audio stuff, Sony MDR-7506 Headphones, Zildjian DipSticks - and Czech Skorpian, Heckler & Koch MP5, etc Submachine Guns to stick out the window behind my kit for some quite unique fills...

                Well, I have been checking out a lot of these bands. Especially the Hart endorsers. Whatever they use eDrums for, it doesn't seem they use them in concert.

                I am really looking for a band that uses eDrums as their main drum kit. Besides Rick Allen and the back half of Neil Peart's kit, it is hard to find.

                New Order isn't together really. And I could fill a lot more than 500 seats at a New Order show.

                  I just had a thought. Bela Fleck's (not exactly a household name but he does have a nationwide audience) drummer, Futureman (Roy Wooten) has invented his own e-drum instrument and has also used a Zendrum in concert. The Zendrum site shows a number of drummers who've played with national acts. Yeah, it's not edrums per se but I'm grasping. Scroll down to the bottom of the page (http://www.zendrum.com/technotribe.html) and I saw Stephen Perkins listed. Hell, Mick Fleetwood is listed.

                  Otherwise, like you, I've had a helluva time finding any band with a national presence that uses edrums on the road. This reminds me of a thread I saw either here or at edrumming several years back that discussed how edrums weren't up for the rigors of road travel. That then lead into the usual "TASTES GREAT!!!!!---LESS FILLING!!!!" screaming matches (in here at least during the dark bad old days) about which products were more robust, Roland or Hart.

                  Oh wait, duh, our very own Darren Costin (of Wang Chung fame) uses Boom Theory equipment and does so live.

                    Are you counting acoustics with triggers in that? If so, then the number goes up.

                      Johnny Rabb was just here in Montreal at DrumFest with his Roland TD-20 kit. His band Biodiesel tours. He is very approachable and hung out with us for a couple of hours on day 2 of the Fest (he played on day 1). After you watch him do his rolls, you no longer question if v-drums can eliminate machine gunning.

                            I LOVE Bela Fleck! Flight of the Cosmic Hippo is a great CD! I own a few of his CD's. Great banjo but in rock format, sorta. ii
