  • Looking like acoustic drums

    I love everying about v-drums, from the sound, to the feel, to the look. I love being an electrionic drummer, & by no means want to be an electronic drummer pretending to be an acoustic drummer. However when im on stage other people (non-drummers mostly) tend to get the idea that because i play electronic drums that "Im not really playing" & that its just a machine playing for me. Wouldn't it be great if roland could come up with a bass drum pad which looks like an acoustic drum? And maybe even make this bass drum double up as a case for all the other pads? Also maybe some cymbals which are shaped like real cymbals (i believe that roland has already done this), also maybe have them coloured gold like real cymbals? Am I asking for too much? I only want people to recognise me as a "real drummer" & not somebody sitting behing a machine playing.

      I always thought the Hart product photos were funny -- of course drum/cymbal placement is a very personal thing, but can you imagine a drummer with this setup? Not likely.

        OK, well the drum positioning ain't that bad. But the cymbals... good lord.

          What's the problem? I am a very tall person myself and always setup things very wide. Especially when we play on very small stages (sorry guitar players)


          Funkapotimus, don't care for what people think or say about your drum kit. To me every acoustic kit looks awfull as well. With all those kitsch chrome things. Yeggg....

          And what is it all about. About music? Your playing? Or did the audience pay for a beauty competition? Nah ....

            Me too. The rack toms are just plain wierd. And the cymbals leaning back and outwards. Surely that is hard to play?!

              oh yeah - are those two outer cymbals 'chinas' as it were?

                funkapotimus - check out pintech's vision line as well. i owned a vision kit and, with the exception of the very small bass drum (true for almost all offerings), many drummers would not know my drums were e's until i started plugging cords into them. even then frequently people thought they were internally miked.

                  Common sense - the Hart photos are spread like that to allow you to see the gear... However they did have that exact kit config. displayed at NAMM. It was adjusted better for playing....

                  Those kits play GREAT...and compare quite will with the V-s......Szvook is probably the only other one here who has played one (they still have not shipped from the factory) and he would surely contest to their quality.

                  Want an acoustic-looking e-kit?? Call me - I will build you one with a lifetime warranty....you pick the finish.

                    The Pro line feels great and I am sure it will perform to the expected standards of future users. Based on how well the Hart line has worked in the past I do not foresee anything but great results with the new Pro line as well. And since I have been using only Hart products for recording and live applications, I can comment on how well the products work and how well they perform based on the claims from Hart from a users point of view and I have yet to be disappointed, thankfully!
