  • Some live videos!

    Hey everyone!

    Got some videos to share! A couple of live songs from my alternative rock band's recent gig. I've been with these guys for about 5-6 months or so and this was my third gig with them (although I have been friends with a couple of the guys for longer than that). The band was together for about 18 months before I joined them.

    Anyway, here are the videos! Enjoy!

          The songs are originals. Pretty much everything we do are originals, though we are possibly looking at throwing in a cover or two into our sets.

            How is your kit amped?

              It's normally just plugged into a DI and straight into the mixer desk from there. I ask the sound tech to make sure it's cranked up in everyone's foldback and it's usually fine. At other venues I've had my own foldback wedge next to me but on this occasion I didn't so we just shifted one of the other speakers closer to me.

              I'm looking at possibly grabbing a couple of those KAT KA2 amps for my own monitoring but they aren't out in Australia yet. So far at all of the venues we have played at they wouldn't have been necessary anyway, stage volume hasn't been an issue.

                Nice job and a nice clean recording. Is that straight off the sound board?

                You guys are tight for being together such a short time.

                That said, you look like a bunch of hooligans! What's wrong with nice business suits and smiling?!?!?! I kid, great stuff.
                TD50 Digital Pack, TD30 and TD9 Modules, custom made pads, Gen16 crashes, and hats plus a few other things that I'm not sure what to do with or why they're still in my kit. Bands: Espada http://www.musicaespada.com/ and JamCo https://www.facebook.com/JamcoEntertainment, https://www.jamcoband.com/

                  Yes, that's the recording straight off the sound desk.

                    Oh, well if it's the sound desk then you guys are amateurs, everyone knows pro's use a sound board! HAHA, just kidding, you must be from the other side of the pond with such strange language.

                    Joking aside, great job though. I like your logo/graphic too. What city/country was the gig? Is there a good demand for original music there?

                    One thing, if you can manage to upgrade your e-cymbals, you'll be SOOOOO much happier. Even if they are still rubber, so long as they swing and look/feel more natural, I think you'd like it.

                    One of the cheap ways I did this early on was to grab an old crappy used crash and stuck a piezo under it with a 1/4" jack. I just put a rubber cymbal muffle on it and used it only to trigger open crashes. I used the Roland when I needed to choke. I was out only like 30 bucks and it looked and felt much better.

                    Just my two cents...
