    Default Porchboard Bass drum kit

    This is my most recent kit for low volume gigs; open mics, country jams, garage partys, wineries.
    Featuring the Porchboard bass



    And a Video of it in action from last fall:

    Here is my page of drum history over my 38yrs (of drumming, not living).
    Not as many kits as girlfriends, but it's a start!

    Yes, it has a good, tight sound, without all the extraneous noise of a real bass drum. For those gigs where you really need to get the volume down without resorting to electronic drums (which I also do when I have to).

    Porchboard has a new model out, smaller, lighter, lower profile, slightly modified sound.
    I have one on the way, looking forward to it.
