  • Crystal Beats, first time out!

    First time out with the new band, so I brought out the new kit!
    After I set them up, I realized that every time I start a new band, I get a new kit! haha.

            We went with Stereosphere. It was the one that had the best reaction / least dislike. Haha.

            They sounded great, from what I was told. Haha. Its hard to hear what the real sound is like from behind the kit on stage, but I had multiple people come up to me and tell me they sounded awesome. Lots of people noticed them!

            As you can see from the pictures, we have a full DMX controlled light rig, so I'm in the process of figuring out how to light them up without spending $900 for the DrumLite kit.
            $300 for the 4 piece package
            $100 for an extra drum (since I have the 5 drums)
            $500 for the DMX light controller adapter.

            I mean come on, LED strips are like $20 and DMX interfaces are like $40. I just have to get into DIY mode and go for it.

              Yes those drum lights are expensive. If there's a DIY way DIY! I had that same ride. For an economy ride it has a really nice ping. The wash is a bit rusty for my taste, but I did find it semi-crashable.

              Cool name. You guys have a good look together and I'm digging the bass players bass! Sweet!!!

                Thanks, yea I have a K custom Special dry ride as well, but for this type of band its waaay too quiet. I actually got that ZBT ride for free about 9 years ago. Its not bad for a cheap one. I do have some electrical tape on the bottom of it to take out a little of that rusty noise that you are referring too. Made it sound a little dryer and a lot cleaner.

                Yea, his bass is pretty cool. Its a 74 reissue Jazz bass.

                  A little clip from the show. This is one of our more "reggae" feeling songs. Its also just a short clip as the its really about 10 minutes long, haha.
