  • Custom Conaway- Gigging Setup, Drumhead Art (+ more)

    My big rack setup is at a theatre for the next two months as I'm playing a musical revue gig with a local theatre company there. In the meantime, however, I had a couple gigs elsewhere so I had my gigging setup with me. I decided to set it up at home to practice a little bit (as well as muck around with some extra gear laying around).

    An update of my big setup can be found here:
    http://www.pearldrummersforum.com/sh...195205&page=15

    First, I'll show you just my basic gigging four-piece with just single bass, hi-hat, and two ride cymbals.

    Second, I've added another drum, double pedals, and some other cymbals (just for fun).


    Specs:
    Conaway Custom Drums (Keller VSS maple, natural to blue fade with brass hardware)
    10x6
    12x7
    14x10
    20x18

    Pearl Virgil Donati Signiture Snare 14x5

    14" HHX Legacy Hats
    20" HHX Legacy O-Zone Ride
    21" HHX Legacy Ride

    16" HHX Stage Crash

      Man, your kit is incredible, and the art is just amazing. Sometimes drawing on heads looks tacky, but that is so gorgeous. Does the ink affect the tone at all?

      Also, incredible cymbal setup.

          I don't think the ink affects tone or resonance of the drums at all. If it was something a little heavier, like paint or something, then it may have an affect but the ink does very little. I haven't been able to notice any difference in comparison to heads without anything on them.

          And these pictures are when I added a few extra toys:

                Your drums have always stunned me since post one, dude. Absolutely stunning. The sizes, the cymbals, the hardware choices...wow! You have quite a beauty. Plus, I really love the artwork on your front reso. You oughta' check out the reso on my kit in my sig. It's not done by hand, but it was a "custom" order.

                It's been quite a while since your last update. That's a cool little gigging set-up that you have going there now.
