    Default Pic request: Jazz Kits

    For those who play jazz can you please show some pics of your kits so I can get some ideas?

    Could someone explain to me why jazz kits traditionally have small bass drums and toms? Whats the story behind this?

    Because larger drums were not necessary and sometimes too overpowering in small, unmic'd jazz settings. The larger bass drums used in big bands were done because nothing was mic'd so it had to cut through. That wasn't an issue in the smaller groups.

    because you dont want the drums to overpower
    the cymbals are usually the main component in jazz i believe
    4 piece with 2 rides or a ride and a crash ride. and then hi hats of course.
    usually coated 1 ply batters on everything.


    I used to use this forum for quite a long time, took a break from 2010-late 2012. Hoping to be more active again!

    I heard they used to play bigger basses,but they had to cary a lot of equipment in subways and in taxis so they made 'em (especialy the bass) smaller

    But i guess allso for volume reasons
