Hello fellow Ambient Drummers. I’m a virgin and I'm able to perform… very psyched!
What I’d like to do is talk mechanics.
I’m planning on bringing either timbales or roto-toms, since I’m not really a hand-drummer (sorry, love that stick bounce). I’m thinking of tossing them in a large duffle with a strap, so I can carry them around on bike. I will bring the stand but may not use it much... that’s one thing I wanted to talk about … should I rig up a ‘marching-band-type’ harness? I’m a fly-in so I have to be aware of what will fit into a second checked-bag.
Anyhow, I’d love to hear stories from anyone who has played in the circle before.
