Hi guys, I was wondering what do drummers bring for acoustic gigs? Yeah I see plenty of cajons out there but I am looking for alternatives cos' I don't think it really fills up the space as compared to a good small setup of bass drum + snare + keeper (hats/ride).
So I thought this might be an interesting thread to all those who're doing acoustic gigs out there what you guys use? I recall Fuman's self-made DIY cocktail kit with a cajon doubling as a bass drum and the usual drumkit setup.
But feel free to chip in, if better pics will be good as well. I think this forum is quite lacking in pictures. I'll try to post something up and get criticism and some evaluation for it. Right now, I'm looking at a snare, tambourine/shaker kind of setup but I think it's kinda of lacking in punch.
Hope you guys can share some of your secrets out there, like DIY instruments or some methods you've been using at acoustic gigs?
Oh ya a point to note, don't put up entire kits alright? Setups short of a full kit is what I hope to contribute as a thread. I have some ideas in my mind and I'll put up some pictures of it soon.
