My first "build" video - the "Walktail Kit"

Put this kit together last year for a special project. I basically wanted a "marchable drumset". I needed a kick sound, a snare sound, and a hat sound, and I needed them to project outdoors, and be light / nimble enough to move with.

This is what I came up with! 

(Featuring music from Silencio)

And now a bit of how it sounds!

Shuitar!

I've been super into the Shuitar ever since I saw the Wood Brothers cover Michael Jackon's "PYT" on an episode of the Onion's AV Club Undercover.  

It's basically a cheap guitar that is specially made to be used as a percussion instrument. There are jingles added, foam muffling inside the body, a special bridge, and a few other modifications to make it similar to a guitar-shaped cajon.

So, I took that Shuitar, added a Boss RC-202 Loop Station, a Shure Beta 98AD/C mic , and an LP Finger Shot Shaker and proceeded to mess around with some effects / loops.

Enjoy!

The "Atmo Kit"

Was trying out something new for a new project -- wanted to try to see how far away from a "traditional" drumset I could go while still keeping the general "layout" -- I didn't want it to become a multiple percussion setup.

This was one of my early versions - a 26" Gretsch kick with no muffling, a heavily muffled 16" Gretsch floor tom on the right side, an unmuffled 18" Gretsch floor tom on the left, a Morfbeats Marvin and Rhythm Tech Reco-Reco as the "snare", an LP Shekere + Rhythm Tech Hat Trick Tambourine as hi hats, and a 19" Meinl Byzance Extra Dry crash.

Really enjoyed playing this setup! I've got some more clips on my Instagram, but this is probably my favorite.

First attempt. Sloppy. But think there might be something to this rig.
