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.
