First gig using 2Box with my band Frankly
« on: April 18, 2010, 08:59:06 PM »
Yesterday me and my band Frankly (http://www.franklyonline.com) played our first gig with the 2Box kit and we rocked!  :rock:
Soundchecking the drums was done in a few minutes and the sound was incredible.
We used all 6 outputs (kick, snare, hihat, tom1+2, tom3 and the cymbals on the 6th).
The only small negative part was that my kick got some unwanted double-hits when playing live.
I've had problem with this when rehearsing but I thought I had that problem solved by changing my pedals but maybe I play slightly different live.

Anyway, it was great using the kit live and I will surely use it again.
Maybe I'll give it a try using my real hihat and some real cymbals when suitable.

Hey Frankly, just listening to your music - that's some good old-school rock man, I like it! :rock:

Glad to hear about your experience with the orange beast out in the wild too.

Thanks! Great to hear that you like our kind of rock music!  :rock:
If I didn't get any groupies I wouldn't keep that long hair orange kit.   ;D

Cheers  :rock:

I modified the Kasmir kit patch and in the end I changed it a lot.
Both the sounds and the tuning. For example I wanted a sharper sound on the snare and other cymbals.

I cant wait till I can add another cymbal and another tom to the kit.

So what sounds and tuning did you end up using.
I'm currently using the Nasvall snare and the dry recording toms live and unfortunately the kick im using is still my old ddrum4 simmons kick sample which seems to have the most punch and fullness through our Pa system which only has a basic 3 band high mid low EQ with no sweepable frequencies Arrrgh! Cant wait for the editor so I can load the simmons kick as a 2box sample  ;D
