Gavin,

Your wikipedia page sent me racing to YouTube to hear your work on 'Belighted' by IamtheMorning. I was just wondering, as an average estimate, how long does it take to record your parts and send them back out to be mixed/mastered with the rest of the band? I can only imagine the 100's of variables that need to be factored in (personal free time, recording time, putting aside other projects etc).

Great work by the way, I always find inspiration in just about everything I hear you play. No matter how discouragingly difficult it may be for me to even air-drum it.

Thanks :D

Hi keep it simple

have you ever tried monitoring bass guitar through your tactile monitoring seat? I've tried it a few times, even when sufficient audible monitoring has been available. It's surprisingly effective :)


I can't say i have. I'll bear it mind though. Thanks.

Hi Dustondrums

what equipment do you usually take with you to your clinics (except mixing console, Macbook, Porter & Davies and drumsticks) - cymbals/pedals/stands (or clamps) etc. ?


I usually can't take cymbals, pedals or stands with me. As nearly all the clinics I do involve a flight at some point - it comes down to the cost of excess baggage in the end.

Hi Venimal

Have you ever had a chance to play a Sonor Ascent drum kit? I'm in the market for a new kit, Right now I have a Pearl Vision Birch kit I got from The Drum Pad in Chicago. So, I've wanted a Sonor kit ever since I saw the prolite kit introduction, though the price tag has me at a pause. However, hearing the Ascent series online and reading what people have said about it has got me interested. The question I'm asking myself is, save a wait a few months, or get an Ascent with an extra floor tom next month. It will be more for live playing then recording, though I do hope that'll change later next year.

I played one the other day and it was very good. Not in the class of the "Made In Germany" drums though. If budget is a factor maybe consider finding a second hand DeLight (which are almost exactly the same as the ProLite range).

It depends. If the tracks I have to play to are all in good shape I can do a song (or even two) a day and send back a mix of the drums. Sometimes the songs are easy 4 minute pop songs and other times they are 17 minute 'prog' epics. 90% of folks just want me to do whatever I feel is right for the music. Some folks already have a quite accurate idea of what they want on the song. Sometimes they're on the other side of the world so it can take time for them to answer and respond.

Cheers
Gavin

Hi!

I am learning Bonnie The Cat at school right now from your Rhythmic Composition book. Is it possible to get a version of the song without the drums? This would be very helpful and fun to play along to.
Thanks!

Just a thought :) I found it particularly useful on one gig where mirroring some big dynamic changes in bass guitar parts with my bass drum dynamic was challenging.

Hello Gavin!
Could you reveal which kind of shells you use on your SQ2? Is it Maple, Birch...? Vintage, Medium or Heavy? Or do you use different shells for big/small toms and BD? (I couldn't find it on your equipment-page)
I wish you great x-mas!
Cheers, Flo

Thanks for the advice. I do have lots of time to think about it. Only thing that has me down on the Prolite kits now is, the finishes don't really grab me at the moment. The Tribal Red is an exception, but they don't seem to sell it anymore. Though, the creme white does look really nice, as well as the ebony stripes. Though, and I did put this idea in my head... Ascent shell pack with a prolite snare, or protean snare. I'll be honest, you do a really good job in selling that one on the videos I've seen on it. Not to mention the rave reviews.

Also, while searching youtube videos on Sonor kits, I found this...

You look VERY tiny in this video! Really cool to see!

Cheers! And thanks again! Next time you come to the US, if you swing by Houston, San Antonio or Austin for a clinic or a show, I'll be there!
