random aside , not helpful but...


I recorded/broadcast the very same drum kit, in a MUCH larger space..... (Church sized live / broadcast venue )

Not once but twice..... Once in the hands of the same act...

once in the hands of a certain more noteworthy artiste the night he infamously got thrown off stage by the promoter ,..,..


those in the know can go find the you tube video and see the kit in situ....


I had a jolly good chuckle when I saw the article..... and messaged Mike directly.... ;)

Kit sounded alright in the hands of the youths Mike also worked with, but the drummer needed to come to physical maturity and gain better consistency in his playing / power/ control

Although, I have to say, I wish I'd been anything like that mature at that age! :) I mean, those kids have a work ethic like you wouldn't believe...

Average age 13 and a bit, didn't he say 3rd CD? Just had another listen and I see where Max is coming from but he's damn good for 13. It's decent by any standard and a bit exceptional for their age.
