Hi, If i be so bold why not go for a third option. Electric Drums, i know the Roland stuff is very good and has the option of being able to have full control over the volume level.Training a drummer to play quiet is hard, i know this from personal experience having worked with youth bands for many years. With electric kits nowadays the sound is excellent, i would say that 90% of people would not notice the difference between the electric and acoustic drums.Rich
Yeah, then you end up with the e drummer listening to a L/R mix in his ears, with no idea what he is sending to FOH on the other output channels, ambience including cymbals that are louder than the toms in the toms channels, patches that change in relative volume every song, and a kick drum (don't ask me how he managed this, must have been a signal loop in the patch) constantly feeding back.I will take the acoustic kit and a drummer that really knows how to play, thank you.
We transitioned to X-32's P-16 Aviom style pods, and really just trying to lower the stage volume at the church. I was watching some videos from clearsonic and from what I gather, the real control comes from total enclosure. While that is obvious, I also think it is extremely ugly. Does anyone have any real world experience with a shield up against a wall with sound deadening only behind on the wall? The church ceiling height is about 50 feet up and drums are located on left side of the stage. They are also mic'd. Thanks!
Sometimes having the entire band on in-ears can actually make the stage volume go up. Especially with drummers. They don't realize how loud they are playing with ears in. They don't get the "sound" they are wanting until they hit hard. I've made several drummers pull their in-ears out and tell them to play with the same intensity as when they were in.....most of them said they had no idea it was that loud.Pretty much the same with guitarist.
A drummer behind a shield or in a booth without at least some sort of hearing protection in is going to be a permanently deaf drummer VERY quickly G
Not if they play at sane volume levels.
If they were playing at sane levels you wouldn't need the shield in the first place.Sent from my DROID RAZR HD using Tapatalk
