All they need to do is see....
« on: August 25, 2006, 10:01:58 AM »

So I'm playing a casual at a friend's house tomorrow, and last night we had a rehearsal.  This was the first time we'd be working with some of the members--couple of string players and a vocalist.  The string players I'd worked with before, but I'd never met the vocalist so she had never seen my Zendrum.  I took it out of the case, showed it to her and bragged about it for a minute or two.  So, then dovetailing from a different conversation, she says to me, "well, you know, if you're gonna play in MY band, you're gonna have to play a real kit."  So I just shrugged and said "Okay".  No point in arguing it, right?

Then we started practicing.

The first song I had an electronic kick, dance-snare, and a few scratch-type sounds.  She turns around at the end of the song and yells, "That is the coolest ----ing thing I have ever seen!!!".  Then the next song was this nice laid-back funk song, so I simply stepped to a new Patch (ha!) and enjoyed me brass snare, big ol' kick, etc.  I played a few fills and this singer gives me that same "holy crow" look.  It was hilarious.

When we finished a few songs, the singer says to me, "that was awesome man!  I didn't think I'd like it when I saw it, but it looks so different when you're actually playing it.  That thing rocks!"  And I just laughed and said, "I know, doesn't it?!".

Don't you just love it when an instrument speaks for itself???
