I see, but I don't understand without the sound. I am very curious to hear what you did.  Did you record any of your playing?  Maybe you could post a little mp3. Glad that you finally made it back home. Thumper

Ok honestly...you know when you play a gig and you like what you play more than not...I feel I was about 75% happy...No glitches to speak of...the sun messed with me at first...hard to see those LED's and LCD's in sunlight...plus the sun started to mess with my Mandala drum...but once the sun when down...smooth sailing..the midi gods were good to me that evening....the kit is a blast to play and the Wavedrum is major major fun....everytime I play it I discover new things about it...it keeps me exploring and that is what we are all about on here. Look at the instrument we all play and love!!..that is exploring at the max....putting the sticks down and your thinking cap on!   "the mayor"

Avast Thar Mayor,

      Shiver me timbers, but that rig be complex.  Aye am not certain what some of it even does (particularly that hanging thing that looks like a drying Octopus).  But Aye bet it was fun nonetheless.

That was really interesting Mr. Mayor!

You have lots of fun percussion toys, and that's what it's all about... having fun.....
 I noticed a big smile on your face during the whole shoot... cool!  ;D

Tom,
  Or should I say Mr. Mayor... That was a wonderful interview. It is quit evident you love what you do. What a great life playing percussion. When I grow up I want to do that... (I'm 58 now is there still time)?
