Tough Under Pressure
« on: April 15, 2012, 07:05:39 am »

Just did a gig yesterday that tested the limits of what I have designed Zendrumdrive to be all about.
Played Atlanta Steeplechase for 1000 sponsors under a huge tent in the middle of a field with the entire band running off one small Honda generator. Full-out rock show for three hours using wireless Zendrum. If ever anything was going to kill a Zendrumdrive or make a wireless unit act screwy, this was going to be it. I've played this gig for many years and amps and mixers usually go crazy with the little jobsite generator's unstable brown power. Happy to report we all survived without incident or any problems except for gasoline fumes and dust in my lungs today.
Crowd went home after two encores buzzed and happy.
We were hired again on the spot for next year.
I win.

Well done sir!  I always love when my Zendrum itself is what helps generate more gigs--makes me smirk evilly at the folks who say, "well yeah, but it's not a REAL drumset".  Wireless is so fun!  I haven't used mine in about a year.   I miss it.

That's awesome Inspector.

Do you have any videos of the gig? I 'd love to see you in action.  ;D

I do have some videos of a recent show we did, I'll send the links in another post on this forum.

Hey Rand, no videos, but I may see some photos soon from that gig.
I'll put them up somewhere if I do.
