I splurged a little for this 'LP ES7 Timbale Bell' -- Of course, I had to hear what it sounds like with my recording set-up first thing. lol. It's buried behind the toms (mounted to the kick). I can already hear (and feel) it will have to be moved further to the open position of the kit. Thinking I might get a more 'simple' bell for the bass drum mount in the future (... when 2 bells are being played - the contrast is enough - I think -- and something like a 'Black Beauty' may be more versatile for rock stuff). --- On a side note -- I can feel my 'rimshot experiments' settling down a bit... beginning to understand the formula between velocity and power. That being said -- I think it will always be fun to get funky and wild with the snare.
Began studying drums in February 2018. Loving every minute of it!.
