Looks like a superstar on stage there. And I don't mean the Tama kind.

Wow, Tommy. You brought out the "heavy metal" for the old Infinity in Norfolk? I'm surprised those would even need to be mike'd there. You must have blown the roof off! All that work polishing those shells really paid off, because they look absolutely radiant under those stage lights.. Beautiful portrait shot of your "new" Fibes. Looks like a catalog shot.
Thanks for sharing.

Mike

First ... THANKS for all the nice commets! : VM2000 ... larryz ... snaremania ... and idrum4fun! And now, let me address the miking comment Mike! :

Take note that the drums are miked in a "jazz style" miking ... NOT close miked! Big difference of course! Plus, just because they're fiberglass shells doesn't immediately mean that they are overbearing or loud! That's kind of a misconception actually. Plus, it all comes down to how they are headed/tuned , and more importantly... HOW they are played! With that all said, you wouldn't want a 6 piece band with a vocalist all miked, and the drums hung out totally acoustic as it wouldn't sound balanced .. plus .. and you've seen the Sinatra Show Mike! ... I play a few tunes/arrangements on brushes. No way that's getting out over the band without a little sound reinforcement. So! ... when you have a group that plays completely blended and with the use of DYNAMICS, you want everything miked for the room so it can be mixed like a CD! That all mentioned ...

... guys came up to the stage after the show to tell me that the Fibes sounded incredible in the room. One was a drummer!, and he said ..." incredibly dynamic yet powerful drums ..." , which just blew me away! What I have noticed about these is NOT their volume per se, but how FOCUSED they are! I think you'd have to hear them in context Mike ... or better yet, stop over and play 'em! <smile> I attached a pic from the side showing no close miking ... overheads are to capture the entire set and make it blend with the rest of the band. ENJOY!

Tommy,

Thanks for replying (and conversing) about the nature of these Fibes shells. Like a lot of drummers unfamiliar with fiberglass shells, I had always assumed (incorrectly) that the hardness and non-absorption properties of fiberglass resulted in a lot of internal "amplification" like metal shells (ringy and cold), but from what you describe, they are neither "metal-like" nor "wood-like" but rather, they are their own distinct thing. And I understand the whole overhead miking situation now. Playing in a 30-piece military band, I rarely play mike'd, because as you explained, either everyone's mike'd or everyone's acoustic. You can't have some instruments coming through the speakers and some not.

And yes, I'd love a chance to sit behind those beauties. When it's a convenient time for you, and you have them set up at home again, I'll have to sneak away from work and check them out.

Mike
