Hell o Hy­brid!

Rhythm - - BEAT! - David Sher­man, via email

Great in­ter­view with Beanie and Oli Wise­man. Re­ally in­ter­est­ing stuff, it’s not of­ten we get to read about the new drum­mers out there on the mas­sive gigs – a real eye opener, so dif­fer­ent from the same old guys out there with an acous­tic kit that’s not changed much since the ’60s. And just when I was think­ing I’d like to get some elec­tron­ics in my kit, hav­ing been in­spired to do so by those guys, but won­der­ing how, turn the page and your Go­ing Hy­brid? how-to fea­ture hits the nail on the head. It’s per­fect for peo­ple like me who want to dip their toes – it’s a lit­tle in­tim­i­dat­ing if you don’t know what you’re do­ing and your sug­ges­tions for start­ing out should get me go­ing in the right di­rec­tion. So thanks guys, bril­liant mag, as al­ways! Thank you David, they’ re great play­ers on mas­sive gigs and such nice guys too. Hav­ing been on Rhythm now for quite a few years, I can at test to the fact that with most drum­mer sand drum set-ups in the rock genre, very lit­tle changes from gig to gig… vari­a­tions on a well-worn path be­hind Bon­ham, Moon, Baker et al. But with the new tech­nol­ogy at our dis­posal, we can open up our play­ing to such abroad palette of sounds via elec­tron­ics that it’ s an en­tirely new landscape for drum­mers out there play­ing now. There’ s noth­ing wrong with a straight up acous­tic rock set-up, nor will we ever get bored of hear­ing one. But it’ s both fun and in­cred­i­bly use­ful th­ese days to add elec­tron­ics to your arse­nal, and we’ re pleased you’ re find­ing our Hy­brid fea­ture help­ful to get you started! I’ m sure you’ ll all agree that S tu Wil­liams did an awe­some job of break­ing it down so you can choose the set-up that’ s right for you.–CBu
