I want to see a picture of your set up.
Do you have a standard bass beater for the snare? I would imagine that snare to be pretty durned loud compared to a suitcase bass, at least when it comes to perceived volume.
I'm going to have to steal that milk crate stand idea, that's excellent.
Sweet set up and 60$? That's a nice haul!
I love playing "Chicken Stomp" so I guess I might owe Mike a little skrilla.
It's a standard kick pedal - the crate has a piece of 1/4" ply screwed to the bottom to give a lip for the pedal to mount onto. Yes it's pretty loud. How about this for tiny drum set-up..Lewis Floyd Henry. He uses a home made amp and carries the whole rig in a baby buggy, sometimes travelling by bicycle or Honda Cub. Check out his version of "Protect ya Neck"..top flight one man band. Have a look on YouTube for more of his stuff... the Hendrix vibe is amazing sometimes....\uap> \uap>
