Re: Can you record electric drums with real cymbals?
i played drums for like years from hs to like mid college for a couple metal bands before i get intor guitars, and i rememebr being able to play faster and smoother with electric drums, but lacked the charachter and sound of real drums and those were better live and stuff
but like some musicians like buckethead, he will track over and over and over and record ton and snare and cymbal sounds and would add them on a timeline himself with brian the brain, and they would make really complex realistic sound right out of a computer just using really good recordings..all different for songs....and then buckethead does his tracking over that
so for sounds i say electric is fine, but for stage nothing beats the aura of a nice tama starclassic...and without paying bux drumsets suck
i had a starclassic maple origional 8 ply with matural finish on it with a green stain, and i had db and 4 toms and two snares, and i had lots of cymbals, and let me tell you those matter for recording, i had a customs k customs, k constantinople rides and a couple k custom dry rides and older k rock..and i tell you what, they sounded great...compared to some cymbals...id say your better off with the electric set! some cheap cymbals they make dont sound good at all
