I started playing with Ahead Drumsticks during that time also. 

Much of the equipment used has been fashioned and createdElectronic drum music uses props like the Bass Drum Fishtank by Vince Schaefer, to go with the FatKAT bass drum pedaland the HatKAT hihat pedal! by Vince Schaefer. Included is the Fish Tank style bass drum, Switch Drums, Drum Lights and more! This drum set can play any imaginable sound or instrument, along with lights! The whole set-up, including the PA or sound reinforcement system and lighting systems, fits into a car. Using very modern technology makes this sound clean and loud as I need it. This is accomplished with three midi interfaces. The DrumKAT, the Cheeta midi master keyboard, and the studio 64X  interface from Opcode. Recording is done in Cakewalk, with audio editing done in Sound Forge. To hear what this stuff sounds like when drummed on, click: Download Free Real Audio samples

New Stuff we've added recently!

  • Update to the incredible DrumKAT Turbo 2000 Much faster, smoother, with some great features that will enhance the íVince Drums Musicí project. High hat is now smooth like a real one.
  • Personal Samples 8 meg. Of personal samples I cut up and processed in Soundforge 4.5, are stored on a PCMCIA card, in the QSR. An additional 8 meg. will be added soon.
  • Mackie SRM 450ís Incredible bi-amplified, active cross over, servo controlled, auto-on monitors that are loud enough to rock a pretty big room. Iíve played with 4000 watt systems in the past that were not this loud. Unbelievable bass, brilliant clarity, and two only take up half my trunk. The two that were just added to the system keep Vince cranking in stereo!

  • Digitech Vocalist Workstation adds reverb as well as tuning and harmonizing features to the vocal rack to enhance the singing package.
