I've never seen him live, but seven bass drums seems out there, seeing that bass frequencies tend to garble. I guess if he is shuffling all over the pedals you might be able to pick out pitch differences between largest and smallest kicks. Otherwise it ends up being just for show.

I wonder if he will ever go back to using wide open cymbals instead of the drier instruments he has used for years now.

If you haven't heard him then reserve your opinion until you do. Boomer

Forgive me, Mr. Cobham, but I stated I have never seen him live. I own his DVDs and have seen MANY video displays of his playing, listening with fine earphones or headphones. I have yet to hear examples of obvious tones or pitch differences between his kicks, save for those with measurable size differences.

It's just a simple matter of frequency and sound in a live setting.

I hasten to add I did not say Terry puts seven kicks on stage for show. I certainly regard him on a higher level than gimmicks. I stated it ends up being for show, because of the aural deficiencies.

He was a huge influence on me in
the late 1970's and early 1980's.

I was at the Halloween show and I
have to say that I was totally over-
whelmed, with his fluidity. His French
technique and that he sang killed me.

He was rudimental, funky and wicked
articulate and all at the same time.
Over the years, he became more of
everything and although we do not
get all of that, now, at the same
time; he is doing something new and
creative and that is all I can ask.

That drumkit is big but he makes use
of it in his presentation. How many
drummers on big kits make use of
them? Not that many.

I wonder what he will do next.

Regards,

Without question; Terry is one of the great innovators of our time.

Although does anyone have as big a set as he does? I guess the guy from Australia has a big set, and does the independence thing in solo format. I forget his name.

It's actually an interesting question - What is considered a big set nowadays? So many drummers play six or seven piece sets today. It's common. What's big? Whatever big is, Terry's would have to be huge even without all the bass drums.
