I have never seen a drum set with lights like that on them. Shocked And Buddy's grandson does not sound bad at all.

Haha, Yeah, Spanky, those lights are kinda cool.... I like the way they are activated by impact. Very cool...

Nick is definitely going his own way.... Doesn't sound like Buddy at all... Pretty good player too. cheers

I can see how those flashing lights may benefit having a camera above you while playing. The audience can enjoy it too if installed on the rims of the drums. It's a pretty cool idea for theatrics though...I like it.

It could probably keep me from dosing off while playing those boring gigs lol! Very Happy

Rather than be on the rims, it'd be great if the MIDI technology would trigger aspects of the lighting on the entire stage as well as be housed within the drum shells themselves. I could see the application be toggled on and off for certain songs within the playlist, rather than be constantly on - too much of a distraction for the audience if left constantly ON.

The other consideration in my opinion is I wonder how that would affect the price point for such rigged kits. From where I sit, I can imagine one would have to be on a tour with a band to justify the cost.

Altogether, too much of a good thing isn't good at all. Balance it out and only apply it when supporting the overall efforts of everyone. Lights, Sound, Action. Like a Star @ heaven
