Updated busking kit

Using my new bass drum I updated my busking kit for playing on the street.  The requirement is that the hardware and throne have to fit in a rollerboard suitcase and the cymbals have to fit in the bass drum.

  • 10″ splash hats
  • 14″ Paiste fast crash
  • 10″ Pearl M80 snare
  • 16″ Meinl Byzance dark crash


Splash hats keep the volume under control for acoustic settings and 14″ crash is good for bright accents.  The 16″ crash is dry to keep its ride sound dark and under control while also providing a lower crash pitch than the 14″ fast (=very thin) crash.  Then the snare and bass drum can be the stars of the show!
