Update - My new Traynor DW10 200 watt amps are awesome. Check them out here.
Virtual Percussion when used by electronic, midi or synthesized drums/percussion in a virtual media such as streaming video, streaming audio or other bandwidth capable media.
With advanced designs in electronic percussion I have found that over the years the engineering enhancements have opened the doors for us to enter into a new dimension of percussion technology.
When I first used the electronic synthesizers with my Premier Acoustic Kit in the 1970's (see 4 clip-on synth's upper toms in the picture on the right) I was able to add sounds to the Acoustic Kit that were an enhancement to the acoustic capabilities. The rims of the toms could be used to produce a second set of percussion instruments linked to the PA system sending the sound via a different path and area of the room. Sounds coming from somewhere that the audience were hearing and trying to figure out how it was being done.

I have been playing drums and harmonica for many years. To see a bio click here.
I play in a number of bands and jam with many musicians. To see some jam videos and check out my personal WutEver Band updates click here.
We can accept and become a part of this new technology, discover it's capabilities and creatively bring these new sounds and developments into today's music to start a whole new dimension of music. Or, continue to use acoustic percussion. Take a look at music concerts today and you will see more and more electronic percussion in combination with acoustic percussion in every genre of music.
Once we learn how to balance the synthesized with our creativeness there will be a new music that we have never heard before. GPrice-2008
P.S. My other collection are my Blues Harps (see pic at right).

My Odell Borg - High Spirits Flutes (Native American style) that I added to my Blues Harp collection a few years ago while on a trip to Colorado Springs, 'Garden of the Gods Park' have influenced a change in my style. The High Spirits Flutes have a unique beautiful sound. http://www.highspirits.com/
Below is my build of adding a 22-inch Skinny Sidekick Bass Drum with a Roland KD-A22 Conversion Kit to my Roland TD-25 V-Drums.
The TD-25 Drum Stand definitely does not work for fitting this Bass Drum & I used my TD-12 Drum Stand with some refitting of the frame & it works.
The Roland Documentation recommends the MDS-50K Drum Stand & it would work much better, but I wasn't about to add another expense buying a new Drum Stand.
This is a nice setup & the new look makes this a beautiful kit.
It triggers very nice, so far no problems.
Next, I'll be fitting a double bass drum pedal.

Below- DW-10 Traynor e-drum 200 watt amps
My recent purchase at Long & McQuade Music in Peterborough. The TD-25 Roland V-Drums and the DW-10 Traynor e-drum 200 watt amps. I traded in two of my Yorkville NX25P 200 watt Powered Speakers for 2 new Traynor DW10's. I connected them to my new Roland TD-25 V-Drums when I got back & WOW!!! How could I have lived without them? Talk about bottom end Bass Drum with no distortion. Frequency range clear top to bottom. And the other great thing is that they are a lot lighter & take up half the space. If any drummer is looking for a percussion amp, this is the one.
