Heres a first go, I just freestyled so its raw enough but I am only finding my feet in Abelton Live so even getting this far, im a little chuffed with! Its recorded using a Roland DR80 Mic and it was positioned over the drum, but ill experiment with the sound hole also to see which produces the best sound for future recordings.
Since ordering this drum it has brought a world of joy every time while playing it. They can only be ordered in California and made by John Pascuzzi from Hapi Tones.com and are custom made per order. The one I have is tuned to the Akebono Scale of E and you dont have to be an expert to get some lovely sounds out of it. To play is very natural and intuitive and as its in a Pentatonic scale you cant go too far wrong
If you would like to play yourself before shelling out for one, you can play an online virtual one HERE
