Thanks for liking Rob!
I’m glad you liked it Lesley!
Nice! Great shot. I can hear the music!
The soul of this image came from the music.
Oh man I can just hear the rhythm of the drums, and look how the paint has chipped off of his sticks, are they rubber tips on the sticks? Interesting that his rider is on upside down! What is the reason for that? A different sound from it?
Thanks for liking this.
You can tell it is a soulful tune, right? I think I captured that.
They look like nylon tips invented by drummer Joe Calato in the 1950s. They became popular by the 1960s. Wood sounds better, but one little wood chip off the tip and they are unusable. Nylon never chips. It’s a brighter sound than wood and cuts through the band better. I prefer wood. The sticks pictured in my photo I believe to be wood. They look like nylon because they have lost all the black paint.
Those are the hi-hats that are controlled with the left foot. They open and close like clam shells and you play the top with a stick. The ride cymbal is on the other side.
If you look at his ride you will notice that he has it on upside down to how other cymbals are usually mounted!
Ok, Now I see what you are talking about. That’s called a China cymbal which is always played upside down. They sound like a trash can lid…very funky. I should have known. That’s my china cymbal!
