Alex Alexander - "I use Rhythm Tech products with guitar effects pedals, creating new sounds never heard before! I also like to have around the kit so i can play them as the occasion arises."
Frank Bellucci - "I play the tambourine & bells with my feet. They are mounted to the foot pedal
Mike Bennett - "Nothing unusual but I'm learning to always carry a Rhythm Tech Shaker & Hat Trick with me at all times. They always come in handy when adding color and character to a tune on stage and in the studio!"
Brendan Buckley - "I dig using the crasher as a disco hi hat."
CanUnDrum - "... discovered that by attaching The Laptop to the open end of a bucket that we can achieve a snare-like sound allowing us to play it like any "real" drum and thereby keep true to our "un-drum" theme."
Jeff Consi - "I sometimes mic up and use the Laptop for a funky 16th note overdub w/ brushes."
Richard Crooks - "Shakers taped to sticks. Use any hardware including floor tom legs for mounting ...percussion gear."
Adam Culvey - "Let's see... last week I was carrying my Smoky Blue Canz shaker in my back pocket while hauling the solo artists' 120 lb keyboard. When someone asked me, 'hey, I thought you played percussion', I simply shook my rear (in time, of course)." I'm not sure if I told you this before, but I've been placing an RT True Colors tambourine on top of my kick drum, both live and in the studio ...groovy.
Manton Daly - "The active snare system is crisp, brilliant and sensitive. It brings to your snare a
Kenwood Dennard - "Coordinating shaker instead of a ride cymbal"
John Ferraro - "l like to hold the maraca with a stick to create a LOOP like feel for grooves. Also I use it for latin feels. I love the handle, it is easy to hold, nice balance. The Lap Top is really great for practice, teaching and recording"
Shannon Ford - "Tape a jingle shake to a loose snare drum with the snares off for a nasty backbeat!"
Gigi - "During a percussion gig, I play timbales, congas, bongo, and many of the RT percussion instruments. I find that mounting most of my RT percussion on one cymbal stand via the mounts makes it easy to play as well as to transport."
Paul Gonzalez - "I have a Computer Keyboard placed inside one of my Mountable Gig Trays... which is then mounted to a cymbal stand on my Studio Kit. It allows me to record myself, and be my own engineer without leaving my drum throne!"
Erik Hargrove - "Hitting two shakers together on the ends in rhythmic ways along with shaking them."
Carlos Hatem - "I attached the original hi-hat tambourine ring to a bass drum pedal without the beater for a foot operated tambourine"
Charles Heath - "I sometimes use my tambourines on my toms and snare to get various colors"
Brian Melick - "Stack them so that one sound is sympathetic to the other. Very abstract and unusual"
Voyce McGinley - "I often borrow visual elements from the pandeiro and riq styles of playing to use on my RT tambourines. I also mount a pair of RT tambourines onto a Gajate pedal to add clave, back-beat, or other syncopated accents whenever I play hand-drums. For pedal usage, I cable-tie a pair of RT tambourines together to create greater stability and volume."
Stanton Moore - "I've been using the Englehart stuff in the galactic set up. I've got contact mics on
Cary Nasatir - "I have the Skratcher mounted on my RT Timbales. I also use the Crasher mounted on my vintage Leedy one-piece cocktail set. It subs well for a closed hi hat sound."
Rafael Padilla - " ...i've been using your Tambs for the last 20 years in every session i've ever done, and also on every tour i've done. They're Simply the Best"
Kurt Rasmussen - "The Crashers are great for the "World Style" music of Cirque do Soleil. They're also great for our clown acts! Clowns dig their sound a lot more than traditional cymbal crashes and slap sticks. I love to use them for "Punching The Clown"
Kevin Rice - "I often stuff several Eggz shakers into my left sock for cool shaker effect. Besides being cool shakers the Fruits are also good for a laugh when unassuming folks go in for a bite."
Winston Roye - "I just picked up the RT Pro tambourine. It sounds great! I use it instead of hi-hat for one tune and the extra amount of jingles, and the slightly rubbery top surface makes it mix perfectly through the hat mike."
David Sanger - "The Laptop was perfect for European travel. We showed up at a live radio taping with no drums. Out came the laptop and 'viola!' "
Mike Smith - "Often I play a 16th note pattern on the metal shakers while striking it with the
