Check out Brendan Buckley’s electronic/acoustic hybrid drum set for Shakira’s El Dorado world tour in the video above. It’s about 50/50, he says, between pads and acoustic drums. Many of the acoustic drums also have triggers, and the final mix often has a blend of both miked drums and samples from the triggers.
This massive kit includes gear from DW, LP, Sabian, Roland, Vic Firth, and Big Fat Snare Drum. There’s also two hand percussion stations and lots of backup electronics in the setup.
