Calling all percussionists, what did you think of the percussion the organisers provided? Whenever I wandered past the 4th section hall on Sunday (LSC) I listened to the timps and thought the tuning was a bit wild, but when we FINALLY got in (we were last to go on!) I discovered why. In short, they were CR*P! :frown: I've used some pretty ropy timps in the past but these were really bad. For example, when I want to change down quickly I expect the pedal to go up on its spring, not to just sit there and need lifting up with my foot! It's bad enough having to quickly get used to a new instrument on stage as it is, but it should at least work properly!
