Alfie Pugh - West Side Story

alfie-pugh-west-side-story01
Alfie's percussion setup for West Side Story at the Manor Pavilion Theatre in Sidmouth, England.

"Another very tight pit with thirteen of us squeezed in. Sadly the timpani had to go, and were replaced by an Apple MainStage set up using East West samples with the Novation Launchkey Mini keyboard. I also trigger the tam tam from this. I recently got a pair of 8" and 10" Meinl Mini Timbales, which sound great and fit really well in the small space. The trap tray is on the top tier of a double keyboard stand (held on with blu-tack). The glockenspiel is on the lower tier. I mounted the tambourine with an LP clamp onto the base of a big music stand which pokes up between the glockenspiel and timbales. I don't like putting it with the rest of the mountable stuff because it always jingles when you hit something else."
