"This show used mostly drum set and auxiliary percussion with some bell parts added for certain scenes. The musical director asked for a toy bells feel so I got the standard student model bell set and used hard brass mallets to get the sound he wanted. The floor tom was only used for timpani like rolls and in the 'Bombie Samba' so I tuned it low to sound like a Brazilian surdo. The auxiliary instruments were two LP Jam Blocks, cowbell, ratchet, and a triangle with the Miller Machine!"
