Equipment Needed for Magma's New York Gig

Stella writes that the band is looking to borrow some equipment for the New York gig on September 20th. For various reasons, they prefer not to rent the equipment, and they are looking for some good-hearted musicians to let them borrow some of the "backline" that they need for the gig.

Here is the list of what they need:

1 Fender Rhodes piano 73 notes + 1 small amp. Fender twin reverb or equivalent

1 drumkit jazz type:

  • 18" Bass Drum (mandatory)
  • 2 Floor Toms 16"–14"
  • Tom tom 12"
  • Snare 14 x 5.1/2

All mounted with Remo coated Ambassador drum heads on top and Remo coated Diplomat on bottom (this is not mandatory but it's better)

And the hardest part:
- 1 Yamaha YV-3710 vibraphone

It has to be this one because Benoit is traveling with his blades, equipped with captors. Or if someone has a vibraphone already equipped...

If you can help out, please let me know.

  1. I'll see what I can do. I live in Boston, and will probably move to NYC in September. I have some friends over there.
    I can't believe, with the connections they have, that they can't find a drumkit in NYC.....This is very surprising. Not to mention the "not renting" aspect...
