What are smashables in terms of drums?
« on: 07/ 27/ 2010, 05:29:04 PM »
I know this might be a waste of a topic but at the moment my band is a week away from playing in one of the biggest venues in town and we all have no idea what a smashable is in terms of drums since we were told we would need to supply our own.
I think I understand it as the cymbals and snare drums are smashables but is there anything else??

The reason I posted here is cause RMS is a very musical community and would very much like an answer in time for the gig.
hope to get a reply soon

damn man, sorry but I've honestly never heard of that before. I mean I would think of it as snare and cymbals but I'm mainly a guitarist so there might be more.

Is it not cool to contact the place and ask what the hell smashables are? Maybe they're like party gifts that everyone gets....that you have to smash....

Went ahead and moved this to the music section, due to smashing instruments. If it were about "smashables" outside of instruments then I would have kept it in the other section.

Also, I did a search and I seriously have no idea what smashables are in relation to drums.

bring a whole drum set, and leave whatever you dont need in the van. or be reasonable and call the venue.

Thanks for the replies guys.
The gig went amazing and if any of you are wondering still what smashables are:
"everything you can basically take off the drums (so everything except the bass/kick drum)" although they told us that the toms were not included.

Yeah we ROCK'D
