We love possibilities !
I am delighted to offer you all these options and configurations.
The BongoMan Set-up
The LP Galaxy Giovani Series Bongo’s are a world class instrument. They sound absolutely gorgeous and offer a beautiful tonal range.
Each bongo head has its own independent & professional microphone which picks up the crisp dynamics and awesome ‘hoop crack’ associated with this fantastic instrument.
Attached to the bongo stand is a Paiste Splash cymbal. When played the cymbal helps accentuate build up’s and those big crescendo drops !
Watch and listen to TheBongoman set-up in action.
Accompanying every set up, I bring my famous ‘Toys’.
The ’Toys’ are a Woodblock, Cowbell, Tambourine and Brazilian whistle.
The best thing about the toys is that I can either play them on stage next to my bongos or interact with your customers and play them on the dance floor.
These fantastic instruments offer a deeper tonal range and when played with a Tribal rhythm they really get the crowd going. They look great on stage too !
Conga’s, Bongo’s & Cymbals
Possibly the ultimate organic set up ! These instruments totally compliment each other and offer a full variety of colourful choice and rhythmic possibilities.
I play three different Roland drum machines. Each are unique and extremely adaptable.
Below is the SPD-SX. This is great for triggering bespoke samples which I create in my studio.
This image shows the combination of both organic and digital percussion. This is TheBongoman set-up of traditional Bongo’s with the Roland SPD-DX drum machine and Sub-Mixer.
This set up offers an amazing variety of sounds and performance techniques.
It is also the most favoured set up when travelling abroad.
Roland Handsonic HPD-20
I love the Handsonic, it’s brilliant because it offers all the sounds I need in a very small and portable unit.
Performance wise, I play this instrument with my hands and sticks.
This video demonstrates the versatility of Handsonic’s powerful library.
David H Percussion
The images below give you a clear visual understanding of a full percussion set up. This includes, Bongo’s, Conga’s, Toys & Digital Percussion, all with independent microphones balanced in a Sub-Mixer.
This set-up is totally amazing and I can rock any venue all night entertaining the crowd with dazzling sounds and different style and sounds.
Output from my Sub-Mixer is either one Mono or two stereo ¼ inch Jack cables which can be connected to the front of house or the line-in / microphone channel of a club mixer.
Set Up Time & Additional Requirements
15 Minutes for The Bongoman & requires 2m x 2.5m performance area
45 Minutes for David H Percussion requires 4m x 2.5m performance area
05 Minutes for the Handsonic requires 1m x 1.5m performance area
There must be an electrical plug input at the exact place which the equipment is to be situated and an audio output cable.
I love performing all over the world. So, everything and anything is possible.
If required, additional equipment can be hired equipment locally, i.e. Congas and cymbals.
Which means, If I were to bring my Bongo’s + stand, Toys, effects unit and microphone cables, another case with weighing 25kg would be needed to be added in addition to my own personal baggage allowance.
90cm x55cm x36cm
This is the full David H Percussion set-up including bongo’s, conga’s, cymbals, stands, drum machine, microphones, toys and cables.
