Jeff Ocheltree: Trust Your Ears – Drum Tech Explorations
Sep 10 2016
A complete guide to the care, set-up and maintenance of the drum kit from one of the world’s most established and experienced drum techs. Ocheltree uses nine different kits, including an appearance of the legendary John Bonham Ludwig kit. With the aid of nine different guest drummers, Ocheltree explains the variations in sound and approach. Learn to set up, mic and tune the kits, as you train your ears to find that magical personal drum sound.
Jeff Ocheltree transitioned from replaceable “roadie” to invaluable “drum tech” by being the first person to take complete care of all aspects of the drums, in the glory days of such legends as Bonham and Cobham. In his first instructional DVD, he discusses his experiences and teaches techniques valuable to drum techs and all drummers – with hands-on examples using nine different kits and nine drummers. Jeff also discusses the unique bronze drums he makes from recycled cymbals. As a special bonus, John Bonham’s kit used in Zeppelin recordings appears on screen for the first time ever, and Bonzo’s settings, tunings and mic placements are revealed!
