NinjaDiscoPunch Posted December 21, 2012 Share Posted December 21, 2012 More importantly, a Hemispheres/YYZ related question. A silly technical question, but it's bugging me a little. First, Hemispheres. So, at the minute-59 mark of the song, we hear a distinct twinkling sound with a galloping kind of rhythm, like a triangle or something. And Neil Peart did have triangles on his set around that time...http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7134/7526506168_efc527af22_z.jpgBut there are other percussion items on his set that could make a similar sound.He had crotales mounted atop his tubular bells...http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2097/2126130903_e0cd40a8fd_z.jpg?zz=1...there was a set of orchestra bells in the ballpark of his timbales and concert toms...http://stupuola.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/neil-peart.jpg...and possibly the bell of his ride cymbal (although I am skeptical of this). I am leaning more towards the crotales, but they seem inconvenient due to their placement, since at the 2:06 mark he moves over to the hi hats with the same rhythm, and that would be a considerable distance to travel in such short time! The orchestra bells would seem more likely, but then again...Another question: What note/pitch/tone/whatever is it exactly? I would like to make the addition of the mystery percussion to my current kit, but I want to know exactly what it is I need to buy so I don't end up with a kit bigger than Neil's! I know crotales each have a different tune/note, so I want that one, not thirteen! Is there any way we can figure it out if we haven't already?The same goes for the sound at the very beginning of YYZ. I just can't think of what it is. I am leaning more towards triangle on this one, but the question still stands... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
