Equipment Management Notice

Drums:

Drums at UTC by far take the most abuse of everything, especially with all the moving people do with them. In order to keep parts on the sets and to not lose them I’d ask that you try and keep the sets where they are (green in the practice room, blue on the stage) I don’t have a problem with swaps for your practice time if you want a different tom setup but when you are done please put them back as is. Again, from now on to maintain order (or some semblance of it) the blue set will be on the stage and the green set will be in the practice room. I’ll be reheading the toms every semester or so unless something drastic happens. Please let me know if a piece goes missing or a part breaks asap. Feel free to message or email me about it, I’ll usually reply immediately. Cymbals… This is where I personally tend to get peeved the most, mainly because cymbals I buy tend to get destroyed fairly quickly. If you have your own cymbals, please use those :). Remember that all this stuff is for everyone to use, so please treat it better than you would treat your own stuff. You get annoyed when you walk into the practice room and the drums are scattered everywhere from the previous person, so please dont do it yourself. I typically replace cymbals every year, I will be doing this year’s soon. We don’t have the money at our disposal to buy cymbals 2/3x a year. ・。゚[̲̅$̲̅(̲̅ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°̲̅)̲̅$̲̅]。゚.* Also please dont remove wingnuts and felts from the set and then not put them back later. Otherwise I’ll be upset: (ノ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ノ︵┻┻ . Sticks are in the space for your using, but honestly if you have your own use them. I’ll check every night I’m in the space for if there are sticks out and replace them if not.

String Instruments:

If you break some strings on something, let me know and I’ll restring it that night if I’m going to be in the space (75% chance, im there a lot more than you realize). Both basses are typically in the practice room during the day, and I’d prefer it to stay that way. So if you use the bass (either one) please put it back in the practice room when done. Same with the guitars, try and put them in the practice room after you are done.

Studio:

If you really wanna learn the studio, talk to me and I’ll prolly let you tag along to recordings. Also just come to sound class. Also I get a lot more emails than you think about the studio, so I’ll get back to you ASAP when I get something.

Amps:

Please turn stuff off.

That’s all I got, thanks guys.

PS: Take care of stuff or RIOT ╰〳 ಠ 益 ಠೃ 〵╯
