Back in June I trekked to Atlanta to visit Zendrum HQ and take part in designing a personalized model EXP. Here are the fruits of that trip, in stunning flame maple and ocean blue fade.
There’s also a subtle purpleheart pinstripe running the perimeter of it, but it gets lost in the fade somewhat and is nearly impossible to see in these photos.
If the color looks familiar, it should! It’s meant to be a match for my ocean blue Sleishman acoustics.

For the past year I’ve been using this bassoon stand with my Zendrum. Prior to this I was using a modified guitar stand like the kind most Zendrummers wind up using, however I found out first hand how unstable those can be.
I experimented with violin, saxophone and mandolin stands among others in a search for a better, safer Zendrum stand. Eventually this led me to the Hercules stand.
While a little bit pricier and somewhat heavier than a guitar stand I feel this is the perfect solution for the Zendrum ZX (and probably the EXP model). The stand is rock solid and it fits the Zendrum like a glove. It cannot easily tip over and the Zendrum stays puts even when bumped around. If you’re looking for a solid Zendrum stand then I highly encourage you to check it out.
Here are some photos of the stand folded up and in action.

Over the past couple years, I’ve tried a huge number of different sound sources with my Zendrum, trying to the find the “perfect” live rig to suit most situations.
I’ve tried small and simple, large and complex, dedicated hardware modules as well as VST hosts. None of them were quite “right”. With any one rig, I’d have to sacrifice a level of one feature to gain in another.
The key features of a live rig are (to me):

I’ve added some found recordings from this time last year for a group called Lotus Dog. This was the first group I was in where I played nothing but Zendrum.
