I heard lots of strange comments about the idea of the throne thumping concept. I wanted to try it out myself to see how it really feels. Recently I began using an in ear monitor monitor system. Although I get great bass and kick out of my Westone 30 in ears, as a drummer I really wanted to feel the low end around me as I play. With each strike of the kick shooting through your body just makes me an even tighter player. The low strokes of the bass guitar blow me away everytime. I am currently using Westone in ears and the Throne thumper running through a Berhinger headphone mixer amp. I can adjust volumes between in ears and the Thumper running stereo from my aux mix.
Any low frequencys dialed in from aux mix are picked up through the Throne Thumper, ie Bass guitar, Toms etc. What a great idea for drummers and bass players.
