Joshua, I apologise. I haven't been too forthcoming with my replies.

I should have said that it is always a compromise where there is only one percussionist in a British brass band because they play many different styles of music.

I should also have mentioned that, for portability and economy of space, in both our very cramped venues as far as stage space goes, as well as in my small car, I gig with an 18" bass drum. This does limit the scope for imitating a concert bass drum over and above the limitations of playing with pedals. Despite the small diameter, it is, however still possible to strike then immediately release to get a resonant note, or alternatively to strike and momentarily hold the beater on the head. This applies both to individual strokes and to rolls.

I am working on more or less corresponding techniques with the hi-hat. As you may know, imitating clash cymbals is not too difficult when it is a simple case of clash-and-let-ring. Clash and damp is a whole lot harder, but it can be done, as I've been able to do, but only in fits and starts so far.
