Re: Best $300 Keyboard

definitely the M-Audio AXIOM series of keyboards.... best combination of affordability/advanced features, IMO. I'm using the 61-key version right now, and i absolutely love it.

Re: Looking to Purchase a Hand-Held Recorder

Another vote for the Edirol R-09HR - incredibly high quality (higher quality than most people even need), with every option you could want.

I got mine from Sweetwater for about 375, you can find...

Re: Metallica - Death Magnetic. They're at it again. (heads up)

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hello Gavin - do you ever have a problem with your toms detuning by themselves? I've got my 10" S-class tom at a medium-low tuning, and after nearly every song, some of the tuning lugs are loose and...

Hey Gavin!

As you progressed through your career, did you find that your improvisational nature on the kit presented itself as a challenge? When I practice here at home, I'm continuously trying...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hey there Gavin!

When you're in a live situation with Porcupine Tree, does your sound engineer place ambient mics anywhere in the venue? I'd imagine you get a much more "live" sound by mixing a...

Hey Gavin!

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hello Gavin!

I have a question about your mic setup - do you ever find it necessary to mic your cup-chimes more closely? I know you're using some pretty high-end overheads, but i've tried some...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hello Gavin :)

I have a question about bass drum sound - When micing a kick, do you prefer to use a smaller diameter hole on the resonant side? My S-Class kick is 17.5x20, and i'm using a 6"...
