Re: Another drum recording/mixing thread

Overheads first. capture the kit as well as possible with those two mikes. Add others to reinforce the overheads, or for effects sends. The traditional hierarchy would be...

Re: So how's this for bitter?

Did you try homerecording.com? I don't see a thread like you're describing over there, and they are a pretty polite group (if you don't ask the same question that appears six times on the front page,...

Re: A few recording questions

Use fewer mics, or, at least, only use the signal from the toms' close mics as effects sends. The recorderman setup will get a great stereo image of the whole kit with four mics, so as long as the...

Re: New Breed for a relative beginner?

My instructor used New Breed almost immediately, just using the patterns as sticking drills. It doesn't have to be about independence.

Re: Any problems wearing both earplugs and ear muffs?

Re: Looking to get into drum recording

I advice new guys to spend their money where the sound is. Physical mixer controls are nice, but they don't affect the sound. So, get an interface wit height channels (I gathered you're up against...

Re: Amplified Bass drum sound problem.

The first thing I thought was that lying the mic in the drum is putting it in a node, and/or introducing a proximity effect. I was called upon to record a band once, and was surprised to find an...

Re: Need Help w/ Screw on Floor Tom

If you can get off the other lug screws, and you can get off the opposite head, remove all the screws that work right, unscrew the misbehaving lug from the shell, remove the hoop with the "bad" lug...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

I have the Kaces HD series. I don't know if they are available any more, but they are fantastic. Good hardware, they fit suspension mounts well, and they feature a heavy, semi rigid padding that...

Re: Snare for a $200 budget

All good suggestions, I have a '70s Supraphonic and a Musashi that each were under $200 by a good margin, maybe just at with new heads.

Steel snares offer great bang-for buck (pun intended). The...

Re: Drum Dial tuning

These are all fair points. I have one, rarely use it, but still consider it money well spent.

It is also a good training tool for the new drummer. I found I would get myself into trouble tuning by...

Re: Reality check!

A bar we used to play in NYC mandated the use of their house kit. It was a decrepit Export,...

Re: "Nobody cares about the drummer, except for the Rush guy."

98.72% of people won't notice if the guitarist stops playing.

68.149% of statistics cited on the Internet are made up on the spot.

Re: need some info/help from the Tama guys

Probably. Most multiply drums sound pretty similar. Heads and tuning will make way more difference than the wood involved.

Yes, arguably. The SCs were all made in Japan, built just the same as...
