Default Re: The legendary Steve Gadd.

thanks Auger for the flowers - thank you so much.

As for Steve Gadd and micing and strange sound of drums: Yes, I fully agree, this is really the point.

Unbelievable this year at PASIC: I sat on his drums and tried out - and some other drumsets too from great players like Billy Kilson or John Blackwell or Virgil Donati.
Just unbelievable, how all sets sounded so well and Steve's Set sounded really crappy! then he started to regulate with the techs - the Snare - and it became even more crappier. Then he was happy and no wonder: at the clinic everything sounded PERFECT!!! It's really the micing. Or take his Award-celebration DVD: The rehearsal Sound and the performance Sound - what a big difference...
