Hey Billy! Been watching your "Voices In My Head" video the last couple of days and must say I am blown away by your musical playing and the great insight to your process. Out The Door is sounding great with my morning cofee:-)

My question is about how you get such a great sound, especially your snare. Are the edges custom to to your liking or are they similar to a standard Collectors series snare? Re-rings?

Any insight to the recording process would be great, particularly overhead mics, bass drum tuning and mic placement.
