Default Studio set up

Recorded over the weekend, (2 more bed tracks left) Anyway I assembled this cymbal set up over the past few months pretty much for studio work and it sounds like a dream :)

THE RECORDING IS AT POST #16

Left to right:
18" Hammerax Indigo Ultra dark crash (Sounds very gongy) Or 20" Indigo dark Crash. Also may substitute a variety of splashes here.

14" K custom Dark hats
17" K dark thin crash
18" K custom dark medium crash
22" Z Power ride, I have tried 6 or 7 different rides and this one sounds the best by a long shot in the studio for rock music.

4.5X14 Brady, Marri snare

Pearl BLX drums (Studio set). Unless I am going to be in there for extended periods, then I use my Gretsch.

Thats a great looking setup, very clean! How do you like the hammerax? I've heard of them, but have never heard any. I'm just asking in relation to your other cymbals.

I like them quite a bit. They are stand alone cymbals though. very dark. but great for short burst effects.

Sweet, looks very comfy. I don't think anyone can bash on you for using a Z custom ride since you went through several rides and liked this one best. Do you have any drum tracks that we could hear?

There is nothing I like more then a room with cords strung about everywhere. That is not sarcastic either. I love recording!

Me too! I get a very "relaxed" feeling in that environment, like when you go to a friend's house while they're folding laundry, and they have piles all over the couch, the chair, the table, etc...very casual. When I'm in a studio that bundles the cords all together close to the kit and runs them to the board in a bunch, it makes me a little uneasy. Maybe it's the dis-ease of somebody else's tidyness obsession...

Thanks, and yes the recording came out really well. finishing my tracks tomorrow night. We covered 2 songs saturday, 1 by Larry Norman from the 70's and a phil Keagy cover as well. Drums recorded great.

I believe the Aquarians are perf 2's yes. they are the studio techs and are fairly warn.

I have sound files but they won't upload for some reason to putfile.... will try again later.


The studio is attached to his home but is a seperate building where he does Recording and photography.

There are dozens of audio hosters, why don't you try for instance boommp3? http://boomp3.com/

I think that one is decent, at least i've been able to both upload and listen to files.

AGAIN, He comes through............. Thanks man.

Here is a very rough, completely unedited studio mix. Vocals are just a scratch track so Parker could give instructions as to the layout of the song as it was changed 3 times in the last hour , lol

Thanks again Michael

That was really good. I feel like you really drove this song forward well if ya know what i mean? Really nailed every fill perfect to the music also. I also like the little section where you were playing offbeat open hihats, I don't know why but that really stuck in my head.

For some reason though, I can't see the pics, I can't on like half the pictures posted here now, I don't know why.

I can see them now, beautiful cymbals, really wierd combination, but it works very well. Dark k's and the brightest of the bright. Your right the Z sounded very suited to the music. And that Brady is insanely beautiful.
