    Tyger's Saturns

    Man...I was posting a thread just like this almost a year ago saying how much I loved my Sonor 3007's! hahahaha. Well, almost a similar story here, I was in the hunt for a 16" Floor Tom for my 3007's when I came across a Mapex Saturn in Cherry red sparkle, 10, 12, 14, 14.5, 22. They were in...

    Dealing with Spill/Bleed

    Hey Folks, Just wanted to get some tips and advice on dealing with spill/bleed when recording, mainly from my snare mic. With my set up the hats are fairly close to the snare as with most set ups. I've raised the hats as high as possible without feeling uncomfortable to play. I'm using an Audix...

    Mapex Black Panther Premium Series Steel Snare

    Hey Folks, Anyone use this snare? Thoughts? I was originally looking for a maple snare but a friend of mine doesn't use this snare. I have it for the weekend but it's too late to play it, just gave it a few whacks...sounds like it'll cut nice. It's got a few scratches here and there but...

At first I was looking at mic packages from various audio companies but I found there was always one weak mic or two within those kits so I started at looking at piecing together mics...

    Paiste twenty 20" vs 22" ride

    Hey everyone! I'm just about complete (for now) on my cymbal set up. All I'm waiting for is to get a dedicated 20" or 22" ride. I've been going back and forth on the the 2 rides and I always seem to go back to the 20" mainly because of the bell. Unfortunately there are no 22" to try at my local...

    Hey folks, I've been searching around and doing some research on mixers and multi-track recorders for some home studio recordings. I came across the Zoom R16 (and also read some threads on here about it) and decided that it is the best unit that suits my needs. Before I pull the trigger in a...
