Ahhhh, I see! That makes sense, cool technique. Thanks for that!Hi Alannah
I was listening to "The Game" from the new album, is it just my ears or are you using some funny stick thing to do those snare rolls in the beginning?
No - I do actually play them with a normal stick - but the dynamics are exaggerated by a compressor plug-in. I drop the stick and let it bounce a few times - but instead of it getting quieter towards the end as it naturally does - the compressor brings the final notes up in volume so it sounds a bit strange.
Is it this snare on the Insurgentes album? Because particularly on "No Twilight Within The Courts of the Sun" it sounds ridiculously good !!!Thanks. The snare drum on that album (and pretty much all of the ones I did until about 2013) is my old 1982 Yamaha 9000 14" x 5" snare drum.
It's an absolute beauty!
