I was sittin in a studio with Eddie Kramer himself in a studio here in Copenhagen just 5 hours ago!
He was in Denmark for a Jimi Hendrix art gallery he is opening...
What an honor! He is truely a cool guy! He knows what he wants when it comes to recording! Hehe
He told us about how he likes to record drums nowadays:
Kick: 3 mics: 2 in (SM91 + B52) + 1 out (47FET or similar)
Snare: B56 on top + KSM141 on the bottom or AKG 451
HH: KSM141 or similar
Toms: SM98 or 421
(more "standard"/boring I think he said)
OHs: 3 U47
(left, right, center) into 3 tube pultecs for top eq (I forget which version)!!!
Front of kit: C24
Room mic: U87
, 414 or any good condenser I think he said...
Oh, he liked the KSM32 on bass amps as well as the 47FET of course...
And like DB said: Recording tracks like "All Along the Watchtower" was done on an Ampex 1/2" 4 track to a Scully 1" 12 track (which he said sounded like sh*t, but Jimi loved it cause he suddenly had 8 more tracks to play with!) to an Ampex 2" 16 track.
Maybe I'll think of more later...
