Thom sings into an RE20. The Basement production was nice.

It's EV RE20 in that video, he sings into Neumann (looks like U47) in the soft pieces - piano-vocal solo, actually there's another thread about it right now.

And you can watch the whole concert and also many other great artists recorded in the same manner, here:

From The Basement : Artists

This project by Nigel Godrich has also been discussed around here, before.

In the video, I can say with 100% confidence that he is in fact singing into an RE 20

And you are 100% right.

I am interested what are those tom (?) mics over the drumset, you can see in the picture on the "From the basement" website. There is one mono Neumann overhead and two strange looking mics beside it, that look like deconstructed heaphones... Any ideas, anyone?

those are Coles 4038's. probably more of a 'whole kit' ambient micing array. they seem relatively closer to the cymbals imo.

Ah, great, thanks, I saw it now in the video - they are really close to the cymbal. Toms got their 414's, Nice mic selection they have there...

In "Nude" he has a crazy nasal sound that I'm less than certain how it was done. Very interesting album.

yeah its really sounds tight, when he jumps to the bottle condenser at the end of "all i need you" you can really hear the difference. i wonder why they didst use 2 RE-20s ?

Stereo Ribbon OVH drums

Do you think overhead ribbon would replicate IN RAINBOWS drums.
I dont have a ribbon on hand so i cant figure out.

I sang into one in a shoot out. (R121) it was vintagy and sounded smooth.

I also recorded a jam in a 60% dead room with an iphone and the drums were played lightly. IMHO i thought it sounded really good.

The iphone has a rca ribbon looking image on the record app. (maybe has its characteristics?)

This is why I am comming up with this assumption.
Thanks

No, I think it's mostly the drums & tuning, the drummer, playing lightly but firmly and a nice pretty dead room.

The guy sounds like a drum machine -really tight and plays strange and "inhuman" (in the good meaning of the word) grooves!

Ribbons might help and a mono U47 overhead wouldn't hurt anyone I've also seen Nina Simone live at Bordeux 1976 DVD and the drummer had a mono RE20 as drum overhead and the drum sound had some resemblance to one kind of "In Rainbows" drums - the dry, tight, mid-rangey sound...

They obviously close mic the cymbals with ribbons - so you get separately only cymbals and smooth sound because of the ribbons, then you get a nice dimension of the whole kit from the "ueber mic" U47 and the rest is classic drum micing approach as I can see... You also need Nigel Godrich to mix it...

Or better - forget all this, sure - ribbons as overheads are classic (altgough they were used as "cymbal" mics there) - but - invent your own sound...

I agree on RE20 for much of the session, but not videotape, clearly a different type of mic.

That's the Neumann (U47 or U48), which is pretty much Thom's main vocal microphone for most of his work, I believe
