@ Sigma , what parts of the kick drum‘s sound are the AKG and RE20 each taking care of?

The inside AKG is catching the beater , the beater head..and resonance of initial hit..the outer RE20 is sustain and rumble flap

Also on Bass guitar & Electric guitar.

Almost reminds me of a ribbon mic for some reason. Never hyped just great and musical.

C37 on acoustic guitar can be a really amazing thing. Underrated all round mic IMO. Sounds amazing on guitar cabs too.

It’s my absolute go-to mic for percussive strummy guitar parts when you need to soften them but still have the brightness poking through the arrangement.

This, and the fact that it's also very popular for snare, make me think it might have some built-in tape sim and I should probably take a closer look at it. And start saving...

I have both the Sony C38 & C48, I think the C48 could be better suited for acoustic as the top end is a bit more open then the C38 but who knows the C38 could be the perfect choice for what your going for.

I’m always swapping out kik Drum mics depending on what sound I’m going for, I use

Yamaha MZ-204 for inside kik
Neumann Fet 47 for outside kik
Sony C38 for outside kik
Akg D12E for semi outside kik

For acoustic I use a Neumann U87 & km 84, & sometimes a flea 12 and or Sony C48.

For electric guitar amp a C38 is great.

I think the C38 is an overall great mic for pretty much all instruments, I can see it used on horns, guitars, bass, snare, kik, congas, drum room, etc...

They had a video person there too but I haven't seen any of the footage yet. Snippet attached below of a ruffmix. Drums come in @ about 25 seconds. This was a fun session. I like it when guys play live like this and just nail it.

I like that a lot. I can’t find them amongst the other Rose Room results on Google- have you got any links to their website please, Mr Cat?

Thanks man. And no...sorry I don't have much on them. They are a newly formed duo. More of a collaborative side project for both the musicians in that clip. The drummer has another band which is doing quite well here in Colorado called "Banshee Tree" and the keyboardist is a session player in Los Angeles if I'm not mistaken. You should be able to find a little more info if you search RoseRoomMusic on Instagram though. They post pictures on their frequently.

Here for the gear
 

Here's a few photos of my budget-minded setup. Audix D6 on the kick, SM57 on the snare top, Samson CO2 on the snare bottom, 421 on the rack tom, and a CAD M179 on the floor tom. Hats are mic'd with an SM7B. Overheads are a pair of Røde NT-2's from the 90's and the rooms are a stereo pair of Cascade Fatheads running into an ART preamp and compressor.

The kit itself is a 70's Pearl kit and the snare is a Supraphonic.

Hoping that’s the new ART trans pre and comp and you’ve got samples!!!

I did a rcorderman once, with a 622 and a 635a.
Sounded interesting but would have needed some close mics for impact.
But nicely open, with a wooden quality to the tone.
Speaking of which:

Sorry ´bout the tangent. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Yes, not much meat in those DM622's, but a lovely sizzle.

Although I found that, with a generous bass boost, there's more on tap than with the EV.

Let’s Mic this up!

I never seen a kit like this so I wanted to post it here.
I don’t Mic the bottom Toms but I’d certainly give it a try here.

1. Take an SM57.
2. Put it back in your mic closet
3. Throw the North drums in a dumpster.
4. Set the whole dumpster on fire.

They look like they would sound horrible.
Or, perhaps a new kit for Blueman Group

I was thinking,
Kik in, D12E
Kik Out, Fet 47
Snare top, Sony C38
Snare bottom, Sony C38
Tom & floor top & Bot U87’s
Stereo Overheads, U67’s
Stereo Room, M49’s
And maybe a MD441 to capture the bounce off the floor.

Yes and yes. If you like the sound tupperware makes then you’ll love north drums.

I had forgotten about Staccato. I don't think any kind of creative mic technique would help here.

They look like concert toms left too close to a heat source!
