When do you use that tom to the left of the snare for mainly Don ?
As part of tom fills, where it fits in with the others, or for more specialized hits not necessarily combined with the other toms ?

Yes? All of the above? My left hand is a spaz, so sometimes it wants to lead on the hi-hat, play fills on the left, or break up fills with left hand accents. I've had a tom or floor tom on my left for over 20 years, so it just feels like part of a "normal" kit to me now.

Nice work! I think you need one of our stereo couplers for your BM9s....

Stewart! I think more than that, I really just need to get a pair of your new mounts - I like the idea of keeping the mics separated for any kind of positioning I may need, but I could really use some proper mounts for them. I'll email!

Yes you do! A pair of these will help a lot.

very simple recording setup today for a modern song with a retro fat sound.

kick – violet design amethyst vintage > tlaudio 5051 comp + eq
snare – sm57 > aml1073 eq > stam adg76 comp
tom/ride – lrm2 > la610 comp + eq
kick beater – mje hulk > gap pre73 > klark teknik k76 all buttons

the kick beater mic is something i saw at one of the kush audio videos. he gets some amazing drums and showed a mic next to the kick meter. i tried it out of curiousity today and it sounds very interesting. all buttons in and the snare explodes!
and socks on the ludwig snare always work! hehehe!
kick sounds not to good, needs work ...

Kick (and kit all around) sound great! I used to do that beater thing with a Gefell UM70 years ago, not sure why I stopped doing it!

Bosphorus, Dream and Zildjian cymbals.

Kick 1: AKG D12E > API 312 > Great River Harrison 32 EQ
Kick 2: CM27 (sorta like a U47FET) > JLM Baby Animal BA4
Snare Top: Shure SM57 > API 312 > Great River Harrison 32 EQ
Snare Bottom: Shure SM7B > JLM Baby Animal BA4
Hats: Josephson c42 > JLM Baby Animal BA4
Crush: Royer 121 > Chandler Germanium > Purple MC77
Toms: AKG C414B-ULS > API 312
Overheads: Coles 4038 > JLM99V > CAPI LC53
Room Stereo: CM46 (EF86 tube with M7 capsule) > SSL 9000 clone > ELI Distressors
Side Snare: AKG D112 > JLM Baby Animal BA4
Mono Overhead: MV-563 clone with Neumann M55K capsule > Altec 9470A















Would love your opinion on the altec 9470a on kick in/out, snare, and mono OH. If you have the time...

Any chance you could post some 9470a samples of those sources? I'd be appreciated.

yes it's the top floor of my studio, an old barn. The room is 26' x 22' 18' high at the peak.
The panels angle off the back wall about 11-12"

I'm happy with the sound of the room. Thanks for checking it out

It looks great. It could be an add for home studio hero. It looks like a real home studio in an average sized room in an average house and not something a millionaire had custom built in his house. I mean this in a very good way.

Is it just one room in your home? Looks like it

Thank you!

The room was originally built for home theater use, but I've turned it into a home studio. It's taken about 7-8 years of investing and upgrading to get it to this point.

you always have great drum setups.

do you happen to have any pics of the sessions for the ten commandos album ?

i've been listening to that again on vinyl all week, sound so great.

you guys got some great drum, guitar, bass and vocal sounds on that record.

I do have photos from the first couple rounds of Ten Commandos tracking; I'll dig through the archives and see what I can dig up. Those were FUN sessions!
