That warm "fat" 70's snare sound

Hi Ken ,

Could you tell us a little about some of the big old warm 70's snare sounds you get . In particular some of the sounds on Yellow brick road .

I understand you use km84's and gates , but how dead were the rooms and did you take room mics or only close mics ? Did you use much under snare ? and can you remember much about the snare itself?

Those snare sounds are out of this world!

Thanks ,

Hi Brett, Nothing would give me more pleasure, well almost nothing, BUT I didn't do Yellow Brick Road, David Hentschel did. Sorry I can't help.
