    Default Pictures from album tracking - Mapex Orion Limited Edition inside!

    Hey guys, as I mentioned in my other thread HERE, I haven't been active recently. But I come baring gifts...

    My band started recorded our debut album in July after about a month of pre-production. The drum tracking spread over a solid week. I got the opportunity to record the album using a simply amazing Mapex Orion Limited Edition (10 worldwide). Dayum.

    Alongside were some tasty snare drums, including an 14"x7" RCI Starlite Acrylic.

    Anyway I will let the pictures do the talking:

    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Mr.Drums NI for his help with this kit. His service is stellar.

    Anybody in Northern Ireland, or even the Republic, should def check him out.
