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:
