    It's amazing. I'm 45 years old, and for the first time in my life, I'm in a band where we finally have EVERYTHING needed to record a full record in our own studio. "Back in the day" when I was a...

    Me likey. This looks like a cool snare. I agree - my SLP aluminum is SUPER easy to tune, and has such a "primary" tone to it. For a relatively "rookie", "noob" (etc.) engineer like me, having...

    Aluminum Tama SLP

    I bought a 14x5 Tama SLP Super Aluminum snare a few months ago, and man, I love it. I had been "visiting" this snare drum at the local GC for a couple of months - I kept coming back to it. I'd try...

    I use my VBX ruby fade kit for all gigs. I have a 6 piece, but gig with just a 4 (hate lugging all that crap, and don't really need all the toms for a gig). Actually, now that I think of it, I'm...

    Gord - the vocal mic is an M Audio Solaris. It does a nice job.

    We've been playing around with a kick mic, 57 on the snare, and the overheads, and have gotten a pretty decent sound. I might...

    I should clarify - the DP5a comes with an i5, D6, D4 and two D2s - so I'd have a good mic for the kick. Everyone has their own "flavor" of kick mic they like, but I think I'd be happy enough with...

    Opinions on drum mics for home studio?

    Hi gang,

    We (myself and engineer) have done a couple of rough mixes, and a little EQ on the kick and snare, and balancing of the two snare mics (more snare side, less batter) makes the kick and snare sound...

    Hey Gang,
    My band has been busily recording our next record. We actually tracked the drums in Sept., but being a group of guys with jobs/wives/kids/mortgages, free time is at a premium. We get...
