Drum section

Home | Setup | Drum section | Recording rooms | Mastering | Pics | Projects | Rates
The section includes a full drum kit, independently miced (2 XY condenser overheads, double dynamic mics on snare, reversed phase, one dynamic for each tom, a bass drum mic). All microphones are gated and compressed before committing them to tape. We typically record drums on 9 tracks, but electronic drums have been known to be recorded on two tracks only, with very good results

Mics on drums:
  • Shure 47 (2)
  • Shure Beta 58 on bass drums
  • Shure condensors 81 for overheads or
  • AKG 1000 condensors for overheads
  • AT drumkit mics on toms
