Wanted to report that the new record is almost done. I recorded the drums this week and its sounding wonderful. We have to wrap up the vocals and then we’ll be able to turn this bad boy in. Below - I’ve posted some photos from the studio (nerdy mic placement photos) and a video from the little vocal booth where I setup some of my drums. We’ll keep updating more photos and videos as we come to the finish line.
I was recording in a vocal booth and I turned my iphone on and decided to give y’all a guided tour of my drum set as well as smack the drums for good measure. I am pretty sure we had 9 or 10 mics in that little booth.
This is the drum set up for the currently titled ‘River’. The kick drum below is an old ludwig that Andrew uses when we play live. Its got an insane amount of low-end and I’m super happy how it came out.
This photo is from Andrew while in the control room. Dave Downham, the engineer from Gradwell House, is tweaking the four mics we placed on the above mentioned kick drum above.
Here is another photo from the vocal booth. As you can see, I’m using this amazing little Gretsch kick drum that my good friend Scott lent me. Its from the Catalina series and the low-end was insane in that little room. It was as if the whole room became the kick drum!
