Re: Drum Mics


Thanks alot
2 questions though, of Tainojim:
1. How is your batter head tuned?
2. I see you made a home made subkick out of that Sherwood subwoofer. How did you go about doing that? I liked the sound of it, and I think I could use that, and put my current bass drum mic inside, so it can be mostly low-end, with a little bit of attack.

Thanks again!

That was a sample from YouTube, not my kit. It looks to me like a bass trigger was adapted to that sub-woofer.

This is my kit before I made the studio:

Re: Drum Mics


Another good kick drum mic is the Audix D6, has a full low end punch while still giving the beater snap. Right now I'm recording rehearsals, with a three mic set-up; two 414's in XY for overheads & the D6. Sometimes I'll put an SM57 on the snare and an SM81 on the hats. Recently I started working on a song that uses the "Cool-Rods" and I'm doing a Mitch Mitchell snare thing with a lot of ruffles & flourishes (a lot of grace & ghost notes), am thinking about using an SM81 instead of the SM57... when we go to ProTools.

Re: Drum Mics


My son uses protools and SM57's all around my kit.

He's got them all qued just right. The hi hat Mitch used was the Zildjian 14" New Beat. He did however play many different makes of drums.

My favorite riffs from him are on "The Moon Turns the Tides, Genly Away" (In 1983 A Merman I Shall Be) & "VooDoo Chile" (the long version).

There were four songs done by The Experience. One was I Don't Live Today.

Can you guess what the other three were?

That's why I use the SM-57 drum mic kit. I also play Jazz and the mix comes out perfectly.

This mic is the most versitile of them all. It's impedence match can't be beat and they're affordable.

So unless I intend on going strictly into recording studio high end impedence, which the human ear can't detect, I'd stick with these.

The SM-57 is also great for guitar and vocals.

Re: Drum Mics


sorry for the delay -anyway, I give up on the other songs by the experience. I haven't listened to that stuff in years, gotta get Axis-Bold as Love... The SM-57's are a studio's best friend!! They are also great on guitar cabinets. I bought four in 1983 and still have two of them (had to replace the other 2 which shure did for $50). Are you familiar with Michael Giles? Original King Crimson drummer, that did some of the most tasteful snare work (similar to MM, but a bit more refined on the snare) that you'll ever hear -check out 'I talk to the Wind' and 'Moonchild', absolutely brilliant snare work.

Third Rock From The Sun, another where Mitch puts all of his riff's together.

King Krimson - "21st Century Schizoid Man" is another one of my favorites. I learned that one way back when it first came out. Now those are really fast rudiments.
