Get a compass and put it next to your snare and play it.

It doesn't happen everytime you record snare. Just occasionally.

A lot of people have been recording snares from the side of the shell.

do you ever get radio signals with the snare? Once I got them in my fillings..sounded like a voice in my head one morning..never got it on the snare wires..but over the AC lines it happens quite a bit.. You have to put your head extremely close to the snare to hear the radio signals. It is there bu...

Oh, I misread the bit about the metal strainer creating a small magnetic field. Possible, I suppose. Never had it cause any issue for me that I could notice... Not being a coil of wire, but simply paralell wires, the induced magnetic field would not only be weak, but very axis-oriented. That is, it...

Hence why I use aluminium snare wires. And have done since 1992. And before any of you read any further, that's ALUMINIUM. *Not* aluminum. It's pronounced ALLEY MIN YUM. So please - don't give me any of this AL OOOH min UM crap. The american way is more fun to say. *Magnetizes bobbydj's walker*

It is caused by a slight magnetic field that is created when the snare drums snare moves at certain frequencies. This magnetic field pulls the mic at the diaphragm, and it keeps it from reaching the full negative amplitude.

Re: "WORLD CLASS" jazz recording

How did you get this tone? If you're looking to get this kind of jazz tone, I can help. How are you recording your jazz now? http://www.tedm.com/mp3s/jazz1009.mp3 . I can't figure out what is missing in the recording chain or what needs to be added to make a World Class sound happen. It stared out a...

One that comes to mind, The Police "Everything little thing she does is magic". Sting hits one of the most flat bass notes I've ever heard. You can really hear it on the 5.1 mix. It's in one of the breaks right before the chorus. Not sure which but I think it's the second one. Sting is the greatest...
