Re: How important is it to mic the bottom of a snare?

+1000% on the Beyer M88. Hands down,fave mic ever made. Works on everything. I still have 2 old ones that work,2 others have perished mid-take in the last 15 years. I love the M69 almost as much,but they're nowhere to be found. I've yet to find a Beyer microphone that disappoints. Wish i could find ...

Re: How important is it to mic the bottom of a snare?

I do a beta 56 on top,and a sm98 underneath. I have an old Slingerland Krupa chrome over brass (the deeper one),and track and sum together flat with a soundcraft 200b into 1 track on interface. 80% top,20% bottom. A little goes a long way. Also use PZM's on floor under snare,and floor tom on seperat...

Re: Overdrive pedals educate me

I love my EH Soul Food,it can go from nice to kookoo (I prefer the latter). The Malekko B:assmaster is a piece of magick (fuzz/overdrive,and a bunch of octave/filtering options) Sounds great on guitar,and RULES on Bass. The Malekko Helium is a fuzz/octave combo that rules my world,can be dialed in s...

Re: What do you hear in this vocal?

Tube mic/Ribbon singing quiet,too close to the diaphragm-you can hear it folding. Tone is nice,minus the folding thing. Dry. I love dry. Sounds like something hit front end of input a tiny bit too hard. Maybe it was tweaked to sound that way. Dunno. Tiny bit less "folding" ,and a little bit more air...

Re: RIP Eddie Van Halen

I feel sad for Alex too. I don't think he's ever been in a band without Eddie! And when you heard both of them (or either of them) you always knew exactly who it was. I think its awesome Eddie started off on drums,but gave them to Alex,cause he wanted them more. Then started up with the stringed th...

Re: Polarity Flip as Net Positive?

Fun with Polarity/comb filtering/phase cancellation! Yes! Cool thing I stole from Beinhorn/Chris Shaw. Loud JCM 800 100 watt with a Telecaster. 4 mic's close mic'd and blended (Through a BBE 822?) A 414 between 6-12 feet out,polarity flipped. Had me move the mic closer /farther until the very thin t...

Re: I'm Doing All My Own Backing Vocals

How can I make it sound less like me singing along with myself using only analogue techniques? Yep, done this many times. Just mimic various singers on the different tracks . . most of us singers have a few favorites that we can mimic. And it's fun too. HELL YESS! Gotta do the dance/moves,as well. ...

Crack The SKy-All of it. Saw them open for Atlanta Rhythm Section in 78 at The State Theater. (Jay Ferguson-Thunder Island in the middle). Wrecked my 8th grade brain. Still stands proud and strong. Fukkin amazing band. The live album's a good place to start.

Re: Andy Martin, Knopfler, Buckingham..who are some awesome fingerstyle players?

any classical or flamenco guitarist. when i started to learn the guitar i was already playing bass with fingers. the pick and hand/wrist motion seemed very unnatural (still does). so i learned to play classical guitar on a nylon string guitar. i still play that way to this day even though i mostly ...

Re: Handheld that sounds like like an LDC

I love my Se Electronics V7 BFG's. (See the Tape op Review) . I track everything live at once,and the room/band bleed is actually usable,and complementary. I think they have an aluminum diaphragm,and the presence peaks are in different frequency ranges than the usual suspects. The Heil Pr35 is prett...
