"Gigging" is different from "touring". If the thing will spend most of its adult life in a trailer...get it an overbuilt case, don't spill anything on it, and don't sweat it too much. If you're just pulling it around town and not much further, it's not that big a deal. They're somewhat sturdy. Not a...

In smaller rooms especially, I've found that "overheads" are an uphill battle from the start. If you've absolutely gotta put microphones over the drums and you're in a small space, a small diaphragm condenser would arguably be the best tool for the job. One microphone can do it more often than you t...

A lot can be done with delays on a snare drum, in addition to or instead of reverb. A subtle, song-timed delay can add a depth to the drum more invisibly than reverb. In other words...without taking up extra space in the mix. When using delay and reverb together on a snare (plates are your friend he...

I frequently use an M/S pair for drums, but it's rarely in an overhead application. I've pretty much always got M/S happening a couple-five feet out in front, belly height. Depending on the mic(s) I use, I can often get some crazy detail out of the whole kit to the point of not caring to hang overhe...

Strap in the case that I don't feel like taking out. Saw about 2 weeks of touring. Always cared for. Th...

Needs: - Albany and CLOSE surrounding areas - 24+ track capability analog OR digital (RADAR is a definite plus!) - FULLY WORKING console and equipmen...
