    Where have all the acoustic drums gone ?

    I suppose it depends much more about the kit itself, the drummer, and then the typical room /mics and such. But then there is also the style of music. Heavy rock drums take a bit more to get huge and up front, but there are tools to deal with that. In my experience, the toughest thing to get...

    Where have all the acoustic drums gone ?

    I have a 9 year old daughter. She thinks similar to me oddly enough. It's quite precious. We have the porch lights off and saving all of the candy for ourselves. Fuck your typical halloween suburbanite weirdos. We have our own smores ready in the fireplace. LOL

    Recording violin

    I am thinking of strapping a ribbon to the top of her head with gaffers tape, and using the overhead KSM's for the room, and maybe an LDC in front.... LOL Thanks for all of the input guys! I suppose it is just going to be one of those trial/error things. Never met the player, or heard the...
