    I played my drums today after an almost 3 year hiatus.

    During the last seven years of recording drums with my bandmates in a home recording studio, I've always said the overhead mics were not in the best position to pick up the kit.

    Mounting the mics to the ceiling rafters helped eliminate three additional boom stands on the floor but it left the overheads in a permanent position with no way of moving them closer or farther apart from each other if the kit changed.



    Three cheap CAD95 series mics, two of which were always in the X-Y position were hung from the ceiling with the lines running up the wall behind the kit. Gravity worked against this set up throughout the years and all three mics began to droop towards the kit and often times were targets for my sticks.



    It was an uphill battle to convince our "head" recording engineer that a change was needed. Change is hard to accept for some people but in this case, I spoke up loud and clear that the overheads were never given the priority they deserved.

    It would take "hours" to resolve I was told, but in reality, it took 45 minutes to "fix". We walked away very happy as the result of the new change and there was no denying that the drums sound much cleaner now. Yesterday was a break through day for me.

    I compared my two Sabian rides, an HHX 20" Evolution Ride and an AAX 20" Dry ride. Our church band is playing at a benefit Saturday, so I want to use the best ride for that. The Evolution Ride won. Peace and goodwill.

    Completed my annual tear down, inspection and cleaning of my Catalina Maples. New heads top and bottom (G2 / G1) on the toms and also the snare (Evans ST Dry / Hazy 300). I'm still experimenting with snare tuning and snare wire.

    Exchanged some emails with a singer/guitar player who was looking for players. I'm hoping that this works out and I can end my 2 year hiatus. I think that it would be very good for my mental state to get back into a situation where I was playing with other people.
    Mmm... Saturns.
