    Nice Kevin
    I was more intrigued on how much bass you could hear from some of them. The Neumann U87 was super bassy

    Thanks for sharing the video. Man if I could afford mics like the U87 it would open up a whole new dimension to my ears while mixing my drum tracks but I’m a hobbyist at best but now I understand why these mics are $3,000+ each.

These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    Hi Tom!
    Donít mean to hijack this thread.
    Still trying to reach 10,000 hours on the kit and Iím hearing a lot of improvements on the tracks we recorded recently but itís a slow go at trying to keep motivated when thereís no place to play right now.

    Been messing around on some more original material at my buddyís home studio. Added a 2nd mic, a beta 52 to the kick and having fun mixing it with the Audix D6 thatís in the port.

    Itís a challenge to get the right blend between the two mics but settled on inverting the D6 at the DAW and compressing the heck out of the 52 since itís at the edge of the reso.

    Was thinking about making or buying a kick sub-woofer but had a 52 laying around and now got more punch to the bottom end.

    Got the D6 buried deep and itís favoring the right beater with a bit of laundry stuffed inside soak up some of the unwanted overtones. Going for a heavy thud but lacked a bit of the boom until now.
    Aquarian SKII on the batter and Remo Ebony on the reso.

    Still doing a weekly jam with a few guys to keep the live vibe going and looking forward to doing something different as far as music genre is concerned. Maybe find some other people to jam when we can get out again?
