Hey piers!
Let’s start adding some spicyness to our comparisons!
Here’s a wide picture of how a mono room miking can sound, also with a tasty harmonic distortion on top.

Season 2, Episode 3 – Comparing mic positions on HiHat

Hi guys!
We’ve already experienced how deeply mic positioning affects the mic response . . . So we really needed to try it out on a cymbal, too.
No doubt you’ll be surprised, once again, by the huge differences.
Check it out!

Season 2, episode 2 – Comparing HiHat Microphones

Hey piers!
We are back with a new, amazing close up on cymbal miking: we chose hi hat to compare the microphones response with a mono, closer miking than the overhead one.
As you might already know, we love to try out a very wide variety of microphones, so check it out !

Season 2, Episode 1 – Comparing Overhead microphones

Hello Piers!
We are back!
We reserved a whole (yet shorter) season to the microphones that mostly affect the overall color of the drumkit; with a new amazing guest, here we go, starting with the overheads.
Enjoy!

This is the end of the first season.
While second season is on its way, we give you this little, useful trick for drum gating.
This kinda moves away from our first episodes contents: cause yes, that’s right. So much more is yet to come.
