How to Record Heavy Drums, Part Deux: Overheads

I’m sure that ever since we brought you Glenn Fricker’s How To Record Heavy Drums Part 1 you’ve just been salivating for the next installment. So grab a towel and wipe your drool (to preserve your keyboard) as well as your drummer’s cuz here comes part 2!

This is especially cool as Glenn not only describes three different techniques for overhead miking but shoots out 3 different types of mics to do it with. Next week: how to level the drum throne so the drummer drools out of BOTH sides of his mouth.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
