Glenn Fricker has taken some time off his pursuit of the moose to do a series of how to record drums for metal, and I think he’s hitting the nail (or the drum) right on the head. This first part may actually be the most important. Before even getting sounds, you will make your life infinitely easier by just getting the setup right.


If you’re headed into a recording session this week, or ever, take the time to watch this video and absorb the ideas, even if you don’t do exactly what he says, understanding the concepts will allow you to be flexible with your own setups.

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.

  • Listen to Glen promote poor drum technique! Please ask Glen to stop spreading bad advice on how to play to naive drummers!…Or have him continue so the real drummers can keep the good jobs for themselves.LOL
