Pensado’s Place – Into the Lair: Mixing Big FAT Snares

Dave Pensado, as far as I know, has never mixed a metal album in his life (correct me if that’s wildly inaccurate). He’s known for records with Christina Aguilera, T-Pain, Mariah Carey, and Kenny G (though if you saw Kenny G without his saxophone, you might mistake him for a metalhead from the hair).

But a big, FAT snare drum is a universal need, like an addiction to crack (which you’ll find between 900hz – 2khz), and Dave is your dealer.

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.
