    Drums were recorded to tape, fun stuff
    [TABLE="class: tborder, width: 100%, align: center"]
    [TR]
    [TD="class: alt1, bgcolor: #F5F5FF"]This is an over drive comparison using settings that I felt were appropriate to demonstrate sounds from each pedal. Included in the demo were Way Huge Red Lama, Maxon OSD-9 (not od9), MXR Custom Modified Over Drive and Ibanez Tube Screamer TS 808. Each were played through a JCM 900 into a 1960a cabinet, mic'd with a Royer R-101 via Daking 500 pre amp.

    Drums were recorded to 1" tape like this
    Snare top 512c,beta 57
    snare bottom daking 500, sm7b
    kick la 610,d112
    overheads Audix adx50
    rack tom digimax fs pre, audix d1
    floor tom digimax fs, md421

    That was a nice demonstration Steve. It certainly demonstrated that any one of the selections would be perfectly adequate for most any recording. The video is terrific! Very pro-looking. Nice flair (I'm not talking about a lens flare). And so the purpose of this was... what? That you obviously know how to record. That analog recording of drums is still sweet. Good production is good production and this was a fine production. So I guess a lot of folks will have something to glean from this.

    I never heard the lyrics?

    Remy I do this for a living, I run russomusic.com, this is just one of the things I do to promote the website. I got a 573 today that I am running my Royer through with the beta 57 through a Daking, Mesa Boogie demo. It sounds sick! If you go to russomusic.com and go to resources that is what I do, travel and write reviews on companies and do demos

    You've got a nice gig going there. Impressive I might add. I'm intrigued by what you've done. Keep up the great work. You might also want to add a touch of VO (voiceover) to actually announce to people what they are currently listening to? It's the logical thing to do and being an audio guy, you should be good at that. I.e. " you are now listening to this and that and the other"...

    I guess I'm too lazy to do the same thing?

    my pet peve is talking in demos, I am going to try and hold out on that, if you watch the orange amp demo I did I put subtitles in it, I am finishing up a mesa boogie demo in the same vein right now. Thanks!

    So you're making audio video demonstration videos for the hearing impaired? Good thinking. I really love television stations that are trying to utilize voice recognition for closed captioning. It makes for some great laughs. Come on Steve, you probably have a nice voice and you know that S E X sells. I mean haven't you heard Fabrice duPont and how his accent and speaking patterns can really draw a person in? I mean you are selling yourself when doing this. You are a performer. Well that is unless you sound like Alvin chipmunk? But who doesn't like cartoon voices either?

    Mel Blanc, my hero. DA (chomp chomp) what's up Doc?

    I'm with Remy. The human voice draws people in. You don't need much. There must be someone at Russo's with a thick Jersey accent. (I think I bought my Gibson lefty EB-3 from them in 1973. It sucked. I couldn't play like Jack Bruce or Rick Danko. I still hold a grudge.)
