On my old recordings I used one Sennheiser mic (don't remember model) and i'm thinking about getting a Shure beta 52A or even 2.
It's metal so I want the bass drum to be heard loud and clear.
What would you guys advice... ?
i have AKG d112, m audio octane 8 preamp and the only compressors i have are pro tools plugins. any suggestions how to get the biggest sound possible?
I have exciting question about recording bass drum. Assured a lot of You met this.
Tinkling drum beater on drum head!
Ordinary drummers play on bass drum with pressing drum beater on the head and in that case beater provide little terrible tinkling sounds.
Of course if drummer realy pros player he can controll this, play non pressing, with a good feeling and with a good sound, but usually ordinary drummers can't play so - they play like they can play))
Hey Guys, I haven't been around in a while but now that I have started a new recording project with some new equip I have run into a few problems. My main problem is with the sound that I am getting out of my bass drum. Has anyone used the Shure PG52 bass drum mic? if so do you know how to EQ it to get decent rock "Smack" I'm using the plastic side of the bass drum beater and its on a coated head but when I record it I just get this dull crappy thud. Could it be the head? It's not too old but it might be the problem? Let me know please.
