Surf Green - A modern surf rock song inspired by Miserlou by Dick Dale. This is an original piece written by me. I recorded the guitars using an American Stratocaster and an Ibanez Jet King II. The amps used were a Mesa Boogie Lonestar for the clean reverb parts and an Egnater Rebel 20 for the distorted lead parts and the outro. The bass was done with a Warwick Rock Bass plugged into an old Line 6 TonePort UX2.
The drum kit is a Mapex Saturn Special Edition Birch 5 Star Drum Shops set. The heads are all the original Remo Emperor batters with Ambassador resonants. The batter heads are tuned loose while the resonant heads are a little tighter. The snare is a DW Collector Series Copper 4x14 power piccolo. The head on that one is a simple Aquarian Z100 Texture Coated. A true great sounding inexpensive head. The cymbals are my personal favorites Zildjian K Custom Dark.
The filming was all done with 3 Go Pro HD Hero cameras. The POV angle is shot using a Chesty camera mount.
Eighth microphones were used all plugged into a Mackie Onyx soundboard plugged via firewire into an iMac running Logic Pro 8. The original drums of the recording were removed and I then recorded this live version of the drum parts. A little different and a little more energetic than the original.
