I recorded this to compare a few different drum heads on my drums. I am using two the t.bone SC-140 behind me aiming towards the center of the snare and one Audio Technica AT2020 in front of the kit with focus on the bass drum. I wanted this to sound as natural as possible so I have only panned the SC-140's and put a little bit of compression on all the tracks.
Drum kit: Gretsch Renown in vintage pearl finish, 14x5,5 Gretsch Brooklyn snare drum (chrome over steel), 12x8 rack tom, 16x14 floor tom and 22x18 bass drum. I am using Zildjian A Custom cymbals.
NOTE: I updated this video on october 5, 2014, because I wasn't satisfied with the mic setup on the first version. I also wanted to try my new Audio Technica AT 2020 and my new Gretsch Brooklyn snare drum.
I made this video in purpose to let people hear how my new Gretsch Renown drums sound. The audio is recorded with Logic Pro X, Audio Technica ATM-25 on the bass drum, SM-57 on the snare and two the t.bone SC-140 that are placed behind me. I wanted the drums to sound as natural as possible so I only use a little bit of compression and a very small amount of EQ.
