Drum Miking Techniques for Dynamic Sound
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | August 16, 2017
Do you know how to get the best live or recorded tone from your kit? Join Tim Rankin as he explores Drum Miking Techniques for Dynamic Sound.
Tone Tone Tone. That’s what it’s all about. If you are a great player with poor tone, then that’s all people will remember. But, tone comes from more than just your kit. It comes from the mics you use and how you place and setup the mics. Join us so that you can learn Drum Miking Techniques for Dynamic Sound.
Where: Paul Bothner Music Somerset West
Shop 16, Checkers Centre
c/o Main & Gordons Street
When: Saturday 19 August
What to expect
During this workshop, Tim will specifically look at:
Tuning the drums effectively for presence and pitch
Mic placement and mic choice
Studio tricks and techniques
Live tricks and techniques
This is the perfect workshop for anyone who hasn’t got a lot of live or studio experience. Even if you’ve played live a lot and have a good grasp on live miking, there will be things you can learn which will help you in the studio. And visa versa.
This is also the perfect workshop for sound engineers. You can learn from a massively experienced drummer and implement his tricks and techniques when miking bands in your venue. This will ensure that your venue’s live tone will be a cut above the rest!
