How to Record Drums (not just cymbals)
No, we don't want you to tape your cymbals.
Here's a better way -- upgrade your overhead mics. :-)
The Roswell Mini K47 at a glance:
Hear the Mini K47s on drum overheads in the video clip below.
(Quick personal story: as you probably saw in the video above, Glenn's former go-to OH mic was a particular small-diaphragm model that was the darling of the internets about 20 years ago. Ironically, that was my personal go-to OH mic too, until I tried the Mini K47 prototype on my own drums.)
Here's another demo video, featuring Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper, Hollywood Vampires) warming up, with a pair of Mini K47s on OH and a Roswell Delphos on kick. (Check out Glen's left hand!)
This clip uses much higher mic placement, which creates a roomier sound than a lower overhead placement would.
Mini K47 Testimonials
- When we put the Roswell Mini K-47s up and had a listen, we were stunned. They have a smooth detailed sound, without being overly bright. The Mini K47 is warm, and don't sound inexpensive. It is a true "no-brainer" for anyone who is looking for a great mic at a great value.
- Ross Hogarth, Grammy Award Nominated Engineer and Producer
- The Mini K47s have such a great balanced top end. They are my go-to mics for drum rooms and acoustic guitars.
- Geoff Neal, Sunset Sound
The Mixdown Online Review
Chris Selim of Mixdown Online tried the mics on vocals, guitar, and drums, and named the mic the best mic under $300. Here's his drum clip:
