These are one hits from a frankenstein drumkit I built with Luke Millar my drummer and Roland Schwark from Capitol Drums Berlin. He has the best kits for hire at amazing prices and he will deliver to the studio! http://capitaldrums-berlin.de/we used various different snares hats and crashes in the recording. It was engineered by the fabulous Phil Freeborn @ Freeborn Studio's Berlin. We used no compression going down just API & Manley mic pre's and the great pre's on his D&R; Orion inline mixing console. We achieved a very special drum sound over 2 days in Phil's wonderful studio. We used a combination of high end mic's with some vintage "crappy" room mic's.

We miced up Phil's Grand Piano with a brick on the sustain pedal and used an array of weird and wonderful room mics. The key room mic was the HORNY mic. Yes the brand name is called horny. It is recorded in quite a large room with high ceilings.
The drummer is Luke Millar from Melbourne and we recorded the drums for the first album of my new project called the Greta Mob in late August 2011. These are high quality wavs @ 24bit/44100hz. I bounced all the one hits in stereo with every mic on. The kit has been panned in a standard way from the perspective of the drummer. These hits will be great for layering existing live drums or for electronic production.
Please let me know if you have used them I would love to hear your creations!
