I've been busy recording drums and bass in my studio. I had the fabulous Ralph Humphrey here last week playing drums. I used a 57 on snare, a RE320 on kick, a ribbon on over heads, and finally a 414 in front of the kit for a room mic. Ralph and I were amazed how this produced a nice fat retro mono sound. Also, a few days ago Mark "Pocket" Goldberg stopped by and and cut a groovy stand up bass part on STORM COMIN'. I recorded him using a Telefunken AK47 into a BAE 1073 and got a cool sound. I'm very excited about how these tunes are coming together. I'll post some rough mixes soon.
