The Oriollo kit is mic’d Up and ready to go. We set up last night and I had the Oriollo out of the cases first and they sounded so good that we just mic’d them up.
Snare at the moment is a late ‘80’s black beauty.
If we have time today we may try other combinations.
I'm bringing a bunch of snares. Oriollo Mangana, INDe Maple and Aluminum, J-M, Black Beauty, Camco, Rogers Wood Powertone, Gretsch Oak Stave, Geo Way Copper. My guitarist has a Pork Pie that he's partial to.
I've done some recording with them in my own drum room, which is not big. They do sound great under the mics (Senn 421's in my case). We'll probably use U87's on the toms this weekend. The room the drums will be in is not huge, but is a pretty good size.
Doing some recording this weekend of original material at the guitarist's home studio. We've recorded there in the past and we have a great collection of mics and pre's, so I know it is going to sound great. Last time I used a Rogers 22-13-16 (now in the capable hands of Johnny D!).
