Nubs! You came through! :thumbup:
That whole kit sounds just great.
Thanks so much for doing that. You're alright.

Thanks Elvis! That definitely was not my best playing at all...quite sloppy IMO. But the overall sound came through very well I thought. Of course now I'm thinking more mics and a bigger mixer, new computer, etc. And clean up my playing!

...particularly those toms. Juicy good.
Thanks man. When I'm playing, I'm not in love with them. But when I hear them back like this, they actually do sound good.

My only current office pics... My daily practice room and the local church I videotape music for each Thursday evening. I am enjoying bringing different cymbals and snares to that gig so it's been a nice break in the routine for sure. This is from last week, it was a mix of my Bosphorus and their Sabian's...

My office is multifunctional.
I have my drum studio on one end and my VoiceOver studio on the other.
I do quite a bit of work in animated features and feature films ... and I play the drums. It all works quite well.
I can swap out kits fairly rapidly. I keep four complete cymbal sets in the back corner there.
I have a rackmount system of mic pres for the drums.
The VoiceOver studio runs an AVANTONE CV-12, a SHURE KSM32 that are run through a UNIVERSAL AUDIO APOLLO TWIN MKII. All systems are run into the iMac and LOGIC PRO X and FinalCut Pro. I run a second 4k display on the left side desk. That allows me to edit on the left side desk while tracking on the iMac on the right side desk.

That "office" looks gorgeous. Looks like you're in the middle of nowhere.

I wanted to contribute again to one of my favorite threads on this forum: Here’s my makeshift home office. In addition to the pad I’ve added some hats. The purpose here is to get some left foot time working on my off beat chups, particularly on shuffles. I’ve never really been able to do this with any ownership, so I figure if I get one thing out of this Shelter In Place, if I get that skill then I’ve got something to show for being on lockdown since around the Ides of March.

Another interesting phenomenon is putting up all four of my sets of hats to compare them. The 14s: Hollow Logo New Beats; a pair of lightweight Old Beats, some K Custom Darks; and my favorite the 15” K Lights.
Funny how the ears work. Up close and intimate the Old Beats really sound the best, but in a band setting I favor the K Lights. For pure off beat accents, though, I have to say the K Custom Darks are the most chuppalicious.

Another bonus to this set up is I really gave the foot board on Ye Olde Iron Cobra a good cleaning so I can play it barefoot.

Had to bust out some other drums for practice while the Slingerlands are in the shop.

8x28, 12x15, 6x14, 22" Medium Thin Low, 19" K Sweet, 15" trans hats

Basically all reject drums. The 15" and 28" we old Ludwig marchers that I converted and the snare was junk until I rescued it.
The wood hoops and big bass sound so big and open and great together. Been playing a 20" for a year or so and it's so fun to play a 28" for a change.

That is so cool. What’s the sound and volume like on a 8x28 kick compared to, say, a trad 14x20?

Awesome bass drum! I really like the old silver screen movies, and it's so cool to try and make out the drums you see with all of the big bands from that era. I find myself pausing and trying to count the bass drum lugs.

This is just a cool photo I found when searching for "Sock Cymbals".
