Russian Circles kick drum box thing

Postby digdoug on Mon Apr 14, 2014 11:21 pm

Hey :)

Love the drum sound on Memorial, lots of killer sounding kick...

Can someone tell me what the box is in front of Dave Turncrantz's kick? Or any other general information about the drum tracking?

Thanks!!

This?

I should let Greg answer, but it's pretty much just reversing the speaker to make it a microphone. The speaker cone moves when the air from the kick hits it, therefore it generates some current which you can use a DI to turn into a signal you can feed a preamp. So in essence it's a microphone that captures really low frequencies.

Yamaha makes one, it's called SKRM-100SFV.

Yeah,

It's basically my version of the sub kick microphone.

Really liking how the drums sound on Memorial. I think Dave actually sounds better on this vista kit. Just sounds a bit more "rock" on this recording imo, if that makes any sense... louder, deeper, more attack, great snare sound.

Hi (new here), I was just listening to this record in my car.
It really is a great record and love the drum sound (also the guitars and bass - the tones are awesome).

Nice to see the drum setup posted here. :)
