Vintage-Sounding Heavy Rock Drum Samples
We used our trusty old Yamaha 9000, tuned low and mean, using the 13″ and the 16″ for the toms. 22×16″ kick, with the front head low but the display head pitched-up, just as the great John Bonham himself used to.
We could dedicate an entire blog post to our adventures with the snare on this recording! We settled for this HUGE sounding free-floating brass shell 14″ snare drum tuned with the bottom head cranked, and the top head lower in pitch, and with the snares pretty slack.
This is a great example of how a snare drum can change the sound of an entire kit. The snares light up on any hit around the kit – just have a listen to the tom samples in the heavy rock drum samples preview above.
We also used the same “ribbon-mic-in-the-hallway” technique we’ve used on previous recordings to give the option of having a natural room/reverb sound. Using this channel with some fairly bold compression strapped on it can deliver some MASSIVE results.
