Recording Drums With Mike Exeter - 3 Toms
In this video for Production Expert, Technical Editor James Ivey works with Recording Engineer and Producer Mike Exeter to record his kit for a metal track. In the third video of this series of four , Mike explains his approach to recording tom toms using 2 microphones, one on the top or batter head and the other wired out of phase on the resonator head. These two mics feed into one mic preamp and recording channel. This technique reduces the amount of bleed from the other drums and cymbals in the kit into the tom mics.
