Dave Weckl, noted studio drummer and clinic extraordinaire, is offering himself as drummer/producer/engineer on his website. He has a complete Pro Tools HD3 rig, mic’d up kit, and iso room in his garage! Personally, I’m frothing with jealousy. It’s one of my dreams to have a working home studio. Looks like I should take some notes! Check out the video and photos on his site. Pretty sweet!
Thought I’d share one of my favorite videos with you all today. This one’s of Benny Greb groovin’ away in his studio. I love the simplicity of these clips. Just a couple of mics and a drumset. Something beautifully perfect about that. Enjoy![youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VB0nUBRBgJg[/youtube]
Good things in the works from our friends at Taye (pronounced TIE). Their new Studio Birch kit looks amazing. Taye makes great drums. I remember being very impressed with Jim Payne’s Taye kit at PASIC 2006. What I think is interesting is that they have several different bass drum sizes. 24″ x 16″ would be awesome!
Studio great Russ Miller (friend of the podcast) and Hudson Music have released Miller’s new DVD, “Arrival: Behind the Glass.” Seems like it’s part instructional DVD, part performance DVD. Russ is a great guy and phenomenal player. Check out Dave’s interview with Russ on the 1.19.07 podcast.
