Mic drums test by One Harp published on 2013/01/13 20:49:30 +0000 "Drums" are two vintage Concord dynamic biscuit mics for use with a reel-to-reel tape recorder. They are just lain on the carpet, and I'm lightly stomping them with my heels. They are input to my Alesis Multimix 8 mixer. The "kick drum" mic has all the highs and mids cut, and the bass boosted. The "woodblock" mic has all the bass cut, and the mids boosted. They are both panned about 60/40 each way to achieve a little stereo separation. The harp played in free air and is recorded by a pair of stereo-matched small diaphragm condensers (Behringer C2's) set in an x-y pickup pattern. The mics are about a foot away from the back of the harp.
