Mastering Overheads MasterClass is the most comprehensive video series on the market. In this 60+ minute series Engineer Charlie Waymire demonstrates techniques you need to know to in order to get the most out of your overhead drum sounds.
Overheads can be the key to recording your dream drum sound. If you have the right mics, in the right position, you’ll likely end up with a great sound that helps enhance your music. If you don’t…..you’ll likely end up with a sound that hurts more than helps.
“When I’m building a drum sound for a song I ALWAYS start with the overheads. I’ll set everything up but I always listen to my overheads first. I rely heavily on my overheads for my tones so I don’t move on to the spot mics until the overheads are right. That includes my choice of placement and microphone type. After all it’s not just a drum sound I’m trying to capture. It’s a sound that works for the song.” Engineer Charlie Waymire
