This custom snare drum was hand crafted by Ebenor
Percussion into cherry wood. This is a warm sounding
14x7 inches snare drum with a 1/2 inch thickness and
a 45 degree chamfer, mounted with triple flange
hoops dressed by a 2 plies coated drumhead.
It was recorded using 5 microphones (2 on top, 1 at
the bottom and a stereo matched pair for the room
sound), giving the possibility to mix the final
sound from 4 channels. Top and bottom condenser mics
were recorded through a tube preamp using NOS
vintage 12AX7 tubes driven to a class A digital
converter. Top dynamic mic and the stereo room
condenser mics were picked up from a top notch
soundcard's transistor preamps.
