Each track will be meticulously recorded with the finest microphones and preamps available. A track of similar quality would cost over $50,000 in equipment alone, plus the expense of renting the studio time and hiring the best drummer you could find.

I use Yamaha Recording Custom Birch (1983, 1986, 1990) 20", 22" (x2), Maple Custom (2001) 20", Vintage Ludwig (1969) 22", 20" (1975) and Slingerland 18" & 22" (1972) and Precision Drum Co. 16"x18" and 16"x24" (2012) bass drums. Toms are Yamaha Recording Custom Birch, Maple Custom Classic 1960's Ludwig, Slingerland Concert Toms and Precision Drum Co.
