Thomas: "I recorded this album as usual- in full live takes, on two days in late October 2019 and I had a blast doing it! This is not a mix, just the audio from my headphone-feed without the click track.Check out Javier's album, lots of snappy Fusion tunes on there!
Here I am using a 12 x 6.5 DW Collector's series Maple/Mahogany snare with a clear Emperor drumhead and loose snare-wire tension. I should clean up my studio sometime."
Here's another song from a recent session for Javier Salinas. I went for larger tom sizes and a lower snare (14 x 6.5 Titanium) on this one. I went for a Fusion/Rock vibe on this one and played very "thematic" fills to create a second tier of recognizable quotes in the music. Some Rata Toms and Gong drum action in the Bridge section and a sweet sounding 19" Mb10 China.
