Blue Moon Harem at The Outpost 11/2/08
Worked on three drum tracks with drummer Brian MacDougall for Blue Moon Harem's upcoming CD. Brian had expressed interest in using his Sonor Force Maple toms (as we had in previous sessions) and I'm really glad we did. I liked these 9 horizontal ply drums once I sussed out the proper way to tune them. They have a nice low end roundness that worked nicely in the studio. I also had a chance to play and hear the new "Loud Series" snare drum from Yamaha I'm reviewing for DRUM! magazine and will feature in an upcoming post.
Brian made quick business out of the songs and I had a chance to enjoy the last hours of a beautiful but chilly New England autumn day...
