    Tank Drum Solo on the Super Big Reds

    This was previously blocked, but for some reason..., no longer. Should have been recorded about 3 dB hotter (I lost some headroom).

    Recorded on a Nikon D750. Crank it and enjoy.

    Yep Todd, that definitely sounds great ( on my Sennheiser HeadPhones ).

    Is the sound captured "live", through the "optional" ME-1 Stereo Microphone ( seen below ) ?



    I'd have to say that your particular 604's are the Gold Standard .

    A longtime business associate had a pair of Super Reds setup in his AV Studio ( back in the 80's ).

    Listening to yours really brings back some nice memories .


    I'd be super interested ( if you ever get the inclination ) to know the model number of the HF diaphragm ( IOW, do you have the older more fragile 20275 diaphragms or the newer 34852 model ).
    - I own neither model, so I'm curious.

    That was recorded using the mics built into the camera. The sound is stereo, but because the mics are so close together, you loose a lot of separation.

    One of my all time favorite rock drummers, Carl Palmer. Seen them live when they came out with Brain Salad Surgery Album.

    Came home that night, and threw them on the turntable, and with two Mac Amps, and 4 JBL Jubal Speakers, my system sounded like a little transistor radio! LOL Probably lost some hearing from that concert.

    Like the Celestron C-8 Scope in the back, had one in the 80's and 90's. Then had a C-14 on a AP1200GTO Mount and sold it, wish I never did.

    Still have two though, the Apomax 5.2" and AP Traveler 4.1" Apo Refractors.

    Thanks,

    I saw them at the Long Beach Arena and at California Jam when both times Keith had his flying piano.

    It's a Criterion 8-1/4".
