    This article is excerpted from Bobby Owsinki’s “The Drum Recording Handbook.” One of the most important and overlooked aspects of drum mic’ing is making sure that the mics are all in-phase. This is really important because with only one out-of-phase mic, the whole kit will never sound right, and if not corrected before all the drums are mixed together, it can never be fixed. So just what is phase anyway? Without getting into a heavy explanation, it just means that… View this post

Kent was a brand established by Buegeleisen & Jacobson musical instrument distributors, which was based in New York City in the early 1960s. It was known primarily as a guitar brand, with some of the early guitars made by Guyatone and Hagstrom. In addition to guitars and basses, the Kent name was on amplifiers, guitar… View this post
