This is the second part of Jim Pavett's Studio Edge series.

This course, Drum preparation and Tools for the Studio, teaches you how to properly setup and tune a drum to achieve the sound you need. Jim then provides thorough explanations and samples of dampening techniques, and goes over placement in the room, ergonomics and setup, and everything you need to know about microphones cables and stands.

World class engineer, drummer and educator Jim Pavett presents this tutorial through the perspectives of the drummer, the engineer and the studio owner. Whether you are a drummer looking to learn more about your instrument and craft, a recording engineer looking to perfect your drum recording technique, or a studio owner trying to select the right house kit for the studio , this series delivers.

The first course, the Anatomy of Drums is must have information. Miking technique can only take you so far. Knowing the intricacies of the instrument and how to select the right shell material, heads, mounting technique, sticks and cymbals is a game changer. Even if you are not a drummer yourself, you will be able to make informed decisions to maximize your sound in the studio or stage.
