Day 3 (More Drums)

Earlier today, we took a trip to Guitar Center. Ian tried out some pedals while Andrew bought a couple of new cymbals. Shortly after, we went straight to the studio and had another full day of recording drums. Not much changed overall. The Coles 4038 was moved closer to the kit and sent through a Dbx 160x and SPL Transient Designer. Nick tried out different snares and cymbals on “Birds”, which was completely reworked. In the end, he reverted back to using an earlier snare. Drums were also tracked for “Greensleeves” and “Wallflowers”.
