Drumming legend chooses sE Electronic drum mics
Drumming legend Morgan Agren chooses sE mics to record his huge drum kit set-up.
Grammy award-winning drummer Morgan Agren has played alongside some of the biggest names in music for decades.
He has played across the globe with Steve Vai, Frank Zappa and, more recently, Bill Laswell as well as starting his own band Batterie Deluxe.
Awards include Grammys on both sides of the Atlantic right up to last year's top spot in a Modern Drummer magazine reader poll.
"My drum set is huge," he says of his recording set-up. "There are three bass drums and lots of other stuff. The drum kit always needs to be mic'd and ready for recording"
Morgan's choice of mics for his kit was always going to be a key decision, but actually turned out to be an easy one.
Morgan combines his two sE4400 with two Gemini II that he uses as room mics.
"I'd normally go for more mics just to get more flexibility," he explains, "but with just these four mics I've already got a great set-up and I'd recommend this combination to anyone wanting to record a great kit sound."
Morgan is now experimenting with the sE T2 for his kick drums and also his brand new RNR1 which is offering him a lot of sonic flexibility "I can really vary the sound I want with that one."
It is this flexibility and the sound of his new mic set up that Morgan concludes has completely won him over.
2Every time I go into my studio I only have to look at those Gemini II mics to feel good. I hear a sound in my head and I just know that one of these mics will make it happen when I record".Posted on 2 Mar 2011 15:47 to category : Instruments News
