Cadeson in the Studio

CADESON IN THE STUDIO.

 

Well firstly,  this description on Cadeson drum sounds will NOT do them any justice, so check them out for your self.

 

let me begin by setting the Scene. I loaded into Chapel Lane studios on Wednesday night, set up my gear and left them to it so the engineers had no pressure on positioning the 15+ mic’s around the kit and room.

I rolled on in to the studio at around 10:ish the next morning to begin pulling sounds from the kit. Already happy with the noises coming from the Kick, Snare and toms,

I know that the final result will be at world class level.  so after about an hour of kick kick kick kick ect, Snare snare snare ect. we are ready to track the drums against the pre pro track. This track is for an Adelaide funk rock band called Stone Cap, keep an ear out for these guys. any hoo.  I’ve layed down the 1st take, wich was a test run to see if I can actually play, (as no one in the studio has actually seen or heard me play),  but as I look up into the control room after the sustain from the cymbals have faded,  I notice a lot of happy faces. The composer Don, The producer Wayne and The engineer, Gabs, all seem to be happy with the sound of the kit and I guess the way I’ve hit them. I’ve stepped in to the control booth for a listen, made some small changes to the arrangement, then back to the kit I went, to lay down the actual recordings. 1st take, no problems,  2nd take, no problems, 3rd take, no problems, that’s me done, !  I’ve gone back in to the control room for a good listen.  We muted all other chanels bar the drums. I’m thinking to my self,  Holy Shit Balls.  this kit sounds amazing. !! Ive played on a good dosen of top shelve drums in both, studio and live settings,  but the feel I got back from this Cadeson bubinga shell was smoother, deeper and clearer than any other kit that I’ve played on, This is obviously my opinion, but please don’t think that phrase is a cop-out. In fact !! I challenge you to compare any brand kit with these!.


 Cadeson is a new brand to Australian shores, thanks to A1 pro percussion, however Cadeson have been building drums for over 25years.good shell sizes, CHECK,Excellent grade of woods CHECK,

Sturdy hardware, CHECK,

Reasonably priced CHECK CHECK. (I’d say under priced )

They WILL become the next kit of choice for a lot of drummers around Australia, Mark my word!!

check out some snaps of the kit in the studio and check back soon for a high quality audio sample.

UKKO Internal Mics, INSTALLED !!

Ukko mics have a bit of a mixed opinion, I personally think that is because most people are negative towards new or different concepts. ive used these babys for live and high quality studio recording and they always impress.  ( providing the Engineers know what they are doing, check out their site.

Projects

Plenty of Projects.

 

too many to mention.

THE NEW SITE

hey Trend setters,  have a geez at my new site.  need to add a bit more media.  but all in due time !!
