What Did I Use On The Album?
Unfortunately I had to wait so long for my Birch Pearl Masters kit to be made that I had to use my SRX Session Kit for all the recording sessions (although it did a great job of course). My DW Maple snare, which has a beautiful weighty crack that always cuts through but remains FAT. The cymbals listed above in most cases were used throughout.
