    Love 'em. They work great for any kind of tracking where loud instruments are involved. They're also good for vocalists that like to have their monitor mix cranked, since they minimize bleed that might be picked up by the vocal mic.

    Also... If you're some schmoe like me that doesn't have the luxury of a control room, they're great for ballparking mic placement. They're not terribly hi-fi, but still a great tool.

    Sorry to hi-jack the thread slightly, but it's to do with doomsday machine, does anyone know what amps chris was using on the live tracks on the dvd, doesn't look like a 5150 cos you can see the tubes through the grill, and also the cabs have the grey grill on them. Just curious, if anyone knows......

    it's actually the ddrum 4 module, not the alesis DM5. the ddrum 4 is a much pricier unit with some pretty cool sounds.

    I've been able to borrow a ddrum4 twice from a friend, 1 for live and 1 for testing purposes....that thing ruled! kicked some major ass...

    Well I guess I gotta stick with my D4 for awhile :)...

    I'm using Emperors now, allthough trying Emperor Smooth a couple of weeks back and trying Pinstripes yesterday (on tom 12 & 14) I stay with my clear Emperors for now...
    Pearl & Sabian..way to go :)

    Well, I took the joke serious :saint: ...
    So I went out bought some pinstripes to try, but for me I feel that it actually kills to much of the beauty the MMX shell has in it..but that's after a rough try...
    When I get some time this weekend, I gonna try some recordings between the Clear Emps, Smooth Emps & Pinstripes..


    This forum kicks ass!! :kickass:

    After hours allready spent on experimenting....
    I think the most important rule is one of the first things you learn when you start having drum lessons...
    HIT HARD, but subtile! Or else there's no way to get anywhere near this sound :)..

    :kickass:

    Just thought I'd scream it out to all the Meg White fans out there.
