Drum Recording History

Hi Drummers,

Below is a short video excerpt from my book The Drum: A History. This particular excerpt begins to detail the events that took place in drum recording history that evolved through technology advances and the vision of many humans to bring us to the advanced stage that we’re at today. Understanding drum recording history helps us to appreciate what we have today, and may inspire new ideas or concepts based on old ideas. Just because some technologies have moved on, it doesn’t mean that all that came before is now obsolete. Some of the older techniques for recording drums might be exactly what is needed for a particular song, even today.

Check out the video and if you’re interested in other areas of drum history, feel free to watch the other videos on various aspects of the journey.
