"FOREVER YOUNG" recording set-up



Given that he had recently finished recording "NARCISSUS" for Rayflower and would be recording "THE MIDNIGHT LOVE" for THE MADCAP LAUGHS in the next month, unsurprisingly he didn't change around his general recording set-up much.

Drums:

Snare drum: 14"x6.5" Pearl Aluminum Free Floating, 14"x5.5" Pearl Stainless Steel
Toms: Pearl MPL 14"x8", 16"x16", 18"x16"
Bass drum: Pearl MPL 24"x16"

While other snare drums may appear, I know at least he was using these two. It's quite clear that songs like "uzu" and "FOREVER YOUNG" are using the Stainless Steel, while "shounen no ashiato" resembles the snare sound from "TRUE IMPULSE" quite strongly.

Heads:

Snare drum: Remo Coated Ambassador (top), Remo Ambassador Snare Side (bottom)
Toms: Remo Clear Ambassador (top), Remo Clear Ambassador (bottom)
Bass drum: Remo Coated Pinstripe (batter), Pearl stock reso head (resonant)

Using simply the only photo available as a reference.

Cymbals:

15" Paiste mystery Sound Edge Hi-Hats
22" Paiste 2002 Ride
18", 17" Paiste Formula 602 Crashes
20" Paiste 2002 Novo Chinese

No changes from other recent recordings.
