"THE MIDNIGHT LOVE" recording set-up



The set-up for his new band THE MADCAP LAUGHS is very similar to what we've seen in his other projects recently.

Drums:

Snare drum: 14"x6.5" Pearl Aluminum Free Floating, 14"x6.5" Pearl 30th Anniversary Brass Free Floating
Toms: Pearl MPL 14"x8", 16"x16", 18"x16"
Bass drum: Pearl MPL 24"x16"

I haven't seen any visual evidence of him using the brass free-floating, but he acquired right as he was recording this album so it makes sense that it might appear.

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 Formula 602 Ride
18", 17" Paiste Formula 602 Crashes
20" Paiste 2002 Novo Chinese

No changes from other recent recordings.

The following pictures were taken by Sakura during his reccording for this album. The snare drum is the 30th Anniversary Pearl Brass Free-Floating snare drum.
