GRIT drum mics demo

0:02:51.480,0:02:56.769
okay my name is Peter Sesselmann and Im
the maker of the Puck'n stomp the

0:02:56.769,0:03:01.420
Peterman acoustic guitar pickups and
now also this range of drum microphones

0:03:01.420,0:03:05.769
which are called grit for- "get right in
there" and the whole idea with the drum

0:03:05.769,0:03:10.180
microphone started when we were trying
to record the drummer in the band and we

0:03:10.180,0:03:14.349
had a whole range of different
microphones to test in the studio we

0:03:14.349,0:03:17.769
found we had difficulty actually getting
right in there where the sound is the

0:03:17.769,0:03:21.939
drums have a sweet spot where the sound
is the most natural and has the most

0:03:21.939,0:03:26.650
tones that you want to actually capture
in the recording so we tried all kinds

0:03:26.650,0:03:29.500
of stands and this Stephanie Roberts
always really awkward and lots of

0:03:29.500,0:03:32.919
microphone stands and big clunky
attachments and this that and the other

0:03:32.919,0:03:37.299
I thought gee there's got to be a better
way than this so we started

0:03:37.299,0:03:40.239
experimenting with a few different types
of feelings and different types of heads

0:03:40.239,0:03:44.379
and things like that and which brought
us to this point basically where we have

0:03:44.379,0:03:50.229
a complete range of drum microphones
called grit and as you saw by the demo

0:03:50.229,0:03:54.729
just earlier on that Alex was hammering
away there a little bit good job we did

0:03:54.729,0:03:58.810
as well the sound is just fantastic
they're really natural sounding they

0:03:58.810,0:04:02.680
don't color the sound of the instrument
in any way they just basically record

0:04:02.680,0:04:07.870
exactly the sound that your drum or
cymbal makes now I was talking about the

0:04:07.870,0:04:13.919
simplicity of heart clips together so
the the basic microphone looks like this

0:04:13.919,0:04:19.479
it's got a head it's got a neck it's got
a clip and it's got a XLR plug no

0:04:19.479,0:04:22.300
batteries or anything this is straight
through this is a dynamic microphone

0:04:22.300,0:04:28.930
very open sound very clean no coloration
of the tone at all and it's simply it

0:04:28.930,0:04:33.430
also slides up and down you can see this
so depending on exactly how much space

0:04:33.430,0:04:39.190
you want to give it so it clips onto
your drum very easily it has two two

0:04:39.190,0:04:44.469
positions that it sits comfortably
clipped on and you can you can pull the

0:04:44.469,0:04:48.759
neck art to their length that you want
and also because it has a bendable neck

0:04:48.759,0:04:52.900
you can bend that so that the focus is
right down on the sweet spot or if you

0:04:52.900,0:04:57.279
find it you you hit it accidentally when
you're playing you can then push it back

0:04:57.279,0:04:59.590
a bit but still keeping the focus on
that

0:04:59.590,0:05:04.600
great spot so it's very easy to get
right in there where that sound is that

0:05:04.600,0:05:09.510
you want to record now the symbol mics
again there's some stands of them

0:05:09.510,0:05:13.750
brackets I suppose you'd call them
available from the website that clips

0:05:13.750,0:05:19.030
onto your drum stands and makes them you
know very easily to again get right in

0:05:19.030,0:05:24.880
where the sweet spot of that symbolism
and these are these are convinced ur

0:05:24.880,0:05:30.490
mics so they require powers they're
running a phantom power and they look

0:05:30.490,0:05:35.200
like this same same basic idea except
they have a condenser head rather than a

0:05:35.200,0:05:38.800
dynamic head so they all advantage with
this is that you can actually if you

0:05:38.800,0:05:44.260
don't have the brackets you can get away
with clipping them onto your until you

0:05:44.260,0:05:48.850
your tongue and pointing them at the
cymbal and that's not a bad that will

0:05:48.850,0:05:52.150
compromise actually that works quite
well too you don't get quite the

0:05:52.150,0:05:56.110
flexibility of having an individual
stand that's a compromise it's not a bad

0:05:56.110,0:06:03.100
one so the the other thing I wanted to
mention is the the kick drum microphone

0:06:03.100,0:06:07.210
that's another little bit of a
revolutionary product as well because it

0:06:07.210,0:06:11.710
has not only does it have a microphone
in it which picks up all the overtones

0:06:11.710,0:06:15.880
and all that beautiful sound that you
kick drum normally produces it also has

0:06:15.880,0:06:21.010
a built-in sub driver which is the same
transducer that we use in our stompboxes

0:06:21.010,0:06:25.390
which just give that thunderous bottom
base that you don't get with a normal

0:06:25.390,0:06:30.550
microphone so it's basically two devices
and one it's a microphone and it's a

0:06:30.550,0:06:35.170
transducer so this this thing is
something else or just on its own that's

0:06:35.170,0:06:41.020
a little beauty I tell you so thanks for
watching this video you can go to the

0:06:41.020,0:06:46.240
website either go to Peterman dot-com
data a U or you can go to grit my comm

0:06:46.240,0:06:50.500
they're both take you to the same place
and then you can see all the accessories

0:06:50.500,0:06:54.670
and all the different drums and all the
different drum mics which are available

0:06:54.670,0:06:57.640
right now check it out if you have if
you have any kind of questions at all

0:06:57.640,0:07:02.260
feel free to drop me an email I try and
answer them as quickly as possible it's

0:07:02.260,0:07:08.170
all handmade by Alex and myself and we
insist on quality we're both fanatical

0:07:08.170,0:07:12.400
about tone and sound which is what led
us to design this in the first place

0:07:12.400,0:07:17.889
because we just couldn't get the sound
and and the flexibility that we wanted

0:07:17.889,0:07:22.150
from the existing what was the existing
on the market that's kind of how we

0:07:22.150,0:07:28.630
operate we see we see a niche and we fix
it so I said go to the website drop me

0:07:28.630,0:07:33.130
an email if you want and thanks for
taking the time to watch this this video

0:07:33.130,0:07:36.810
I'll catch you later Cheers
