Here’s a logo we haven’t seen so far at Grand Street – Leedy & Ludwig. Built around 1954, orange sparkle wrap, sizes 13″, 16″ and 24″. we’ve thrown a number of different heads on the drums and settled on a couple that really made us smile. Earthtone skins on the toms and an assortment of Evans/Remo heads for the kick. Dialing in sounds for this kit is gonna be super fun, they already sound huge!
Rounding out the bottom, we’ve completed cataloging the entirety of our drum collection. Good sounds start at the source, and we’ve sure got a lot of great sources here. Vintage and modern drums to color the bottom in a variety of ways; mellow to aggressive, shallow to deep. Each drum is carefully tuned and treated to achieve it’s purpose in the music. All told there’s 7 kick drums, 11 toms and 30 snares. There’s a place for each sound somewhere.
Is there anything better than the feeling of a freshly set up axe? Just got a great 1997 Rickenbacker 4003 set up by the wonderful Flip Scipio, along with a bunch of other new toys. Check out our gear page for all the latest.
We’ve added a pair of matched Neumann Gefell UM70s to the Grand Street microphone collection. These two come from the early ’70s and are in the same Neumann family as the fet47 and u87. Equipped with an M7 capsule, this pair is in immaculate condition, we’re ready to try them out on a host of shootouts!
Teddy, Brooke, Rob, James, Linda, Richard, Muna, Jack, Kami, Zak and Paulina made a record. We are really happy to have been a part of it. Engineering by Ken Rich, assisted by Jake Lummus.
