A kit assembled by James throughout years playing in noisy bands and collecting bits of kits from long-forgotten places. Stripped down, hardware replaced and repainted, it's exact composition has been lost to time but it definitely has an unusually large rack tom, super high hats and a kick sound like your head is caving in.
Proprietary electret condenser microphone unique to Third Circle Recordings. Uses a Panasonic WM-61A capsule modified to enable phantom power. Used almost exclusively as room and ambient microphones, they are designed specifically for mounting to surfaces. Different heads denote subtle performance mods.
Seventh Circle Audio Modular Preamps
The 8 microphone preamps within this module were custom built by us here at the studio. Containing 3 distinct flavours, the N72 delivers the character of the highly sought-after Neve single-ended, class A, transformer-coupled console modules, whilst the transformerless C84 and single-stage A12 offer greater transparency but still with up to 70dB of clean headroom.
