Mobile Recording Unit

Ron's Mobile Recording Unit, roadside assistance. Laying down some tracks for The Mangled Dead at the jam space using the trusty Tascam 424 MKII cassette 4-track. Bass through the DiyRe Ferrite DI, SM58 on the guitar, simple kick-snare-overhead setup on the drums, sent into the Shure M267 mic mixer. Vocals will get done later back at HQ.

The good thing about recording this way is that I get a fairly decent room sound on the drums, and the performance is a lot more energetic. You can get good and rowdy at the practice space, and drink a lot of beer, so that helps.
