Barry wants your At­ten­tion…

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Shine­down drum­mer Barry Kerch has been fill­ing Rhythm in on the wealth of kits and tones you can ex­pect on the Florida rock­ers’ new al­bum, At­ten­tion At­ten­tion. It seems Barry and drum tech to the stars Mike Fasano clearly had a blast, with Fasano’s in­cred­i­ble haul of kits avail­able for the ses­sions.

“It was a breath of fresh air to ac­tu­ally have real drum sounds on the record and not just re­placed sam­ples,” Barry tells us. “We used a mod­ern Gretsch kit, 1960s Lud­wig jazz set, and a DW mod­ern jazz kit. Also we used a large col­lec­tion of snares and all sorts of per­cus­sion and other drums for loops and such. For the ses­sions in South Carolina at Eric’s [Bass, Shine­down bass player] stu­dio we flew Mike in to tech, but used my gear and some ofEric’s col­lec­tion as well. Pri­mar­ily my Pearl Ref­er­ence kit, my Lud­wig 1960s jazz set, and a ’90s DW clas­sic kit.”
