Mickey Hart (of The Grateful Dead) brought his private collection to Studio 1 in tandem with Remo. The producers recorded an arsenal of drums, wood and metal, handpicked by one of the world’s greatest percussionists of his entire career. “With SD3, we focused on capturing Mickey’s unrivaled percussion collection in the best possible multi-sampled form. It’s very flexible. And note that even the close mix includes an 8-mic input. This virtual instrument is his legacy, and mine too,” says producer Nick Phoenix.
