Used on *Anthem of the Peaceful Army*, as stated by mix engineer Al Sutton in this January 2019 *Sound on Sound* interview. > (...) "I take the Glyn Johns setup as my basis, with an overhead and a side mic equidistant from the snare — I use two drum sticks to measure the distance. I used to use two Mesanovic M2 ribbons for this, but now use two Neumann U67 mics. In addition, my kick mic is the AKG D36, and my snare mics are the Shure SM57 and Neumann Gefell M300, held together by an X clip. I have a mic pointing at the side of the snare which often is called the 'wurst mic' [a term coined by German engineer Moses Schneider for a saturated lo-fi drum mic that delivers a sausage-shaped waveform — Ed.]. I used to use the Neumann UM57 for that, but now it's the Sennheiser MD441. It's really pointy and effected-sounding, and technically you can use that mic for your entire drum sound. My room mics are two Mesonovic ribbons, in a Blumlein setup. All drum mics went through the API, straight into Pro Tools."more
