$60 for pickup (+$20 for shipping).

This pair of 2015 Sabian 13" Hats are in great condition. Been kept well and used in a professional recording studio. Limited wear and sound great!

From Sabian:

This pairing delivers tight, clean sounds when closed, and loud fullness when open. Sabian 13" SBr Hi-Hats are the best value in pure brass, ideal for beginners. With hammered and lathed surface, tightly focused sound and nice price, SBr is in a class of its own.

STYLE: Focused
METAL: Brass
SOUND: Bright
WEIGHT: Medium

Having some fun re-amping bass guitars for the 3rd Shawn Hatfield - Musician/Writer album.

Sending from Pro Tools/Studio One through the console and then the amp in the live room. Put a Sterling S50 off center a few inches away.

Then it hits the PreSonus
TubePre, the Warm Audio WA76, a vintage BiAmp 210 graphic eq, back through the console and DAW.

Light saturation on the pre, maxing at -2db on the comp, and cutting quite a bit on the eq with a boost on the high-mids. This 210 adds a surprising amount of nice analog character!

Having some fun with synths today! The ARTURIA Analog Lab 3 is such an awesome and distinctive virtual instrument.

Complimenting the #synth with #VMR by Slate Companies. Starting with the NY Pre with the saturation set high with the #mix low. Then VCC Brit 4k E. Then FG-A with OpAmp on. Then FG-116 with slow attack, fast release, #ratio at 4, and mix at 50. Lastly is the FG-N with a few boosts and cuts with some #drive.

Working on the delay buss for guitars!

First, the Slate Companies VTM is always nice for life and musicality.

Up next in the chain is the H-Delay by Waves Audio. Learned a lot about the H-Series from Dave Darlington in the Waves mixing course.

The Ozone Imager by iZotope is an amazing stereoizer to help with your spread. Sounds great on a delay!

Working on some synths, electric keys, and guitar today!

Really loving the XLN Audio Addictive Keys Electric Keys. Very unique range of tones and included fx available. The Waves Audio J37 is added for some analog tone & saturation. One of the most versatile tape emulators out there. Then the S73 by Softube
on the wide mix setting with added ambience. A true
#bettermaker plugin!

Mixing the third album by Shawn Hatfield - Musician/Writer. Lots of big fuzzy tones coming from these tracks.

Today is snare sample day! Rather than completely replace the recorded snare, we blend in a snare sample from Superior Drummer 2.0 by Toontrack - Ludwig Drums Black Beauty (a classic!). Keeping most of the virtual mics active for good ambience, space, and room sound.

To lessen the digital-ness of the sample we've added in Slate Companies VTM and VMR - VCC on Brit 4k G, FG-S, and the FG-401. What is your preference on using ssmples? Do you like replacing or blending? Let us know your technique in the comments!

Online Rock Guitar Lesson 3: Moveable Major Scale

In our third online lesson, Shawn discusses the 2 octave, 6 string major scale. This scale shape is moveable. This means that you can start on any fret of the 6th string, follow the left hand shape, and still result in a 2 octave major scale. Pretty cool huh? (Free PDF chart below!)

Starting in the key of C (no sharps, no flats) then transposing the scale to G major (1 sharp, F#). Don't forget to practice different rhythms (1/4, 1/8/, and 1/16 notes) as well as alternate picking, tremolo picking, and slurs. Learn the scale before making things too difficult on yourself!

https://mailchi.mp/11175c977e6c/mikamulcahysummertimesadness

As some of you may know I've been writing my debut album this year (due this Fall)... and I was looking for inspiration. At the suggestion of a friend I went back and took a look at some of the songs I know and love. This one jumped out.

Lana Del Rey has been one of my favorite artist since the album Born to Die. She's the inspiration for my daughters namesake. I sing this song all the time, even my kids know this song by heart! While doing the dishes I created my own harnomy for the song Summertime Sadness and myself, "I wonder what it would sound like if I put a MIKA twist to Summertime Sadness?"

I decided to try it for fun. So I sent my version over to a local producer and arranger. After hearing the end result I was carried away, so I decided to release it for you!

I really hope you like it, and I hope the song stays true enough for fans of Lana, while also giving an edgy new spin on it! 🤘🏻

P.S. If you like what you heard please share this song with someone you think would enjoy it!

Thanks to Groove: Music Lessons + Recording and Warren Hayford for the great work!

Online Rock Guitar Lesson 1: E Chords

Premiering our free Online Rock Guitar Lesson series with Shawn Hatfield, we start by talking about the E power chord, E5, E Major, and E Minor.

The E Power Chord and E5 are often used synonymously, however there is a slight difference. The full power chord has the higher octave E included to give it the "power" it's missing.

See you next week!

Love the @sslaudio E Channel by @wavesaudio on acoustic guitars. Here we have two acoustic guitars with just slightly different settings for a wide left and right.

Some filter, EQ, compression, and console character! Set too similar settings and you'll lose your width.

King St. Band debut album out this Thursday, Dec 20th!

Loving the McDSP 4020 Retro EQ and 4030 Retro Compressor on this guitar room mic! King St. Band

It's so nice to have 4 bands, HPF, LPF, and an I/O section for EQ. Very #versatile and #analog sounding!

The 4030 is an amazing vintage sounding #compressor. We have the threshold cranked but the mix knob really low for some subtle agression!
