I’ve been looking for a delay pedal for my leads almost forever. I went through multiple different pedals and you can read about them from my previous post. There was always something wrong, either the sound wasn’t right or the knobs turned as I stepped on the pedal or something else. For a second I totally gave up but after a while decided to give a chance to one more pedal.

I bought the Tech 21 Boost DLA delay pedal and it is definitely the best delay pedal I‚Äôve used so far. […] Read more!

Tonight live at House Of Rock, Kouvola

Tom

Tom

The tour continues! Or well, our two-show-mini-tour at least. Tonight we are playing at House Of Rock in Kouvola.

Kouvola is a city in Finland about the same distance from Helsinki as Salo but almost straight to the opposite direction. But that suits us well since we could drive home and get some sleep before getting off to the next show.

Since last night’s show was an acoustic one and today’s is a rock show, we’ll have to switch our backline from the acoustic one to the regular one too. […] Read more!

3 Tips for Recording a Better Stereo Sound for Drums

Tom

Tom

We released the part 3 of our How We Record Drum Covers video on our YouTube channel today. Part 1 was about the basics and the snare. Part 2 was about the toms and the kick. So part 3 was finally about the cymbals and how to mic them.

When mic’ing cymbals the use of overheads is especially important. But it’s important to remember that the overhead mic’s don’t only capture the cymbals but the whole drum kit. […] Read more!

The story of a drum stick, starring me as a fan girl

Otto

Otto

Here I am, having a relaxing weekend, time to scrape some blog text! First of all, I have a new drum cover out in case you haven’t noticed. This time we’re serving some All Time Low, the song being one of the many cool tunes off from their latest album Don’t Panic. And by cool I’m foremostly meaning the drum parts. As I have mentioned earlier,¬†I love how the ATL-drummer Rian Dawson¬†has kept his drumming genuine and complex during the years of the band evolving from a small pop punk band to a world-known rock band.

Shining Bright now on Spotify

Tom

Tom

I wrote about how we released Shining Bright through Music Kickup a few weeks ago and how it was on iTunes the very next day. Well, turns out Spotify isn’t quite as agile on their releases.

The single was on Google Play store about a week after we got it out of our hands. But with Spotify we still had to wait a couple more weeks.

But it doesn’t matter now since it’s out and available for streaming on Spotify. […] Read more!

What you need to record drum covers

Tom

Tom

During the past two years of recording over 30 drum covers on our YouTube Channel we’ve gotten a lot of questions on how we create them. A fair amount of the questions are about what is needed to get the sound Otto has.

We thought we’d walk you through our drum cover recording setup and share some tips on how to get a similar sound out of your drums.

On the first video we go through the basic setup we use on our drum covers. […] Read more!

Hampaat keikkakuntoon Medismilella

Tom

Tom

Kohta keikkaillaan taas ihan oikein urakalla ja se tarkottais, että hyvän soiton lisäksi pitäis myös ehkä koittaa näyttää jotenkin järkevältä. Se voi tarkottaa ehjien (tai valmiiks revittyjen) housujen ostamista tai ainakin omalla kohdalla varmasti parturissa käymistä.

Meitä pyydettiin kokeilemaan hampaiden valkaisua MEDiSMILElla ja tuumattiin, että mikäpä siinä, kyllähän tota nyt voi käydä kokeilemassa. Jesse oli vielä laivalla, joten hypättiin Oton ja Juhon kanssa ennakkoluulottomasti autoon ja suunnattiin Vantaalle Variston suuntaan.

Saatiin valkaisusta ennakkoon t√§llaset infot. […] Read more!

Hyvinkää Vlog (in Finnish)

Tom

Tom

I wrote about our show in Hyvink√§√§ a couple days ago.¬†We just posted a video on our Finnish Vlog channel on YouTube about the trip. It’s in Finnish but if you want some moving pictures to accompany the earlier blog post, you’re free to watch it. Even if you don’t understand a word ūüôā

In Finnish:

Pistettiin vlogia tiistain Hyvinkään reissusta meijän Vlog-kanavalle niinku tossa pari päivää sitten lupailin.

Osassa p√§tkist√§ on jotain h√§ikk√§√§ √§√§nen kanssa mutta ei anneta sen haitata. […] Read more!
