For those interested in discussing the intricacies of drum and percussion miking, DiMaggio’s time at the Earthworks booth on Saturday*, 1-16, from 2-3 PM and 4-5 PM will be invaluable.

Drummer/studio veteran Jeff Campitelli finds Earthworks’ DK25/R and DK25/L DrumKit™ Systems for Recording and Live Performance the ideal solutions for capturing drum sounds.
