On the recordings

Like Superior Custom and Vintage, Superior Vintage ADD-ON was recorded at 2KHz Studios, London using an EMI TG Desk. 2KHz’s TG is an ex-Abbey Road Mobile console (1964 design) with a 28 channel /16 track configuration, with Germanium Transistor Mic/Pre's.

During the Superior Custom & Vintage sessions, the studio management let it be known the EMI desk was to be replaced. We couldn’t let that pass without recording one more session in that room with that desk – It was the last chance. The resulting recordings make up Superior Vintage ADD-ON.

On the drums

Together with Custom & Vintage, this collection brings together many of the drums being used by the world’s top studio drummers. Even though most drummers endorse a single brand, widespread use of vintage and custom built instruments is common in the studio scene.

Ludwig Keystone

The Ludwig Drum Company had no idea what was about to hit them in the months following February 9th 1964, The Beatles U.S. television appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The band were a sensation and almost overnight everyone wanted to own a set of Ludwig drums just like Ringo's.

Gretsch Round Badge Drum Set

At the same time Ringo Starr was playing Ludwig drums, Charlie Watts - his opposite number in The Rolling Stones - was playing Gretsch, another classic American brand. The 'Round Badge' era of Gretsch drums has been the choice of the most important jazz drummers in history and still is among contemporary players. The Superior Vintage ADD-ON also features Noonan, Slingerland and WFL snares and Steve Hubback Custom Cymbals.

Superior Vintage ADD-ON was engineered and produced by Grammy winning producer Peter Henderson and played by world renowned session drummer Chris Whitten.

The Studio

Superior Vintage Add-on was recorded at 2KHz Studios, London using an EMI TG Desk. 2KHz’s TG is an ex-Abbey Road Mobile console (1964 design) with a 28 channel /16 track configuration, with Germanium Transistor Mic Pre's.

The TG console was EMI's very first transistor design and was used for many legendary recordings of the early seventies including The Beatles' Abbey Road and Pink Floyds' Dark Side of the Moon. It is considered one of the best sounding desks ever made.

The drums were recorded with a selection of vintage microphones by Neumann (including valve U67’s on overheads and KM 56’s on toms), AKG and Sennheiser.

As an added feature one of the room microphones (a Neumann U87) was processed with a Helios F760 compressor, the type found in early Helios 1970's consoles as used by Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Rolling Stones and Apple Corps (The Beatles own studio).
