An excellent vintage piece very well suited for drums. Tons of mojo and very fast in the creative process. Find the right space in about 20-30 seconds. Extremely well built. Only drawbacks are a mono input. The room sounds are great for drum sounds. The plates are cleaner, brighter and shorter by comparison. A great companion to a PCM80/90/91 or an Eventide H3000 for sound design/mixing Broadcast material.
