Acclaimed British Drummer Gavin Harrison Chooses HARMAN's Premium Microphones
DMN Newswire--2012-12-19--Acclaimed British drummer and percussionist Gavin Harrison, best known for playing with the progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, has invested in a large set of HARMAN's AKG recording microphones - including a pair of C12VR's, seven C414's, the new D12 VR kick drum microphone.



Gavin won Modern Drummer Magazine's readers' poll for "best progressive drummer of the year" for four consecutive years. In 2011, he was voted best progressive drummer by the US DRUM! Magazine and won the 2012 prog drummer award in Classic Rock Magazine. In 2008, he joined King Crimson as part of a dual-drummer lineup with Pat Mastelotto. Last year Gavin was a featured performer on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' as part of their "Drum Solo Week," along with such players as Neil Peart, Stewart Copeland, and Sheila E.



"I used C414's on the last Porcupine Tree studio album at AIR studios when the engineer suggested using them on the toms," stated Harrison. "I had never tried that before, but was blown away by the clarity and punch the C414's captured. They sound very even across my five toms."??
