Hey JC, nice photos. I have a question:
I have the same white LP's that you posted. When you gig with bigger bands, over 8 piece including horns, whats your mic set up? I'm looking to run 2 mics thru a mixer, Shure 57's for now. I'll run them thru the mixer into the PA. What are your thoughts? Is this enough?

First those LP's arent mine they belonged to the house..second..I now use the best MICS for conga drums...they are the Samson audio CO2 condenser Mics....they are also used for drum sets...they are incredible and really bring out the sound of the drums...and i have used all kinds of mics..but for me today these are it...

Man, good to see Skip.

Got the pleasure to hang with him a bit here in Los Angeles way back in 1999.
