This is a cover of the song “Strange Times” from The Black Keys’ 2008 album Attack & Release. You can grab the notation for this song on my Transcriptions page.
I love The Black Keys, so this song was a lot of fun to cover! In this song I’m using CAD Touring 7 drum mics on the toms and for overheads; I’m using an Audix D6 on the bass drum and an Audix D5 on the snare.
I’m using a custom drum set made of Keller drum shells and Pearl lugs and rims. I worked with the maestros at Columbus Pro Percussion in Columbus, Ohio to build this bad boy. For cymbals, I’m using pair of 14″ Meinl Byzance Dark Hats on my left, a Meinl 16″ Byzance Medium Crash on my left, a Meinl 18″ Benny Greb Signature Byzance Sand Medium Crash on my right, and a Meinl Byzance Dark 21″ ride.
