Microphones Used: Drums- STE8, M44, M1280B
Travis Barker is an American musician and producer, most noted as the drummer for the American rock band Blink-182. Barker has also performed as a frequent collaborator with hip-hop artists, and with the alternative rock band +44, the rap rock group the Transplants, and the alternative rock band Box Car Racer. He was a frequent collaborator with the late DJ AM, and together they formed TRV$DJAM.
Dave Rat, Front of House engineer for Blink-182, says "I really like the Micro D's and M44's. Less 'clinical' than the mics I usually use and a much nicer warm low mid that really brings the toms out on top with less EQ. Plus the M44's are an 'all in one' small format mic which means they do not have that dorky external supply that the other companies clip on mics as well as the Micro D's have."
Travis has a number of set ups depending on which band he is playing with.
