Just this morning, I received an email from Shure Artist Mike Mangini with a link to a video he made. He talks about the Shure mics he used to capture the tracks for the new yet-to-be-released Dream Theater record.  It was a pleasant surprise to hear from Mike, let alone get a video.  This is another great example of the reciprocal relationship that an endorsement brings with it.  Mike and I have known each other for over 15 years, met at many conventions like PASIC and the Modern Drummer festival, and at shows he was performing at.  I was so happy for Mike when I heard that he was going to join Dream Theater.  I have been a fan of their music for quite a while and I felt he was great fit for the group.

Even if you are not a drummer, it would be worth your time to look up some of Mike’s video’s and playing on YouTube.  He’s quite an inspiration.

Here’s the video he sent me this morning:
