It is with extreme regret that we announce the passing of another industry leader and our very dear friend Keith Wilson.
Keith and the rest of the team at Audio Supply – Cathleen and Lauren (Ryann and Reese!) are family.
We mourn the loss of such a dedicated and inspiring man. At the same time, we celebrate his life finding some comfort in viewing this clip posted by NAMM – Keith was added to NAMM’s Oral history library last year.

From Our Partners At Audix USA…
Here are the final versions of the “How to mic your drums” video that were shown at NAMM.
These are the first definitive videos on how to mic your drums with clear explanations and useful examples. It is divided into 7 chapters.
Dean K has used AUDIX mics for more on air recordings than anyone else out there and Mike Snyder is a professional clinician (for Roland) who speaks directly to drummers in terms they can understand.
These videos will be on YouTube soon but for higher audio and video resolution we subscribed to Vimeo and suggest that they be viewed there. For faster viewing make sure the “high def” option is turned off. AUDIX will also be making a DVD to be included with all DP series packs.
