Travis Barker


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 setups depending on which band he is playing with.
