Amazing what a simple 1 and 3 on kick will do!
Agreed. I am a bit of a high end stereo buff and I believe their stuff sounds great. That proves rock bands can sound good and not compress the hell out of themselves. (Though Mighty High is a heavily processed remix album. Obviously that is called for with the remix sound they were going for)I am definitely a fan of Gov't Mule.
I saw them in Atlanta about 2 years ago. Matt Abts drum sound was very big and powerful. He played a lot of double bass licks in certain songs and the sound was massive. He got a great sound out of those Pearls.
The whole band works with really good sound engineers and producers.
