Who's the drummer?

Every listening drummer hears tracks that impress them drum-wise, and some then wonder who the drummer is.
Is anyone aware of any reference source?

Re: Amplified Bass drum sound problem.

Thanks to you both. Sorry! I got the mic detail wrong; it is a Sennheiser 602 which is a bass drum mic.

Amplified Bass drum sound problem.

Mid/high level kits.

Which kits are considered mid level, which are considered high level? Not only in terms of price but, as important, in terms of sound.
Players' opinions, please.

Re: Chad Smith Snare or Acrolite

Thanks. The drum already has a power center reverse dot and an ambassador snare head. A Puresound upgrade is worth a try, which do you recommend, steel or brass, blaster or custom?

Re: Musicians who don't want to rehearse

For a (mainly) covers band, what works best is when all members do their homework so at rehearsal, it should just be about gelling together and agreeing to any changes to the original arrangement....
