Yeah, I'm sure you're right. I also just realized I had the low cut buttons on the three mic channels I used (SM57 on bass and two Sterling Audio condensers overhead.) I never do that. That helps explain the lack of low end in bass drum tone in this video.

I also just messed around for a very short while and tuned the toms better.

I will say that I don't find these toms as easy to dial in as others I've owned. I just haven't quite "learned" them yet, I think. I'm getting close. :)

Kinda wish I would've waited to post a video, but I'll get a better one in a few days.
