Well one thing is for sure, the opposite is pretty true. "The more muffling you see on a kit the more likely it is to be being played by an inexperienced drummer". Which kind of takes us back to post #1.
You rarely see anyone that is considered a great, tasteful drummer with lots of experience having lots of duct tape and o-rings and muffling, but you can see an inexperienced basher playing with little or no muffling.
