Maybe it was because with Travis you heard HIS tuning, HIS drums, HIS cymbals, and his drums were condensed.
Say you got drums and cymbals exactly like Neil Peart. You can tune them the same, use the same sticks and still they won't sound anything like they do in a recording or in a setting where mics are used.
I have the Paragon ride and I can tell you it doesn't sound exactly the same as Neil's on the R30 DVD
