Re: Todd Sucherman here!
You're not seeing those pictures?
Well, I'd love to come there. I have to be invited though, and they'd have to fund the trip! Hopefully it'll happen one day. Thanks.
Yeah, they sound amazing. Very inspiring drums to play and the combo of those toms, Audix mics going through a Focusrite 828 pre really gave me what I was looking for sonically. The tom in question is a 6" as are the Rocket Toms.
Most guys (when brought up to high speed) desire little difference between doubles, singles and paradidles---but they will always sound a little different because the different sticking changes the articulation. Different articulations will always have a slightly different sound. Just keep at it, check out your hands in a mirror, and record/film yourself. Be patient. It'll kick in.
