Default Re: Bill Ward

Guys I need some help. The band I'm in are doing some Sabbath covers, particular from the first 5 albums, the "classic ones". My question is how he hell did Bill get his drum tone/sound especially on the Paranoid album. I know he uses the butt end of his sticks for extra power but that's it. His tom tones sound like nothing else I've ever heard from other rock drummers. On songs like Faires Wear Boots, Rat Salad and Children of the Grave, ect for instance I could swear that the toms sound almost down tuned but I can't be sure. I want to get as close to his sound as possible.

What Would Ian Paice Do?
