This.

Thats exactly the "balance" I was talking about. On the board side of things, I'd can have a drummer be a little annoyed and talk smack about how I made him "move all my crap here and there." I'd rather that than invest days in a project making constant sacrifices in sound quality to comfort them only to have them tell everyone I suck at getting sounds.

Live sound, you cater to the performer. The studio is it's own thing, I think.

Dave Lombardo sits lower than almost anyone I've ever seen play, has his toms at a pretty extreme angle, his snare angled towards him, and his cymbals very low. I've always rather liked the way his drums sound...

I'd have to wonder if he makes any adjustments in the studio.

Very low? Well, relative to the rack toms, I suppose. That pic makes my elbows tired from just looking at it!

Most of the powerful rock/metal drummers that I know sit low. The extremely fast death metal guys sit higher.

can't say i find the guys vids interesting or informative in the first place.

For modern metal i think this sounds pretty good, and i find the drummer one of the best metal drummers in the country, if not the best:

studio camera only sound:

From what I know of him I'd imagine not, he seems pretty particular about his setup.

But evidently not his!

Personally, I'd love to learn how to get these beefy, real drum sounds. (Meaning not triggered/sampled)

Periphery - The Bad Thing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elXwWxd9Ld8
The drums on the new Periphery were not triggered, Nolly is simply one heck of an engineer.

Or these drums from Taylor Larson - Even if you dislike the style, the drum production is fantastic and no triggers/samples used.

Nolly has answered a ton of questions indepth about drum recording techniques here along with other questions– scroll back a while and he lists specific mics, gear, and what have you.

Well, my comment was featured in Glenn's new video. I got a good laugh out of it, but my point/opinion still stands.

I thought I'd share because so many of you had differing opinions on his drum recording techniques.
