It's the same on all the Springsteen records. Rimshots on a low tuned snare.But that snare drum sound is a dream rock and roll sound to me. Big and warm with just enough crack to get over in the mix and not a bit more.
The first few records I played on I hated my sound. It was unexciting, lacked power. Then I watched Jerry Marotta slamming rimshots and I realised I had never knowingly played a rimshot in my life before (after four years of music college!!!).
It took me a few weeks to achieve somewhat accurate rimshots, then another several months to actually achieve professional quality, accurate (same timbre, same volume) rimshots.
