    Sorry I dont know that spec. song you are talking about. However keep trying to locate someone that may have contacts with anyone that has something to do with Chevelle. Or try to contact the studio that recorded the album. Keep trying!!!! You will surely learn something in the progress.
    I do know drummers love the API stuff.
    Good luck on your tom sound
    FYI------I use API 3124+ pre amps
    and Audix D4 on toms

    The first reason the sound awesome is cause he uses a awesome set, a pearl master's i believe, having recorded many a variety of drum kits, the quickest way to a good sound is a good kit and a good drummer, honestly i believe that those two things matter tons more than what mic, preamp, and processing. So i'd suggest the first thing to do to get that kinda sound is invest in a good sounding drum kit and then tune it well (tuned to notes that occur often and sound good in the song).
