I've been talking to a lot of drummers lately about getting a good drum sound at live gigs and it seems that a lot of them have the same problem. Even with the use of various dampners etc there still seems to be a problem in getting a good in particular tom and bass drum sound. For example we are using sennheiser e604's on the main kit and AKG D112 on the bass drum. We are also using DBX 266xl Compressor/ Gates with the kit to try and achieve that BIG sound. This is probably down to operator error mostly but is their an idiots guide or something similiar to getting a good drum sound live using compressors etc or even without using them. Cheers in advance.
