I have been looking for a base drum sound to use for my recordings. To those who are old enough to remember..... There was a bad called "Free"......Simon Kirk was the drummer. He and Paul Rodgers went on to form Bad Company. Now I think Rodgers is with Queen......... Back to drums. I just put on the Free live album or excuse me CD. That's the drum sound I want to get...... :lol: now that should take a year to figure out how to get close to that. I'm a big fan of the engineer/producer Andy Johns who is also partly responsible for Bohnams sound. He also did a lot of the Stones stuff. Simple beautiful old Ludwig kit, perfect snare, kick, toms, and those great Zildjin cymbals. It's just what I hear in my music. Not Simon Kirk as much as his drum sound, although he is a solid rock drummer and does exactly what the music needs, no more, no less.
