Interesting interview with Dave Weckl, couldn't agree more... "My sound has been manipulated and destroyed enough back in the early days by engineers that really didn?t understand how to get a drum sound. When you think about it, back in the day, Buddy Rich ? one overhead mic and one in front of the kit; John Bonham almost the same thing. You?re recording the drums in a room in a space and that?s what the mic is hearing. It?s like putting a mic on each guitar string and expecting an engineer to mix that so it sounds like one instrument. It?s crazy when you think about it. If you?re not a drummer or if you don?t have the drum knowledge sitting behind a mixing console it?s really difficult to get that instrument to sound like one instrument with thirteen mics on it. I don?t know how anybody does it that is not a drummer 'cause you?ve got to be able to understand what the guy?s going for"
