This track is a version of an old classic. We wanted the drums to be right on the spot, so instead of trying to eq the recording, we did a lot of work with tuning and choosing the right drums. There was also space for a kettle drum and some ambient percussion. Drum recordings are always time-consuming, but it was worth the extra time to set the mics and get the drum sound right from the beginning.
