drBill you are amazing!
Thank you so much for sharing these files with us! I know we all appreciate the work it takes to take the time to do, organize, and post things like this!
I've been through about half of the more curious choices and I think one sounds so good I wonder if you labeled it wrong
... definitely going to get more use in my "usual" setup (although it seems like unusual is now the way to go!).
Lot of fun to listen to these, lots of surprises!
So thank you! I am going to keep my cards close to the chest til later and see what other people come up with.

What we have here is a superb kit, brand new heads, and a drummer that knows how to tune them and how to play them.
That may be what is contributing to some of your thoughts that the mics are not a different sounding as you suspected...
Either that or you need to get your monitoring together!!!!!
