Agreed. When I used 421's almost exclusively on toms, I used to always gate the tom tracks in the analog days, and now in the digital days, I would cut out the places where they aren't playing. With the 177/179's, I leave them in all the time unless I'm trying to get a really tight, dry sound. The bleed they inject into the mix is pleasing. Or, some might say.......musical. LOL
