EL Distressors on Drums

Hi Jay,

Thanks so much for your time and contributions over the years.

Do you use Distressors on the drums?

If so... how? On kick/snare separately, room mics, full drum buss, parallel sends vs. straight buss inserts?

Sometimes I add another mic to the snare (maybe an AKG-414) and use the Distressor on that mic. It might not sound great by itself, but when added to everything else, it works. I've also used them on room mics, but only if they can be stereo coupled.
