I read with interest your thoughts on mixing drums and your experiences recording Matt Chamberlain.
Do you have any favourite drums, like Ludwig Black Beauty or Supraphonic snares for example? Do you dread certain drums perhaps, like over or undersized bass drums (26" or 18")? Or are you just happy to work with whatever is thrown at you?

Do you find yourself using the same mics a lot too, 421's, sm57's etc?
I'd like to know which mics you tend to enjoy using on drums.
Thanks, Chris.
