When recording drums I commit from the start any compression or EQ I am using. That being said, I try to cut drums as flat as I can however I do EQ the kick and snare . I hi pass the overheads
at around 80hz to keep out any unwanted low end.(by the way , there is a lot of good low frequencies in the cymbals) . what I do in the recording is take the drum sound "half way there" to the
mix sound. I am not afraid of committing sounds generally . When recording I have the finished "sound" in mind . My whole production technique is focused on the final mix. I have that luxury
since I always end up mixing what I record.
