I try to go for the sound of the mix while recording.. so if it needs eq, it gets it.. Compression, gating reverb, delay etc.. I make a point to try to never move the faders, either in PT's or on my desk while recording.. that way the mix is pretty easy to recreate! Set at 0db and mix..

The kick is an old 47 Leedy with a calfskin-like head on the front, so I dampened it with a Temperpedic (Sp?) pillow resting on end against the front head.. This makes a cool sound because when the drummer hit the drums it comes off the head, then falls back on it.. if you mess with the angle you can change the timing.. making the drum longer or shorter..
