Lives for gear

In my experience, when an entire acoustic kit is miked, you still have bleed from the other drums/cymbals picked up by the hi hat mic/mics, but you're 110% right in that if the pad's thwacks are too objectionable, I can easily record a separate new audio hi hat track.

As an aside, did you know that Stevie Wonder, Leon Russell (to name a few) played and recorded each drum/cymbal one at a time, all on separate tracks?
