The studio I work out of has a vintage LA2A abd two Urei 1176’s. I never use the LA2A on kick or snare and very seldom does an 1176 get used on snare. Most of the time it sounds better bypassed and I’d rather use it on room mics. 90% of the time I don’t compress the kick or snare on the way down and in the mixdown I prefer using saturation (Decapitator) and limiting (L1) over compressors. Although Novatron is really excellent for kick and snare duty.
