I thought you might use short ambient reverb on the hats or a big long slushy one on the cymbals maybe??

Just room mics and overheads?

That suits me, I just thought I was maybe missing out on something - I agree, reverb just does sound fake on drums, no matter what I've done with it .
I've found the short decay reverbs are generally more fashionable sounding.

I just recently had to do this moody, sorta snow patrol indie track and the drums have an ambient quality to them. When I've got them upfront their too bulky and in your face, reverb them and its instant '****e'
Ideally, I'd quite like a bit more of a phil spector vibe on them.
