Lives for gear

the concept off old drum recordings was to record a drum on a minimum of tracks. More than 4 was not possible that time i thought and often the whole band had to be recorded on that 4 track. Further were the drums of that time different than now, and everything was recorded on tube gear to tape or straight (mixed on the spot) to accetate as far as i know.

But the start is the instrument, wich was tuned lower than today, and played softer than now. Tuning a now style drum session to an old is impossible i think, you should start right with the right source.
