Microphone gain can be used like a microscope on quietly-played brush and beater drums. The technique of playing in a controlled way and magnifying it brings all the humming sympathetic resonances of real thudding ringing drums to life in two speakers. The pure drum mic signals sound both punchy and three-dimensional. Compression and other recording processes love them too! If you need this type of tactile drumming played and recorded for your music do get in touch. I’d be very interested to hear your project.
