    I appreciated your take on recording drums in a small room. I have a small room at home and when my drummer and I first recorded drums it was super boomy. We ended up doing a bit of treatment with bass traps and diffusers which really helped. Sure it requires some experimentation with mic placement etc, but in the end a good drummer adds so much more to the music imo. You can also add reverb to give the illusion that the drums were recorded in a larger space. Great show!
