Default Thoughts on Drum Sound?

I am curious to hear thoughts on the sound I am getting here and how I might improve it.

Setup is Samson C02 overheads in Glyn Johns configuration, SM 57 on snare, Beta 52a on BD all going into an M-Audio AIR 192-14.

First clip is unprocessed sound, faders at unity gain. Second clip is with EQ, compression around 4:1 on all mics and drum bus (with a gain boost after the bus compression), reverb, plus a master limiter. Faders are also at unity for the processed clip.


Brooklyn, NY

They sound great, especially considering the mics used. Sounds like a well tuned jazz kit. Soloed, I preferred the non-processed sample.

I can't comment further, because it is not in the context of a mix.
