Yo quest, how did you get that can sounding effect on your snare on Africa from D's album? Did you just release the snares? Was it a mixdown trick? I've been trying to get that sound all week and no luck. Did you use HOT RODS or sump'em?<BR>those CAN'T be sticks alone. Also, what brand of kit do you prefer for a live set up? You got a favorite snare? cudju lemme know?
