personally i love the sound of travis smith's (trivium) toms. his bass has a nice deep sound 2, but is snare isn't the greatest.

Carter Beauford has, in my opinion, the best sounding kit out there.. that hi-hat................. oh man

honorable mention to Chris Adler, Danny Carey (Lateralus), Dave Weckl, Billy Cobham and Bill Bruford.

John Bonham's drums on Led Zeppelin IV, especially When the Levee Breaks. And I know this is obscure, but Steve Ferrone's drums on Tom Petty's Wild Flowers album have always been one of my favorites

the way they did the When the Levee Breaks drum sound was great. they had the drums at the bottom of a stairwell with one mic above them and one mic at the top of the stairs.
Beat on.

I really dug the drums on Slipknots first CD. They sound really low and fat! There are a lot of local bands here in Gallup New Mexico that have some amzing fat and deep sounds. They sound like the tribal navajo drum which is really deep and fat sounding. Thats alos how I tune my heads!
