I've noticed that several times. I mean his playing was brilliant and I ALWAYS enjoyed it. His snare always sounded great... but sometimes those toms (especially the mounted one) could be difficult to listen to and detracted from the performance. Still, you can take a few points away for drum tuning (err... "tensioning", sorry JDA) from one of Buddy's performances and he's still head and shoulders above anyone else! I do agree with JDA that playing ability is way more important than tuning ability!More times than not I thought Buddys drums didn’t sound so good ….
