Budding recording engineer here. The mic seen on the BD is not recording.
Two bars of cell phone audio then the room mic comes in. My cell phone is right under the room mic so you get an idea of how far away it is from the drums. 12-15 ft maybe. I understand why people can get addicted to this compressed drum sound for almost everything. No reverb needed. Headphones recommended.

Sounds huge and natural. (This is your moment Sinc-I’ll leaving the joke for you)

Hahaha nice. Your joke already works. I laughed too.
I started recording drums with a specific outcome in mind and always have a room mic up now. Of course that large kit lends itself to the compressed room sound. I was still surprised by the one mic.
