    Goshenmos, first welcome to the Chat! you picked a good site for your drumming Q and As, well to answer question, there appears to be a few things going on that you may have already noticed, like the tape and what looks like a small bag of silica sand
    (at top) that mixed with the sound man is how they probably got that deep Hand Drum kinda sound. Its all about experimenting dude so good luck, oh and very interesting sound from these boys thanks for your post
    Enjoy the Music!

    Welcome to Drum Chat goshenmos!

    Marty nailed it. Just keep in mind that whenever you see a microphone, that drum sound is being manipulated by more than a drum key.

    yep marty and pastor bob nailed it . very muffled. and processed. sounds like the bottom head is also muffled. so id say, some duct tape and a few moon jels and you could sound pretty close to that.
