    Creating this drum sound...

    I know questions like these can be annoying but could anyone give me any pointers as to how to create a similar bass drum sound? - It's not that I'm going to attempt to imitate it, I'm just curious.

    YouTube - Modest Mouse - Third Planet

    I just love the way that it sounds, especially around 3:42.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I'm no expert, but, I don't that is just a bass drum. I can hear some low toms ringing in there. At the beginning of Good Bye (my bands song), I made a thread of it. The bass drum in the beginning is bassdrum plus floor Tom and rack Tom 2.

    Yeah that just sounds like a natural bass drum with the help of a room mic. Use both heads, tune it for boom, and don't muffle it. Let the other drums ring along with it.
