Thanks to sbisio for suggesting this recording technique (called 'Recorderman') - two condenser mics positioned equidistant from the snare and kick and that's it. It's very cymbal-heavy even though the mics were quite low behind me, so I need to work on the positions more but it's a nice sound. Maybe I shouldn't hit my cymbals as hard!

nuno1959 Isn't this related to how Bonzo's drums were recorded ?

Keep at it, it certainly sounds as if you're ''in the room'' playing ;)
