I was at Ozzfest 2007 in Holmdel, NJ a few days ago... was anyone else there? Great shows were put on by many bands. As a bassist though, I was pretty upset with the way the sound was handled. I've been to a few metal shows, and in every performance I've seen, the bass drums are always so loud that they blend with the bass guitar to the point where your body is just being bombarded with low end. Has anyone been to a metal show where the bass was discernible from the bass drum?
