    Can anyone give me some tips on how to get that 1/2 timbale, 1/2 snare sound you always hear on reggae albums? I have been experimenting with head tension and snare tension at the throw-ff, but I'm just not getting that real rootsy, reggae/ska sound.

    I would imagine that the sound originally came from a combination of low-end drums and low-end recording, but it is perfect for the reggae vibe.
    Any tips would be appreciated.
