In the song "Chelsea Smile" on the album "Suicide Season" by BRING ME THE HORIZON, the bass drum sound is a very short and sharp burst. It has a clickiness to it and I am curious as to how to get that sound. I have tried both completely filling my bass drum with blankets and I have tried having one blanket in the bass drum and loosening the batter head really loosely. I want to know what the best way to get that sound is.

To use a really drastic EQ and a lot of compression...

Is is always a trap to hear something recorded and mixed etc. and expect to reproduce any sound heard at home or on the gig. Hours of expensive studio equipment use and producer talent creates most of those sounds. A fact of life unfortunately .....


Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Trying to duplicate studio recordings is a losing battle. If you like "clickiness" an easy and inexpensive way to reach this goal is by simply switching to a hard beater head and a hard pad on your bass drum. Evans makes a fairly thin beater pad that offers the attack you might be looking for. Personally, I like the softer "boomy" sound rather than a "click". To get this sound I simply use a felt beater and a softer beater pad (kevlar Remo Falam or a leather Camber pad).
