What's your approach to EQing drums? Is it all by ear or are there certain frequencies you tend to boost/cut? Do you try to level the range you're interested in or keep it's original shape?

I just squidge things around until they sound interesting. A bit like shaping clay.

There are frequencies I tend to boost but only because my mixer EQ has top and bottom shelves set at 12khz and 80hz. Otherwise I just fiddle about until I'm done.
