I've come to realize over the years that comb filtering has been kicking my ass royally. I always thought the whole "sart with the room" was kind fo stupid, but its really more important than any mic or preamp or mix technique. Build about 10 baffles on stands, and put them all around the drums. Really tightens things up.
After that, its gets a little easier. I'm still not nailing it perfectly, but its made me a lot closer. Snares like a little distortion on them too. Vintage warmer works well sometimes.
