Drums can sound completely different depending on where they're played

Wow, this is really cool. Audio Zéro recently made a video called Wikidrummer that shows how the same song on drums can sound completely different depending on where the drums are played. Out in the field, on a road, underneath a highway, inside a garage, in the park and so on can change the overall feel of the drums and make it sound louder, heavier, punchier, lighter and so forth. The snare gets especially gnarly.

Audio Zéro claims that no artificial reverbs were added but there's a healthy discussion on Reddit with skeptics wondering how it's possible. If you're interested, the making of the video (in French) can be seen here.
