This is a very interesting and extremely comprehensive article.

I read in the Wavelength article:

"Drummer Michael Clarke's ride cymbal throughout the Byrds' Mr. Tambourine Man (ripped from CD, Columbia CK 64845) sounded appreciably less hashy and artificial through the Wavelength Proton than through Furutech's ADL GT40."

That was not Michael Clarke on the record unless it was a live in concert recording.  Michael Clarke was a pretty face they drafted to travel and play live with the band.  In the studio, it was the famous studio drummer Hal Blaine behind the set.
