Well im getting ready to record really soon and i was wondering where to place the overhead mics. I am currently rocking about 13 cymbals and please no one lecture me on how 13 is to much. I play thrash metal and do alot of ride work along with various complicated splash and Chinese patterns while playing. I am triggering the toms and bass drums and i am miking the snare in two places which i already have got figured out. I was just wondering for such a huge package of cymbals where should i place the mics considering i do alot of ride splash and Chinese work? The picture that i have hopefully uploaded is my current setup minus all the toms on the right. It is missing two cymbals and everything is generally in the same place. So where would you place the mics?
