Re: THE DRUM MICROPHONE / MICROPHONES THREAD
I use ONLY two Earthworks TC30 mics (w/jecklin disk - homemade) on my large set-up, with two sennheiser e614 on bass drums. The overall sound field is so realistic it is literally like listening back from behind the drums. I cannot say enough good things about the Earthworks. We began recording with two Rode NT55 for overheads on a smaller kit. They sounded really authentic, but didn't perform as well up higher over the big set. After a lot of reading and research I went for the Earthworks. Couldn't be happier. We also use an Audient preamp with them.
Note: The guy I record with decided to try a couple TC20's on the bass drums. Unreal quality sound. I cannot say enough good things about Earthworks.
