Default Re: Miking Drums; where to start...?

Apparently, I need 1 mike for each head, right?
What about cymbals? I don't need one for each do I?
Plus, I heard I should think of buying a mixer and/or an application?

Yes, noob questions, I know... But, everyone's gotta start somewhere! ^^.
Any help please? :s
This subject is a juicy one. Please read the following link for one of the most popular and economical drum mic method ever. It is really simple and the results are mind boggling! Also, make sure to check out youtube for real time setup demos, equipment information and recording results from engineers who discuss this method. Hope this helps (OK I know it will)
