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

It depends how serious the recordings etc.. are. I would recommend a mic for your snare, a mic for the kick, 1-2 overheard mics depending on your cymbals and set up, and2-4 mics for the toms depending how many and how serious you are about the recordings. You can float one mic over 2 toms on a boom and still get a good sound. This is just my personal way of doing it. Some people prefer less mics some more. it also depends how goo the mics you get are.
