Re: drum mics
Really depends on the bar/club. I've come across quite a few where the sound man really didn't have a clue, as far as I was concerned, especially in smaller places. A lot of them do not want to deal with any drum that has more resonance than a cardboard box. In such a place, I would rather have them mic only the bass and snare.
The better clubs often have really good equipment and personel. It pays to learn all you can about mics, placement, gating and EQing, so if you play in a place with house sound, talk with the techs and pick their brains.
