Hi, I am looking into getting some recording equipment to mic up my drum kit. I am studying music technology at A level so I have some idea of what is required.
My kit is a single bass durm, 4 toms and a snare, with 6 cymbals including hats. What would be the best way to mic it up 2 on snare, 2 over heads and one on bass drum, or just one on snare 2 overheads and one bass?
Also should I buy seperate mics of a drum mic kit?
I know for the bass drum I need a special bass mic for low frequencies but for the rest of the kit would condenser mics be fine?
Lastly at college we use AKG C2000 mics which are £100 each, would these be good mics to use for overheads and on the snare drum?
