Default Drum Mic help needed!

Ok I am intersting in buying Drum mics,

but....

I have no idea what I would need to get them to work with mixers and cables and what not.

A simple guide would help on exactly everything I would need for Drum Mic recording :D

For mics it's good to get a few good ones rather than a set of cheapies. With 2 overheads and a kick drum mic you can get a pretty great drum sound. You could always buy the shure set with a beta 52 kick and 3 SM57s and that would save you money and have you pretty set up for mics.

Then you'll need a digital interface. I'm no expert here (home studio in process), but this is where you plug in the mics and it's turned from analog to digital and there's a fire wire that goes into your computer with the digital sounds. I have a pre-sonus audio interface that I haven't used yet, but everybody speaks very well of it.

Major hijack taking place here, lol. You already have your question in another thread you just opened.

lol yeah :D

Im a very budgeted drummer due to the outlook of drums that my family has >_<
But ive heard some good things from this brand called Superlux. would these be any good AT ALL? Im not too bothered about an amazing sound but a nice punchy quality sound would be great. Some personal opinion would be great, and how much would a quality Digital Interface cost?

Also are the overheads to capture the cymbals? As my main concerns are the Kick and the Snare.

Also, let's not discount the same advice we give everyone for drums and cymbals and the rest: look for used gear that will fit your needs. I see decent deals on Craigslist and eBay frequently for drum mic packages. Of course, be careful of your purchase when buying used (if possible, test the mics out before you buy). This would be a good way to get a few high quality mics for not so much cheddar.
