Default For People Who Can't Afford Mics

Recently I found out that if you can't afford mics you can use headphones to RECORD YOU DRUMS!
The bigger and more expensive the headphones the better the drums will sound.
Its not the best but it takes away background noise which is a must for recording.
I'll put a demo of it soon.

OK here are the demos
I use the Philips SBC HP170 Headphones If you noticed they are really big headphones

Also excuse me for my sloppiness im my playing, I was still sleepy because I slept late that night lol.
Just wanted to help you all.
I recorded with the headphones behind the kit and on the tom mount.
If you notice listening to the one on the tom mount.. you hear bad quality on the toms but they are more louder.
Behind the kit you don't get the ring but it lacks a bit a volume.
I couldn't do in front of the kit because it was up against the wall.

Sorry I forgot some factors that can affect the recording
I used a birch snare (cheap) and my Tama Starclassic Birch and Bubinga Kit with Sabian B8's

I just realized the own weakness of recording like this is the bass drum, but other than that i think its ok.
