Default Audio Guru's: Best way to use these mic's

I could sure use some education on 2 sets of mic's that I want to use to record my kit.

I will be using 4 mic's, and already have the bass drum mic set up.

Can someone tell me the best places for these 2 mic's. I'll probably put:
- 2nd Mic about 3 feet above the snare
- 3rd mic at the snare.
- 4th either overhead above the floor toms, or on the ground between the BD batter and floor toms.

I know not everyone has used these mic's, but I'm hoping with the frequencies you can tell me their best use. Being an audio newb, I don't have a clue as to what they mean:

Audio Technica M400S Microphone:
Element: Moving coil dynamic
Polar pattern: Unidirectional
Frequency Response: 70Hz 12.000Hz
Open Circuit Sensitivity: -52dB (2.5 mV)
Impedance: 500 Ohms


Electro-Voice PL35 Drum Microphone:
Element Type: Dynamic
Freq Response: 50 Hz - 16,000 Hz
Polar Pattern: Supercardioid
Sensitivity: 2.2 mV/Pa
Impedance: 600 ohms
