Yeah, miking the drums in the studio using drum mounts cause "mechanical noise" which doesn't matter as much live but in the quiet space of a studio causes huge problems. mark me as one of the guilty ones!Well after a fair bit of messing around and taking up all your suggestions (thankyou for all your contribution) I finally found the source of the problem. I believe TNA had the closest idea, which was the vibration of the floor tom and the the sound of the skins which were interfering with each other when I had the mic placed on the drum hoop via a little mount. I picked up a short length mic stand and placed the mic on that, and there was no problem at all!
I am very happy and have got quite a nice sound from my drums. I never realised that the vibrations of the drum shell and the actual sound produced could interfere to create such an annoying problem. Anyway I hope this thread is useful to anyone who has the same problem: Mount your mic on a stand!
Check out my little recording! I would like to know what you guys think
