im on tight budget whats the cheapest way to mic my drums and what are some mics i could use?
Yes im sorry i guess u guys do need more info. Im mainly looking for live and some recording but i may end up doing a good bit of recording.If you want to use more them one mic at a time then yep, you need a mixer.
I think we all assumed this was a given so we did not talk about it.
I think we all also assumed he was talking about live performance.
maybe we need more info?
For a single bass drum one mic is all that is needed, if you are running two bass's then 2 mics. It will help if you get a true bass drum mic that is designed to handle the frequency. Something like the Audix D6, Shure Beta 52 or, AKG D12.Hmm I noticed bass drums are really quiet on recordings, but my band is only using 1 mic to record everything, should I get a couple bass drum mics and run them through the port holes?
