I've been recording my band for a while. We had been mic-ing all the drums with a mix of over heads and 57's and 58's close up. The mics belong to different members of the band and we just use what we have available. About a month ago a couple of band members and I wanted to record a Dylan cover as a side project. But that would mean that we wouldn't have all of the mics that we normally have here for us to use. We had to go minimal. We ended up using 2 Oktava MK-012's for over heads and a Rode NTV in front of the drum set about chest high. I was amazed at how dang great it sounded!! Much better then trying to mic everything ........ probably because of the crummy mics we were using on the toms. But that NTV seems to add something that sounds very cool and it works great with our music. I pan the over heads hard R / L and that spreads the drums out a bit. Since then I have added a 57 on the snare to this set up and I'm real happy with the drum sound I'm getting for my band. Anyway, I'm pretty excited about this and wanted to share. Anyone else using a similar mic set up on drums?
