    Anyone have any tips for micing a live drum set w/shields? I have no experience with this, however I would imagine there would be problems with the sound bouncing off the shields and back into the mics. Here is my usual setup:

    Kick - sm91
    Snare - sm57
    Toms - 421s
    OH - dpa 4011

    Any advice on placement or other mics I should try?

    What kind of schields ? I like the use of wooden schields al lot.
    Very warm reflections....

    I'm not sure what brand, but they are clear and they look like they are made out of plexi glass...
