Hi guys, I'm sure a few of you have had experience w/ different micing techniques for drums, and was wondering if you could offer any advice. I have three microphones(right now I can't afford much more) a Shure SM57, SM58, and, a Rode NTK. Obviously this is not the most ideal set up but I'm looking for a great 1960's drum sound. For the most part I seem to achieve this, but have a hard time controlling the cymbals in the mix. They often tend to be much to loud(even if I change my playing dynamic) and give off a biting shrill sound. I'm looking for a shimmer that's not to loud, I'd really like the cymbals to be barely noticeable. The cymbals I'm currently using is a set of Sabian XS crash/ride, XS regular crash, and a set of XS hi-hats. The cymbal setup is modest, but unfortunately not ideal. I have a Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz kit, and have no prior knowledge on recording drums. Are there any effective mic placement techniques you could offer? Is there any unique techniques to control cymbal volume? Techniques differ from today, but what types of mic set ups would they use to record drums in the 1960's? I'm aiming for something modelled after Hal Blaine or Ringo Starr. If that helps. Something so subtle you almost don't notice them.
