I know I should have asked the question here first, however, I was sold these mics as being the best I could get in a £400 (roughly) budget. It was made clear to the seller that I Ineeded them primarily for drum overheads, obviously if they came in handy for other instruments/vox that would be a bonus. Well, I am struggling to get a good o/h sound with these mics, anyone any ideas how I could set them up to achieve a better sound. They, to my ears appear to have a formard sound around the upper mids, however they are picking up all sorts of rubbish bellow and are harsh rather than clear and 'shiny' in the upper registers with little 'air' higher up. I cannot afford to buy new mics at present, just looking for tips to get the best out of these since it seems I am stuck with them for now. I should also say I am using only a 57 for snare and a d115 for bass along with these mics, though I have the hance of using 58's on the toms to get something a bit more close mic'd there. Many thanks.
