Greetings. I will be attempting to record a drum set for the first time ever, Monday, and was wondering if anyone would be willing to offer up any advice on getting a decent sound with what I have available. I know the kit is made by Tama and sounds pretty good live. He also has an assortment of Zildjian cymbals. I'm looking for a starting point as far as mic placement goes. From what I've gathered elsewhere on this forum, "less" is oftentimes "more" when it comes to recording a kit. The room is about 25ft by 45ft and the set is currently in a corner looking out into the room. The mics I have at my disposal are as follows: 1 - Shure Beta 52a 3 - Shure SM57 with drum mounts 2 - Nady CM90 SDC 1 - Nady CM95 SDC w/ low-cut and -10dB switches 1 - Rode NT1a LDC 1 - Sennheiser E822s dynamic Recording Through: Presonus Firepod into 1.83 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook also have ART Tube MP Studio as an optional pre-amp I have multiple mic stands and cables, so I'm only limited by the Firepod as far as how many tracks I can record at once (eight). I also have a couple of heavy blankets if for some reason anyone thinks that dampening could be required. His set consists of: 1 - Bass Drum 2 - Floor Toms 1 - Mounted Tom 1 - Snare Drum 1 - Piccolo Snare Drum Looked like 15" Zildjian Hi-Hats Again, with quite an assortment of Zildjian crashes, a splash or two, a ride, and a china. THANK YOU! In advance for your help.
