I have been recording seriously for five years now and have been painstakingly searching for "that drum sound" for FIVE YEARS!!! I am looking for a Chad Smith a la Blood Suger Sex Magic meets Questlove bright snare/full Kick sound. I have read a boatload of forums on drum recording and have finally come up with a sound I am proud of. SO, I had to share my setup and will post mp3's soon. Overheads spaced pair (rode nt5) at 3 and 9 oclock four feet above cymbals equal distance from snare. I pulled the overheads back towards the drummer to pull some of the kick out of the blend and voila I got my overhead sound! Snare- sm57 above and below. I tilted the snare mics back to just over the rims to get the "Bap" I was looking for. Kick- and here's the breakthrough. D112 inside resting on a blanket facing right up against the beater skin (about two inches away), but this isnt the breakthrough.... Then I put an AKG 4033 on a small stand facing the front skin 2 feet away. The blend I get between this mic and the D112 (which I've never been a fan of on its own) is quite simply AMAZING!!! If I put this mic any further back I was getting too much kit and not enough Kick lo end. 2 feet seems to be perfect. Toms- straight up 57's on rack and floor. I opted against a room mic on this session for no other reason other than that my head was more into the kick sound. A Again I have to tell you that with no eq this is hands down the best drum sound I have captured from the many, MANY different drum recordings I have done. I had to share- hope this gives some of you a little food for thought. Peace.
