Ok, I've got a Ludwig Element drumset set up in a small room that I've treated with homemade rigid fiberglass panels. And until recently I had a pretty minimalistic mic setup: Shure Beta 52a (Kick), Shure SM57 (Snare), 2 Peluso CEMC6 pencil condensers (Overheads). ...But then I added Tom mics (3 Sennheiser e604's to be exact) and my already crappy recorded drum sound got 10x crappier. Oh, I could hear my Toms...ALL THE TIME! Anytime the beater strikes the kick drum head the toms resonate right into the e604's and it sounds terrible. I've tried everything, moongel, different tuning, etc... I'm not sure what to do, even clapping my hands in the same room causes the Toms to sing. I've even done this same handclap experiment outdoors and the toms ring out just the same. To demonstrate, here is a link to the recorded problem: kick drum causes toms to resonate by Johnny Repass on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free What I did was start out with only the kick and overhead mics on while I kept a steady kick beat. After 4 beats I turned the 3 tom mics on. I alternated between tom mics on and off several times before pausing to put moongel on the toms and repeating the demonstration. Also, I should note that my mic placement isn't an issue and that the mics are mixed naturally. The tom mics are mixed in at roughly -7dB or so compared to the kick mic. Overheads are about -5dB. Thanks for any help anyone might offer!
