i have only four microphones to record the drums with. we do it in a very large open room. usually we put one in the bass drum, one in between the hi-hat and snare, one overhead, and one near the ride cymbal and the floor tom. Sadly this is all recorded onto one track. So all the mixing of the drums must de done before it is recorded. then when eq it, it eq's the whole drumset. the circumstances apply with compression and any reverb.
