    Sure all the time.

    2 mics on acoustic-one gets pick sound one gets body.
    2 mics on snare-top gets body/attack,bottom gets the chhh sound
    2 mics on kick-close gets attack/punch, far gets sub sonic and length

    ect, ect.

    2 mic's are also always used for the various stereo techniques that one could use.....

    Nice, I really like the idea about the kick drum. I have heard the suggestion but couldn't picture the setup in my head correctly. Now i see .
    I have an Audix D6. Do you or anyone else have a suggestion for the second mic.
    I see the D112 are popular, also the ATM25

    My new fav is the Sennheiser e602.
    I used one for the first time on an album (yeah I still call them "albums") last month and was really impressed with the tone.

    To my ears it has a much less hyped tone than the D-112.
    It was rounder and bigger with not the scooped out midrange like the d112.

    For the technique I was referring to, I would suggest a large-diaphragm condenser.

    Hope this helps.

    Beta 52 inside or any good kick mic inside.....

    Any good LD condensor outside.....I like the U87.....but others work well also...
