Im sure theirs been posts on this but I couldn't seem to find any. I mostly record acoustic music but I'm going to record a friends band and this will mean recording drums. I'm trying to buy mics for this cause I have some "band" songs i need to record as well. My setup consists of a firepod, sm57,58, and e/v 257a. Im more than likley going to trade in some old gear of mine for an akg 112. But what other mics might help me get some good sound as well. Also some good techniques would be nice as well. As for what im recording in, its a basement that has some echo. Not good or should I track elsewhere? I would like to be able to have one for the snare, kick, two toms and two overheads. It would be alright to use my 58 and e/v 257 as overheads wouldnt it? I was thinking the 57 would be the obvious choice for the snare. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
