So my Royer SF-12 came today. I'm in love. Tried it on drum overhead. Just the damned stereo mic 2 feet over the center of the kit in Blumlein. I'm blown away. A beautiful image of the whole kit. Best picture of the cymbals I've heard. Lovely natural sound of the toms. For some genres I guess you'd mic them individually, but not for the country/folk/blues/Americana stuff I'm doing now. They sound clear. You really don't need anything else. I suppose I'll put a mic on the kick out of force of habit, but I really don't need it. (You would for rock.) I'll put a mic under the snare for more snap. I'll throw another mic in the room. But man I am stoked!
