Octopre and Mics for drums?

Member for

I was planning on using an octopre to add 8 chanels to my 002 rig via the optic, and dedicate these mainly to recording drums. The pre has built in compression/limiting and 48v phantom on each chanel. Is this a viable solution and if so what array of mics should I be looking at to cover the job properly?
I will only have about $1500.00 to play with though.
