Recording Drums Mic kit vs Individual Mics

Hi guys and girls, it's been a while... good to be back. So, after a long recording road I finally have the money to purchase gear to record drums. I'd like to ask you guys, as far as mics go if I can get a couple few sm57's for the toms and snare, use something like a Shure beta 52a for the kick and something samson or mxl that sorta price range for the overheads or, alternately just buy one of them cheap mic kits that come with the clampy thingys that you can clamp on the drums instead of using a bunhc of pedestals. Ok...

Let me know what you think!

Drum kit preference from a mixer's POV

From your point of view, do you prefer mixing an acoustic or electronic drum kit? An acoustic kit might be more challenging and fun (mic choice, placement, mixing w/ gates, comps etc.), but an electronic kit removes stage noise and gives far more control over the overall mix. What do you think and have you had the opportunity to mix both?

Electronic drum kit expansion


For example: If I had an electronic drum kit (eg a DD502) and fancied expanding it, would I be able to, for example, plugin a Roland Ride cymbal (dual trigger) into the brain, and then send the Midi out to a computer and trigger samples with BFD2, utilising the dual trigger nature of the pad?

If not, then would plugging in a single trigger pad (from another brand, again eg Roland) into the brain work as it would with the original pad?

Building an Electric Drum Kit and using Superior Drummer 2.0

I was thinking about getting an electric drum kit as it would be but i'm not really a fan of the little pads they have going about. However, all Electric Kits that have the more realistic snare/tom pads seem to be really expensive and as I am buying on a budget I wonder if it would be far cheaper to buy a base for an Electric kit, get each pad individually and buy a crappy sound module to link it all up to Superior Drummer 2.0.

How To Use Audio-Technica Drum KitPak?


I just inherited an audio technia drum kitpak. This consists of case, 4 clamps to the drums and 4 mics---2 labelled kick/tom and 2 labelled kick/snare. No documentation and I went to the A/T site and the item is discontinued with no downloadable docs. So...

Any idea on how these are supposed to be set up? I guess I'm mainly wondering proper placement using these clamp thingees...

Any links to docs?

Front of drum kit miking: how do you do it?

I read some forum threads and posts on drum recording. One thing that interests me is FOK micing (it stands for front of kit, right?). I am definitely gonna try and put one or two mics in front of the kit in addition to the the room mics. I thought it would be cool to get some inspiration on how to set them up from people who are using FOK mics.

a) Are you using one or two mics for this duty?
b) At what distance from the kit and what height do you set them up?
c) Which polar patterns are you using for this?
