    I'm recording my band this week and I want to have a variety of different drum sounds. There's one song in particular that I want to a have that close mic'd, dead, Fleetwood Mac sound. We're in a relatively dead space but when I add the overheads it adds too much room sound.

    Can anyone tell me how I go about this. Both with tuning the drums and with mic placement.

    Thanks in advance.

    don't use the overhead tracks much/at all.

    can also try a variety of thicknesses of plastic muffling rings, and/or taking off the resonant heads.

    the practice space kit i use sometimes has black hydrolic heads on the toms = instant total dead slap - hardly even have to tune them.

    i like open drums but there is definetly a percussive power to deadened drums.

    Thanks Mugtastic.

    It's only one song I want this sound for. I prefer open drums as well. They'll come in on the chorus.
