    try a Presonus Firepod. They have 8 mic pres, which is just right for recording drums. It has loads of other great features, look it up. Its $600 I think.

    For that small of a budget, about the best 4-channel pre you can get is a Sytek. Might stretch the budget just a little. Otherwise, just get a Mackie Onyx board, which is bound to come in handy anyway.

    For about $900 you could get a Seventh Circle Audio kit with 4 channels of the C84 preamp. Then you could buy some channels of the A12's or N72's at about $325 a pop as you have the dough. Building them is not too hard, and quality is top notch (unless you screw something up).
