    So what are you guys using as drum mics and pres.
    Thinking about another dual pre for my Kick and Snare.
    I a/b my pres with the kit and liked the Buzz and UA on everything. Although only have one spare UA channel and use the Buzz for Overheads.
    Here goes mine.
    Kick , D112 , TL Audio
    Snare, At23e, UA 2610
    Sn2, 441, Control24 (This can be bottom or side)
    Tom1&2, KM85 , Neve
    Floor, Sen603, Tl Audio
    Hats, KM85. Control24
    OH, M160, Buzz Dual
    Room, At4033, Tl Audio

    The TL sounded the better than teh Control24 and Neve on the kick and snare.

    Front of the kit (depending on tuning, room, and mood):

    Soundelux U-195 into a Daking
    Royer R-121 into a Great River MP-2NV
    Sennheiser MD-421 in a Daking
    Brauner VM-1 into a Manley
    Neumann U-47 into a Neve 1081

    Overhead(s)(depending on tuning, room, and mood):

    Royer SF-12 into a Pendulum MDP-1A
    Soundelux U-95S (ride side of the kit), U-99 (hat side of the kit) into a Drawmer 1969

    If I'm not using an 'overhead pair'...I have tried:

    Soundelux ELUX 251 top, ELUX 251 on the side of the kit, into a Crane Song LTD. "Flamingo"

    Snare: Shure SM-57 into the console

    They've all seemed to work out pretty well...often it takes a good bit of changing things around to find the best combinations.
