    Kick- AKG112D or Shure Beta52 ?
    Snare- 2x Shure sm57
    Toms- 3x Sennheiser MD 421
    Overheads- sE electronic SE1A stereo pair

    Thats it.... Is there anything u suggest me to change? (sept sE mics coss i like tham).
    + im thinking to buy those sE reflection filters for drums... Does anyone have some experiance with tham?

    Also im thinking to record acoustic guitar with 2 SE1A's or sm57's? What u think?

    thx

    Except what you like I think it's good choice. I would choose 52 over 112, but both are acceptable.

    I have no experience with sE filters. IMO it's much better to DIY some real gobos to surround/tune the whole kit. You can use it also for vox and other acoustic instruments.

    For acoustic guitar I would choose SDC pair over 57.

    Alot of people swear those are best mics for guitar they ever heard im not so shure... But than again 50$ for a pair...

    don't sleep on the Audix D6 for kick. Audix i5 as well for snares (they sound better than SM57's and its built like a tank compared to the 57).

    Audix are also very very good. I would say different, not better exclusively. Can't go wrong however.

    Dude, If 57 isn't built like a tank, then what is? :shock:

    I find the I5 to be a much brighter mic then the sm57. Both sound good, it just depends on what sound your going for. As for built like a tank...Sm57 is as rugged as it gets.

    i bought a sEA1 about a year and a half ago and i think it is great for acoustic guitar. i have also had success with percussion and i use it straight into my XH-A1 camera for interviews- it sounds great on both male and female voice. in fact, i bought another this summer to have a stereo pair (can't quite afford a couple of km 184s...yet!).
    i think it is a whole lot of mic for the money, and would be interested to hear how they work for drum OH (i use a v-kit- soooo v-mics for OH!!!)).

    Yeah i know i tryed it on overheads and it sounded realy good, so i don't wanna go with any expensive options...
    Its good with snare to, but i like sm57 on it so i don't use it.
    Anyway fantastic mic for its price

    The 57 is an old panzer...the I5 is a bradley, no plastic...not that the panzer's had plastic but the 57 does. I am king of stupid analogies.
