micing a 4 piece drum kit with limited microphones

Discussion in 'Drums' started by blake eat world, Aug 28, 2001.

  1. ok, you have two extra tracks micing a 4-pc drum kit and you have no mics on your toms and also no room mics. Do you set up two stereo room mics or two tom mics?

    Two questions:

    What sound are you after?
    What does the room sound like?

    The answers should help you decide!

    yeah, it really depends -- i'd go for the room mics myself, but if the room sound isn't happening, mic the toms.
