I stopped recording about 8 years ago and just recently decided to get back into it. I have a decent set of drum mics but they do not include any "overhead" mics. I ended up using two large condenser mics that I normally use for vocals but what I'm finding is that the snare comes out really loud, not giving me much control over the SM57 I use directly on the snare. The more I turn down the overheads in the mix, the less of high hats, ride, and other cymbals I get, making the drums sound kind of muddy. I guess my actual question is, will a matched pair of small condenser mics give me the cymbals I want without the overbearing snare, or will they be the same? I realize this is a very basic question but at this point, I need very basic help. Thanks in advance!
