    without knowing the room or set up it's impossible for me to say which will work best on what but this is a guide as to which mic is good for which application. half the fun is experimenting.

    MD 421 kick / toms
    Oktava MK-012 overheads / hi hat
    AKG D190C snare / toms / kick
    5x Beyerdynamic M69N snare / toms / kick
    - 1x Audio Technica AT4040 overhead / floor tom / kick (outside of drum)
