order, it would be a Sennheiser MD 421 on the kick, Shure
SM57 on the top of the snare, another 57 on the bottom of the
snare, 421s on top and bottom of the toms, a Shure SM81 on the
hi-hat, and another SM81 on the ride. Then a pair of Mojave MA200 mics for overheads and a pair of AKG C414s for the room.
Then I'll add a few extra things if I can. One would be a
Yamaha Subkick, which is made out of a reverse speaker on
the kick drum. I have a contraption that I like to have on the
drums, which is a garden hose with a 57 taped on one end. I
use that to add a room mic I can compress a lot-kind of a filtered room mic that makes the drums very exciting and pop
without a lot of cymbal noise.
How long is the garden hose?
Ten feet straight, it can be longer. The mic is in one side and
the other side is taped up. I usually place it on the side closer
to the floor toms and it really helps to reduce the cymbals from
overtaking the kit and the rooms.
Hard to argue with that setup.
That's the basic collection, but I will swap mics... today, since
I've got the Castle's collection, I'm using a pair of Neumann
CMV563 tube mics with interchangeable capsules, with M5
capsules which is kind of an omni capsule, on the overheads
and cymbals. And I guess we're using a KM84 on the high hat.
But for the most part I don't use expensive mics on the drums.
I don't really use anything but a 57 on the top of the snare,
usually... but I think that the angle of that mic is very important.
I talk about it in the Recording Unhinged book. If you point it
deep into the head of the drum you'll get more of a shell tone,
but if you angle that mic more flat across the head, you'll get
more attack from the stick. Those kinds of things are really
important.
