Took a few mic's and my interface up to our drummers house the other day.
Mic's used: SM-57, AKG-C414, Rode NT-5.
We also Mic'd the kick but it was dull as shit so I resampled it via slate but left it unquantized.
Just wondering what you guys thought of the drum sound/overall performance. This is the first time I've mic'd live drums. Will need to get something on the toms next time. Any recommendations are welcome!

They sound pretty damned nice on their own, not sure how that snare would do in a mix (a lot of the quieter hits get lost), but I like the sound of it so far. The toms need some way of being mic'd, too. They're very hard to hear. Cymbals, hats and kick sound great, too. \m/
