I do sound and play at Church. Our drummer has returned to our group. Even though we have plenty of channels on the mixer and lots of mics.... I want a quick simple way to mic the drums, considering setup time is limited. Our Sanctuary has a very high ceiling and it is a large room seating 1000 people. It has very lively acoustics so you almost don't need to mic the drums but I wanted to fill in the sound and have some level of control at the board. My friends kit is a simple jazz set up with snare, 2 toms, kick, high hat, ride, and crash. So here is the solution I came up with. I stuck an SM57 and inch or two above the side of the bass drum about half way between the two toms pointing up towards the snare drum. I stuck it far enough back on the kick that it could just barely "see" both toms and the ride. Also the way we set up there is nothing but air behind the drummer the closest wall or ceiling is at least 100' back. I was amazed at how well this one mic setup filled out our sound. It was huge. The only draw back I saw was the ride sounded a little funny if the drummer used a light touch on it but otherwise the sound was great. Has anyone else ever mic'ed drums live with only one mic and good results?
