    I'm getting set to do some recording with a drummer and have very little knowledge of how to do this. Everything I've done to this point has used either a drum machine or a track from a pro studio on drums.

    My thinking right now is that our small practice room sound pretty good. You can hear everything in the kit, and if we can defeat some of the echo on the cymbals I could probably get the drums with 2 good condensors and a kick drum mic. Since this is a low budget project I'm leaning towards this appraoch versus trying to mic the whole kit (which would need mics, a mixer, preamps, cablin etc.)

    Thoughts on this approach from people who've tried it?
