Hey guys, I have a few more question for the recording pros in here in regards to drums.. how much time do you usually take to get the drums sounding like you want them to prior to starting a recording? What kind of mics do you use to mic the toms? We are currently using 4 apex gooseneck mics - 2 for top toms and 2 on the floor toms. They sound good by themselves but once the bass drum is braught into the mix they get drowned out a bit and sound muddy...we were thinking about swapping the gooseneck mics for some sm57's...think these will work better? Perhaps mic placement is our problem...is there a specific way to postition the goosenecks? Do you use a drum tuner? Thanks for your help!
