Well, I remember reading about the 3 Microphone Setup for Recording Drums. Being one of the guys who likes information quicker, I made this for myself. So, self, here's the technique.

  1. I usually start with a mic in front of the kit
  2. In mono, over the snare to drummers right shoulder, or anywhere in the arc
  3. Mic #3: placed next to the floor tom peeking at the snare
