Thanks. I have to admit, I got the mic idea from a recording magazine.
An engineer was saying that he only ever uses two overhead condenser
mics on drums and occasionally a mic on the kick. His point was that
drums are *an* instrument, not a collection of instruments and that you
should hear them that way. I thought that sounded pretty reasonable
(plus I only have the two condenser mics;). I guess if your drummer is
bad enough that you need to mic every drum/cymbal and try to fix it in
the mix you need to get a better drummer. I did have the mics set at
45. I had heard that somewhere as well. I can't recall where though.
