    I've changed my mind. Greg doesn't have a fucking clue about drums.

    I, of course, will change my mind in the morning when I sober up.

    (I just heard gunshots in my neighborhood!)

    Greg, nowhere in your post did you list what mics you use.

    To borrow from your own vernacular: "Summary please"!

    I have never experienced 'old' so I don't know. But you shouldn't be offended, you've been here over half a decade and anyway the selection process was determined by a Google search, not by me deciding who were the oldest/best avatar'd members.

    I thought about getting into mics, but there's just too many options to go into all that.

    Ready for this?

    I use the CAD Pro 7pc kit and an sm57 or pg57. I think it was like 199 bucks for the 7 mics. It may be even cheaper now.

    The snare and tom mics are decent. Not great, but okay. I use the kits "snare" mic on my smallest rack tom and a 57 on the snare. The toms get the tom mics. The kick mic is very sensitive to where you put it, but I've tried it against a Beta52 and D6, and they don't really sound any better. They just require a little less EQ. I don't mind Eq'ing the snot out of the kick if necessary. I like this little kit. It's not the best by any means, but I've heard way worse sounds recorded with much better mics.


    My kit is not set up right now, but when I set it back up, I'll post some pics.

    Haha, thanks everybody. Hopefully newbs can get something from this. I would have killed for this much info when I was getting started.

    Nice one, Greg.

    For those that don't know, Greg also hits the drums pretty hard.

    It does matter.
