    Depending on the kit and style of music it's going into, a minimum of 6 tracks to upwards of 10.

    You didn't give an option for "4", which might be the most common answer.

    I really like 4 (1 snare, 1 kick and 2 OH) but I've got a new drummer that hangs out here and he's got 3 snares on his set up. I've had to put up extra mics for the extra snares. I'm struggling a bit to get a good sound from this set up.

    I use 4 sometimes (bass, snare, 2 oh) and sometimes I'll add 3 for Toms and add 1 for a triggered bass drum...so up to 8.
    But this guy must use 20 +
    Look at all the freaking mikes!!

    Typical set up as of late:

    Track 1- Bass Drum (AE-2500 Condenser)
    Track 2- bass Drum (AE-2500 Dynamic)
    Track 3- Overhead Left (Peluso CMC6)
    Track 4- Overhead Right (Peluso CMC6)
    Track 5- Front of Kit (either an AT 4033, SP-C1, or Peluso 22-251)
    Track 6- Snare (either SM57 or e906)

    The overheads are usually in an ORTF or X/Y config
    The snare mic is used more to help punch through a mix if needed
    The front of kit mic is my "secret weapon" (shhh- don't tell anybody ) and I'll choose which mic depending on the type of kit and type of music
