New tune ‘Damage’ sounding pretty good – recorded the drums with two mics that worked really well, getting much better sounds from the toms and snare – better impact (attack), without cymbals or hats being too loud or quiet (image below – click to expand).
You will likely need to adjust the position of the condenser mic to best effect – I got it as close as I could without obstructing my drumming. This has been a pretty good two-mic solution to recording drums.
