Re: Drum mics

Ive always liked the sound I get from a Shure SM57 but they are a little big if your looking for something that not so visible. This AKG "groove pack" is also a great set.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

+1. The 57 is a great mic for drums.(not kick drums though) If you want to be more invisible, try triggers.

The new Beta 98 is the industry leading Tom mic. It's a small diaphragm condenser and sounds fantastic. I have used 57s, Sennheiser 600 and 900 series, Audix D2s and D4s and the 98s sound better than them all. I'm an audio engineer as well so I spend a lot of time dialing in my toms. But the 98s are the closest out of the box Tom mics you can find in my opinion that don't take too much work to get sounding great. Get the new ones that have a direct xlr connection; the older mini connectors suck.

Re: Drum mics

Sennheiser md 421. They take quite a bit of space though.

Re: Drum mics

Sennheiser e604's are tiny, and sound good.
