    Default mike system

    i've always wondered how they work and what you do.
    someone told me that you remove the bottom head off of the toms and put microphones in them. is that true?

    If you're talking about miking the toms then I suppose you could remove the bottom heads, but it works fine if you just place the mic over the top head. I'm sure you can find a nice picture of where to place it, it's not too difficult.

    you use a drum mic clip. It clamps on to the rim of the drum and you mount the mic to it.




    Or you can just use a boom stand. But that's a kind of a pain in the rear.

    The clips are fine for recording. I've been to several PROFESSIONAL studios that use the clips.

    Ringo, depends on the ones you buy. But usually between $15 - $30 a piece.

    hm. I can see that point But do they use drummagog? Because any type of clip should (If its a decent mic) Induce some kind of vibration into the microphone. Thats why its ideal (not exactly practical) to use stands. If you use a program like drumma gog i would use clips.

    Im not sure how it works. I think its as i lay dying orrrrr... i forget the other band. Maybe converge. No wait mudvayne. The microphones are mounted inside the tom. Jack plugs are on the shell of the drum. But thats only for live.

    BTW The best way to record drums is two overheads. Then use single mic's to supliment the sound where its missing in the mix (WIth a good room, distance and mics just the two OH's will work.) I did a good demo take in a tin shed with two shotgun oh's

    Dude, for what you are doing the clamps are fine. Unless you have a super professional setup, you won't know the difference.

    Ya need the clamps for live anyway. If you go super professional then dont use them. Its all about vibrations and blah blah. All in all. If eliminate as many problems as you can no matter how small and all the little differences add up. Something my friend taught me.

    I never use to like perfectionism. But its starting to grow on me even though it only creates problems. Also, fluro's arnt to nice on recordings. The way the lights work create weird energies that find their ways into your cables. (shouldnt matter on xlr's but on jacks it will) Sometimes it goes straight into your computer/recorder too though :(

    this stuff looks really cool

    prolly really expensive but the mics go inside of the drums and they would work really well I assume.

    This is what I originally thought you guys were talking about.

    Hm. I wouldnt have a problem with that live. Thats the kinda set up mudvayne use. But for recording if your taking it really really seriuosly i would go the stands and mics. And watch out for the pressure ratings of the diaphrams of the mics. Some of the worlds leading brands aint actually that great. THey may be clear but you will blow them up if you play something too loud. So be carefull when you buy.....

    I do like the looks of these though. Ill try them one day.
