Default Re: micing a drummer - mics to use, cost of mics and cables

I am getting some damned hip sounds out of a Digimax 96, a Sennheiser 421 in the kick and a pair of NT5s overhead. I use other stuff (NT1 and 57s, two each) too, but could mix it out and still have a fine tone. Cost of the 421 and NT5s? Less than $550 for the three. Cables? Maybe another $60. The Digimax would sort of be the wildcard. Thats almost $1200.

Don't let anyone tell you you can't get a good tone out of 3 mics.
