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

I have not used the NT5s yet, so I can't comment on that. I hope to pick up a pair in September.

For overheads I use 2 AT4050s ($600 each). A Senny 421 ($300) on the kick and a 57 ($80) on the snare. I can usually get everything I need from that set-up. Sometimes I might use a condenser on the snare (km184 ($550)) for a brighter "snap" & maybe mic the toms, but only when the drummer can't seem to balance himself.

As far as pres go. I use a mackie 1402 ($500) for drums.

Always err on the side of perfection.
