Default Re: Drums - SUB MIX or TWO MIC METHOD

Well, I was planning on starting a thread just like this one so I'm glad I found this first. Lots of helpful info.

I have an Mbox 2 (into iMac G5).

Does anyone have suggestions on affordable mixers to use if I'm going the route of more than 2 mics? (Affordable but not garbage. And by affordable, I guess I mean $150-$250 range. If there is nothing worthwhile in that range, I'm probably out of luck at this point.)

The two mics I have so far are a Shure SM 57 & an MXL 990. At present, I use the Mbox 2 as a preamp and for phantom power. If I get a mixer, will I then need mic preamps AND a phantom power box for the mics to go into before the mixer? And, if so, recommendations there?

I'm a newbie so all help is appreciated.
