Glyn Johns drum mic setup: one of the truely great engineers, Glyn
Johns' credits include the kinks ,the stones,the who and the beatles,
amoung many others. His technique of drum micing is fast and sounds
great. You can use 20 mics and take 3 days to set them up, and if
you're lucky, it might sound as good as this technique, which takes
about 20 minutes. Hint: it only works well if you have a good drummer
and a good sounding room to record in...
Over (cardiod:panned Left) about 4"-6" above Floor Tom
facing Hi-Hat across Snare.
2) Over (cardiod:Panned Right) about 2'-3' above the kit facing
between the toms and snare.
mics, bottom snare mic,2nd kick mic are all optional...the overheads
work best if they are large diaphragm condensers....
