It's both funny, and a good thing, that his Queensryche jerk off threads were closed. Not sure he needed to be banned though. He's an innocent idiot, not malicious.

I'd focus more placing the stands and mics in a position that doesn't get in your way when you're playing, and on tuning your drums to get a really good sound. With every kit I've worked with, it's always been the drums and the drummer that influenced the final sound more than the mic placement.

Aesop Dekker is a great example. His playing style and the kit he plays always sounds good as long as the engineer is mildly competent. Even comparing shit-quality live videos and the albums he's played on, despite differences in mixing and production, his drums always sound incredibly distinctive.
Thanks for the input! My set up is...

- 2 Overheads
- 1 Snare
- 1 Mic for each tom (4 toms)
- Trigger module in the final input (for easier bass drum editing we aren't using the acoustic tone)

My guitarist, who does a bit of the mixing, said that the mic placement sounded great. I am a bit iffy on the overheads, possibly too much high hat (not as bad as it previously has been, and I am sure it can be fixed in mixing), but I have one overhead on each side of the kit, and slightly angled away from the kit, so I think it may just be good enough to work!

Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are opening up a restaurant in my hometown next month. Not in Kansas City, but in Overland Park, KS.

um. okay! Hopefully they'll be there for its grand opening or something.

They'll probably send Tommy.

Oh wow, sounds like you've got a full setup for just a home recording! With the overheads, you can probably compress em a bit and roll off the really piercing high end to get rid of some of the nastiness. But yeah, hi-hats are generally a motherfucker to keep in check.

Haha, yup! I recorded some drum tracks in the studio last year, just 2 days, but that costed SO MUCH (plus it was a real high end studio), so I decided that I wanted to invest in my own gear and not have to deal with that anymore (or at least not as often).

Luckily my guitarist, bassist, and the guy mastering our albums know a lot about editing and what not, so I'm sure they'll be able to fix any odd EQ issues
