George Petersen's Recording Tip
by Mix's Editorial Director
I'm not sure how this became the "standard" way to get a drum sound, but after setting the mix levels of the kick, snare, hi-hat and tom mics, the two overheads are usually brought up last and then rolled off substantially to prevent low frequencies from interfering with the other drum mics. If the drums were tracked in a decent room, then, as an alternative, try beginning your mix with the two overhead mics (without LF roll-off), adding a touch of kick and bringing up the other mics on an as-needed basis. This approach often yields a very natural drum sound with a detailed stereo image. Give it a try!
