View Full Version : drums decision

03-05-2011, 03:45 PM
im thinking of recording my drum seshes and mixing em with the songs i play to, but im stuck on how many mics to get and what kind of mics to get. I have an acoustic set, the Tama Rockstars, and many people are recommending me 3-4 mics, each worth about at least 100. id also need to buy a separate mixer. im thinking of some audix or shures for the mics, but they each cost around 100-120. should i just buy an electric set of drums? lately, my neighbors have been complaining of my playing drums (i didnt soundproof all of my room), and the electric ones have a built in recorder, so i can save roughly $400. that would also mean selling my beloved rockstars :(
