Drum microphone choice

Hey, im looking to buy microphones for recording drums... however im on a budget. Could anyone recommend the following?

A good set of overheads budget £150-£300

Kick drum i have a audix d6. What would be another microphone that would work well with that?

Two mics for the toms.

Two for the snare. One for top and one for the bottom.

Like i said im on a budget, so bear that in mind haha. If i could get some input from all of your knowledge that would be awesome, thanks a lot.

Hey, check out my kick mic shootout on youtube.

I also have a couple overhead shootouts on my channel but the only one that is in your price range is the line audio CM3. That mic is definitely worth checking out. If you search around there are a few good posts about them here.

For snare, you can't go wrong with an audix i5 or shure 57, or one of each for top/bottom.

Good luck!
