tom mic shootout

not fully scientific and terrible playing for sure but interesting comparison of 6 mics i had access to that are commonly used to mic toms on a kit.
all 6 mics were placed in aprox the same spot and a single pass was recorded using the same pre (8 ch gama).

i was very interested in not only the drum sound but the off axis sound.
