+1 to thread. Glyn Johns and Alan Parsons IMO captured the best sounding drums in the history of recorded rock music.

Yes, I think he said that there were no exact measurements!

In all of the pictures for the three mic technique I've seen, there is only one floor Tom.

Any comments for micing drum kits with two floor toms?

Thanks

Same thing. Same general mic placement. Adjust to taste. For instance, you can aim between the two floor toms with the 'side' mic.

Here for the gear
 

Why is everybody taken in by one person's idea on how to record a drum kit. Firstly, if the kit is tuned for stage work it will sound rubbish, each kit and drummer is individual and all need to be worked on, there is no such thing as a "correct set-up". As another "blogger" said previously, use your ears and just "play" with mic. placing until you get what sounds like it will record OK, if it sounds right, it probably is. G.Johns is a "legend in his own lunch-hour"!!!!

Because it is a brilliant method and works. No matter who made it popular he is the one credited for its popularity.

Amen to that!

He is a legend to me for much more than a drum recording technique. There must be a good reason he was there for so many legendary sessions.
