I think I might have to try that...roughly how high up, and how far away from the kit do you normally go?

....but as for the sound? (I hate trying to describe the sound of something) To me, for lack of a better description, the mic has an upside-down smiley face curve....it's got a bold lower, and upper mid thing going on. I wouldn't say it could be used for everything, but when it's right, it's right. For example, we tried it on a number of acoustic guitars and it wasn't my thing, but on drums, piano, and heavy electric guitars, it was quite something. (Again, my opinion, someone might love them on AC guitars....)

Only had the mics for a few months, we demo'd them, and decided to keep em. I'm excited to try them on more things.

Long-time lurker in this thread but never posted anything ...


I run a small-ish single room studio and had a great drum session over the last few days: a (nu-)metal(-ish) band in which I play bass, with tracks to be mixed by a world-renown mixer. So honored to be part of this project and trying to get the most out of it.

Normally I do a lot of sessions where there's almost no time to set up or one-day tracking & mixing dates. This time I had a whole day to sound check, what a luxury!

beautiful kits and mics!

everyone here has some pretty beautiful setups ...
I don’t have any pictures to share,
but I did want to ask if anyone has used, with positive results, the Beyerdynamic M422n ? it’s supposed to be unique in that it’s kind of built in with a high and low pass filter, but supposed to be excellent on drums. Maybe that makes sense in a live setting, but what about the studio?

Another weird mic I’ve heard of is the Yamaha MZ series, the 204 and 205 i think. anyone have any experience with these? I don’t see them much, or hear much about em, but always wanted one (anyone have a good set they want to sell?

one day i’ll get a good setup going and shoot you all a set of pics.

and just so the post has a little give and take, if anyone hasn’t tried the Audix SCA25a’s as overheads, they were very surprisingly great, quick, needed very little eq, but took to it well when added. And a budget line is those old Groove Tubes / Alesis AM62’s ... a bit subjective on the high end, but as room mics, they really shine.

Used the Yamaha MZ series of mics for several years, they were some of my favorite drum mics. Yamaha only made them for a few years and they are very hard to find. A studio I worked at had two full sets, We usually only used them on toms and never experimented with the MZ 204 I think was the larger mic on Kick, usually just toms 205 hi and mid, 204 on the floor. If you can find them buy them!

I have one Yammy MZ205be in my snare drum mic arsenal. It can tame the brightest snare with the greatest of ease.
