New Studio - Help with Equipment Choice

Hey fellas,

Long time lurker

Here's my basic setup for my drum set and I want you to shred me.

I have $500 for upgrades. Where do I put them.

I am recording my two piece drum and guitar band. We also record bass and ukulele. Singing for both parties. What do I buy, throw away, upgrade, burn, etc.

For my interface i'm using a Digimax 8ch w/ lightpipe and a presonus firestudio 8mic pre


Kick Mic - AKG D112

Overhead Drum - Avantone Pro CK-1 (x2)

Snare - SM-57

Toms - =( Digital Reference STX-1 (I know...)

Low Tom - Digital Reference Kick Mic (in additon to mic toms for some punch)

I am imagining a mic between my piccolo snare and hi-hat could be neat. Not sure what to use though. Just another 57?

Right now I am just going to use an SM-58 for vocals, not for long though. That's my next upgrade.

Also for my guitarists cab I am going to use a 57 and something else but not sure what, maybe a Sterling Audio ST-51 that I have lying around or something else.

I haven't done a ton of recording period so please decimate me and help me build myself anew.
