Here for the gear

Weird signal

hi everybody,
sorry if this is not the right section, and sorry for my english.
i have a problem when i'm recording something (always the drums) with my condenser microphones, connected to the preamp, which goes to the soundcard. i made a stamp of the screen to easily show the issue:

ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

there is that noise coming up randomly during the recording. i'm not able to see where it's coming from, and why.
hope that someone can suggest something. thanks for your help.

Does it only appear on one channel if you record two at in your picture?

If so try swapping stuff to see if it moves to the other channel.....The Mic, Cables, Preamp channel, soundcard input could all be at fault.
The fact it only happens with drum recordings seems odd though. Are you sure the drummer isn't hitting the mic??
