Drums with ONE mic, how about this?

Drums with ONE mic, how about this?

In my recent quest to simplify and challenge myself to find new sounds I tried to record my drum kit with only one mic. No samples added except for the crash cymbal since my cymbal is total crap. I think it turned out pretty good after some creative mixing.

The mic is a Neumann TLM102 into GAP Pre73 dlx into Apogee Quartet and Logic X. I placed the mic just above the kick drum, between the toms, pointing at the snare. I think it's called the "Tchad Blake Method".

I put some music in there too, I think the important thing is to make the drums sound good in a context.
