This is a selection of microphones for recording a standard drum kit with a low number of channels (6):
|Room||SE Electronics VR1 Voodoo||400€|
|Cables||Sommer Cable Galileo 239 10m||(6 * 40€) 240€|
The combination of RE-20, SM57, MD421 is “classic”.
The Seelectronis VR1 Voodoo is a ribbon mic and excellent for guitar amps and rooms.
The Haun 660 are good overheads, for quite a low price, when compared to Oktava or Neumann OHs. You could mix OHs down to one channel.
When recording a larger kit (e.g. a kit with 3 Toms), you would add extra mics on individual drums.
