In this 4 part video series of Drum Miking Tips & Tricks, we break down some techniques you can use for recording drums at home, in the studio and on stage.
The series breaks it down to the 4 major components of the drum kit being the kick drum, snare, rack and floor toms and overheads which covers the cymbals and hi-hats. Here’s Part 3:
