    Knowing that you are one of the most reliable authorities in matter of drumming and most likely drum recording, for a school project I am rying to pull off the whole "multi instrumentalist" thing, only thing is I have only a vague idea on how to appropriately mic a drum set for a recording session...
    knowing that I have to use a 6 piece with a total of 7 cymbals (the set available at my school plus a few added pieces), could you advise me on what the best disposition for 5 mics (all that I have available from my school) on this drum set...?

    I'd try one on the snare, one on the bass drum and the other ones as overheads.

    Buy more mics! They're dead cheap in the US.
