Less is more when it comes to recording a great-sounding drum kit. There have been a handful of methods used such as using a mic on each drum. I believe that a drum kit is an ensemble, therefore, it has a “group sound”.
Location is very important and often neglected. You can set up the kit across a corner or by the wall will be just fine. As for the mic placement, watch the drummer play for a while to observe where he places his hands and sticks while going around the kit. This will help you put the mics where he won’t hit them or have to move around them.
