Probably the most important track when it comes to drum recording are the overheads, or simply capturing the sounds of the cymbals as well as the stereo image of the whole kit. But the overheads have more to offer than this, they are also responsible mainly for the “natural” reproduction of the recording and is crucial to the overall sensation of power. Depending on how far you position the microphone, the closer it is the more attack you will capture although it may sound “tiny”, or you can provide more “air” or space between and create a much more powerful sound.
