PRODUCER TIP: How To Mic Up A Drum Kit


Here at Kane Audio, we’re always keen to give out little tips and tricks here when we can, and while I was just browsing the net the other day, I stumbled across this little <5min video on how to mic up a drum kit.

Obviously there are tonnes of different ways you can mic up a kit, especially depending on the size of the room you’re in, but we’d also recommend you experiment as much as you can too. ¬†However, when it comes to the shear basics of getting a decent sound, this little tutorial hits the spot perfectly.

VIDEO: Two Collarts teachers, Brett and JT, show you some microphone techniques for recording drums. They demonstrate which microphones work best on various parts of the drum kit and provide an overview of dynamic microphones and condensor microphones.

Collarts are a tertiary education provider based in Melbourne. The college offers courses in Audio Production, Creative Industries Management, and Music Performance. You can find out more about the college on their website:
