Every song deserves real drums! for $75

I run a simple, old-school mic setup: kick, snare, two overheads, and room/bottom snare/hihat, as needed. I love recording this way. I want to get the sounds right in the room and capture it all as one voice rather than manipulating everything individually in the box.

There are plenty of gear arsenals larger than mine, because I'll change the tuning of a drum before switching it out, and I'll change the placement of a mic before adding more.
