I use a Sennheiser e602-II, in the soundhole (usually just the element all the way inside the port), pointed at the beater and then something on the res head. Now I have one of the Solomon LowFrEQ subkicks as well, but I have used FET based LDC mics in the past. A long time ago I used an active dynamic Blue KickBall on the res head, since it was made just for thumpy low end sources and it was cheap. In the past I've just used a Shure SM7B or EV RE20 in the sound hole, pointed towards the beater and made a sub track in mixing.
I almost always put a mic on the bottom of the snare. In one case where I couldn't for technical reasons, I actually reamped a snare once. I don't usually mic the bottom of the toms, but I have in some cases where it seemed appropriate. The only thing I don't like about using the bottom of the toms is it requires everything be tuned up meticulously (specifically for that purpose, usually) and I end up doing a ton of editing, which is a pain.
Snare bottom is one of the few sources I don't really have a problem with sound replacement on drums. Normally I like really live sounding drums, if I have a choice (I use mid sequenced samples too, no hate), but in the past I've even used gated white noise triggered off the snare mic for that.
yea that makes sense. I think it all depends overall. even if i use a sample for the snare i usually use a EQed snare beat of my snare that I had already done from earlier. so it's still a live sample of my actual kit. I usually only do that if there happened to be something that couldn't be fixed via the mix like if some reason there was static on the mic. doesn't normally happen but it has before with my snares and kicks.
I've done similar things. Hell, I've recorded drum kits with 2 or 3 mics and whipped up everything in editing. No sound replacement, just duplicating tracks and isolating sources with extreme EQ, compression, expansion, noise gates, etc. and then blending them back in. Usually with subtle room style reverb to make it all sound natural and cohesive. I did that with some live recordings of one of my old bands, where the engineer just sent me stems off the board. Thankfully I don't really have to do stuff like that much anymore, but it's kind of a fun exercise in mixing technique if you're in the right frame of mind for it.
