CYMBALS + OVERHEADS
Recording overheads isn't all high frequencies: a great cymbal or overhead mic hears the sparkle and wash of the crash and ride, but it also hears the full mids and deep lows produced by the rest of the kit - crucial to a huge-sounding drum mix.
"The RN17 has become my desert island microphone. If there was one microphone I knew I could take with me that would get me out of trouble, it’s this...The clarity and the detail I get is wonderful, especially for one of the things I do a lot of, which is sampling - this is a perfect sampling microphone, because it has that reality that you need, with low noise, but it also has just a little bit of extra something."
