hi @nicola, I record drum set a lot too, and I've used many methods. Sometimes the full setup and sometimes just a few mics strategically placed. My philosophy is to set up a pair of overheads (usually in a modified ORTF setup) and make them sound really good. Then, I add whatever I feel is lacking in that sound, or whatever I think might need further volume control later on, usually kick and snare at least.
To me, the hardest thing about recording drums is getting the drummers to tune their drums well and make them sound good before I even get microphones out. It's a critical first step that a lot of people seem to feel like they can skip. Your recordings sound nice though thanks for sharing. Do you use actual rack hardware for your compression and reverb or are they the built in Fx on your Yamaha?
@Joshua_P_Miller brings up a good point too, what types of microphones do you like to use? I go back and forth a lot but I've come to use lots of big condensers too -- at least if it's just overdub. If there's other instruments playing in the room, or in a live situation I tend to use more dynamic mics to keep a tighter sound.
