Hello Scott, it's a pleasure to have you here. I really love the Coles 4038 for overheads and I see you use them often for Overheads too.

Can you please explain how you position them on the drums to get a nice stereo image and to have the snare and bass drum centered?

Also if you can share any additional tips on these Mics and maybe on bass drum miking technique. I see you recorded sometimes in pretty small rooms. Do you also use room mics? Thanks!!

Hiya, Ken or Mr Scott here.

The best way for you to find out about my mike placement would be to go to:
Ken Scot - Drum recording special video series with top recording engineer

You should find everything you need there.

As far as distant mics go, I use them when needed and when it's possible to record them. Obviously a small drum booth doesn't work well for distance and if there are other musicians playing live at the same time you can't use them either.
