GETTING DRUM IMPACT - Part 1

BY ROBERT DENNIS

POSTED 3/13/2000

Time Difference Of Drum Microphones
A drum kit is often picked up with 8 or more microphones.  Thus the sound of any one drum is a composite of the signals from all of the microphones.  To hear the snare, you listen to the direct snare sound though the snare microphone but you also hear snare as leakage into cymbal and tom microphones. 

When two microphones at different distances blend to make a sound, there are some frequencies accented and some diminished due to partial phase cancellation.  The possible resulting frequency response is shown in archived copy.
