Drum recording for The Wax

So my indie pop/rock band, The Wax, has started recording a 6 song EP. We ripped through the drums in a weekend. Here's what we used for gear:
  • Overheads: Samson C02 pencil condensors
  • Kick mic: Shure Beta 52A
  • Snare: Shure SM57
  • Audio interface: ART Tubefire 8
We didn't have the best room so I tried out the Recorderman technique for the overheads. Overall I'm pretty happy with the results. Here's a clip of an early mix of one of the tracks.
