Could someone give me some input on advantages and disadvantages of OH mic? I have seen a few threads on them, but pictures or links to articles would help me most I think. Thanks guys in advance.

Without OH mics drums would only have the tiny bit of cymbal that bleeds through your Tom/Snare mics.
You can record drums without a snare, kick, or tom mics and get usable takes. To record drums without OH would = not usable at all (imo).

Oct 06, 2009 04:06 pm The OH mics allow you to spread your mix more throughout the audio pan; It gives the overall sound a bit more dynamics. If anything, the OH mics give your drums presence too (not sound so flat). I would opt to be "for" them than against them!!
