So I've been put in charge of sound for our talent show. I'm pretty shure there's gonna be a few drum kits involved, and I wanted to know how to go about mic'ing the cymbols. I know what I'm gonna do for the high-hat, I already have my own mic for that, but the crash and ride are a different story. Our theater has some hanging mics that I might be able to borrow, I think they're made by Sure, but I'm not shure, won't know until tomorrow.
My question is this: If I gaff tape the hanging mics underneath the cymbols, will it cause damage to the hanging mics? Or would it be better off for me to just find some mics to use as overheads. Like I said, I can't remember what the mics are off the top of my head, I've only used them once, but I'll look at them tommorrow.
Thanks in advance
