MMMmm.... all american signal chain, Ku3a going to a 601. 77 going to a 350, the most killer room sound I've ever heard.

I'd love to hear it! I've never done mid/side on drums.

I've mostly been using just a ribbon mono oh, but now i'm really curious about trying MS, it would have to be a ribbon and a condensor in my case though as i only have figure 8 riboons.

I usually always grab a ribbon if im doing an MS on OH's, then you get the sparkle of the M from your condenser and the tamed cream of the S with your ribbon. Ribbon mics on drums, yummy.

Well there's rockin' it old school...

And then there's pullin' it all the way back to Dr. Blumlein. If you're going to go M/S that's definitely a way to do it.

Now I'm just curious what you were recording.
