Miking the snare drum: Technique two

Here is an unusual but effective technique for miking the snare that can bring some great results with the right drum and drummer. This method usually works best with a heavy hitter, and can give you some additional isolation from the other drums as well. Position the mic 4 to 8 inches away from the snare, and aim it at the shell, not the top. Move it closer to the bottom head for more snare sound, or closer to the top head for more attack and less buzz. (music playing) Make sure that it isn't aimed at the port of the snare drum, or you'll hear an air blast every time the drum is hit.

So that's another method for miking the snare drum. Point the mic at the side of the snare, away from the air hole. Remember that this technique usually works best with a heavy hitter. (music playing)
