    Hi Patrick,

    I don't know how many other drum channels you have so it's difficult to tell what to do.
    I would try to use that mic and the overheads to get a base sound and then mix in kick, snare etc to make them stick out.
    In that case I would not compress those tracks because you may get even more of the sounds you don't want.

    If you only have that track and maybe another overhead I would copy the tracks more then once and then EQ them to extremes so that only the snare sound or the kick sound or the highs of the cymbals are left and mix the new tracks in to get more kick or snare.

    Then of course you could use the extrem eq'ed tracks to create drum sample tracks.
