    Hey guys, I'm wondering if I could ask for some advice. I've got a SM58 and a LDC AT2020. I'm looking to buy some mics to record drums, so I want a pair of overheads, a snare and a kick mic. I'm starting out and also I live in Brazil (very high taxes), so I'm looking for entry level price here. Can you give me your opinion on these points:

    1. LDC or SDC for overhead pair ?
    2. Is it worth buying some kit ?
    3. Maybe I could start out just with the overheads and kick mics and use the SM58 for snare ?
    4. What mics would you buy in my situation ? Also considering them being useful for other purposes.
