This is a great article.  I've actually got this in a bookmark folder
of things that I re-read before I start a session, since I don't get
a chance to do a lot of drum recording (though that's changing since
I have new studio space).  I was lucky enough to have 7 channels for 
drums on my last project and having some good mics and applying a 
little smarts in placement gave me tracks that were much better than
I'd expected.

The thing I did not like at all was the sound of the cymbals.  They 
have a weird flanging thing happening that was distracting in headphones.
