    Of course I'm going to do more research, but what type of mic would be best for recording or actually sampling a live snare. I 'm going to rent or buy a snare drum and experiment with different effects and different types of sticks. I want to sample those into my MP. Like what brands and types would yall suggest. Thanks.

    Well for me, I record sounds from a cheap radio shack mic. It sound's fine cuz I like to mess around with the sound sample and add some fx to it. But if you want real good sound, maybe a condensor mic would do the trick.

    Snare Top: Shure SM57.

    Snare Bottom: AKG D310 or a good condenser mic.

    SM57 for close up, but I'd be interested in hearing a condensor in the room especially if it's a nice sounding room. You don't get to hear a snare & condensor just because you're always close micing a full kit or hearing it alongside other parts of the kit.

    sm57 or 58 is probably the best mic you can buy for the price 89 bucks, you can also use an sm 57 or 58 for practically anything and it will sound pretty good
