hey all,

my buddy psychedelio left his congos/bongos over at my apt this week, and im taking advantage of them and getting some recording done on the computer. But im having one problem: where do I mic the drums??? Ive tried at the bottom, top, and in between them all
(BTW, I only have two SM57s that im using to record them right now because the other mics are in use :-? ) what do yall recommend? appreciate any advice on the subject...
