Overhead/Cymbal MicrophonesOverhead microphones are responsible for the decrease of the drum cymbal. It is only to condenser microphones. These are almost always placed in pairs on a full drum set. If required, are also high etxra microphone stands (see also under "Microphone") available. The requirement for an overhead microphone is very high, since it must transmit the smallest basin and the softest sounds and the loud crash cymbals.
