    I'm a total believer in home recording, and recording drums with one or two mics is the best for a good ol rock n roll sound. Ivy would approve. I hate close mics, it took me many years to discover that

    Thanx Rich!
    I just recorded the vocal dry and added a reverb in Reaper. I think I used “live vocal” and there’s a slapback delay as well.

    Yeah, I don’t wanna work that hard on recording drums so I stand my vocal mic in front over the bass drum pointed straight ahead and it seems to work fine.
    I just duplicate the tracks (thanx @Waxhead for that tip) and they sound good enough for my purposes.

    yeah 1 mic on the bass drum is enuf.
    Gets more complicated when you got a big drum kit though :D

    Yeah I have mine pointed basically at me above the bass drum and it seems to pick everything up.

    Sounds pretty good, tbh. You might want to add a touch of dirt and compression too to get that vintage vibe. There's quite a few ways to do it, either with outboard gear, or plugins-- I've always been a fan of running the vocals through an amp simulator like one of the Shattered Glass free ones or reamping them.

    Also vocal doubler plugins can do some wild stuff if you break them and use them in ways they weren't designed for. I managed to get one to sound like an underwater phone call from hell once, and it was awesome. :D

    Best way to pick up a drum kit.
    I usually use 2 mics, the other one as overhead above (how high depends on how much you want the cymbals to be present) the drummer’s head. This is a typical old time jazz recording technique
    In the old days they know how to do it...;)
