    Drum Recording Questions

    Bear with me I'm new to drum recording and setting up my music cabin soon. This is a beginner question. If I have 4 - 7 mics on drums and also record guitar, bass and vocals, this sound like a nightmare of cables leading to the audio interface. I'm curious how others setup their recording...

    Tuning frequencies

    Does anyone have recommended fundamental frequencies for a 5 tom setup using something like the iTuneDrums app or Tunebot 22" kick and 10, 12, 14, 16 rack toms and 18" floor tom. Just looking for starting point. Here's what iTuneDrums recommended but some of the intervals seem close.

    Repairing lacquered shells

    These are closeups of minor surface scratches in the clear coat. Would wiping with lacquer thinner be the best approach to improve? Do you carefully only wipe the scratch with a Q-tip or a larger area to blend?

    Late 90s DW Collector's opinion

    I stumbled on this complete 7 piece set with double pedal, cymbals and stands. It's a 1 owner 99 model I think with a few minor scratches. Any recommendations on value? I was a little worried about resale with the gold hardware. DW Drums - Collector's Series Maple Mahogany 7-piece Kit - 22"...
