Jon describes how to use two microphones on the snare drum, one on the top, or batter, head and one on the bottom, or resonant, head to enable the engineer to mix in the direct sound of the snares, which are metal wires stretched across the resonant head with varying degrees of tension. There are phase issues to address here as well as the usual gain, eq, insert and routing decisions to be made.
