i use a mix of both condenser and dynamic mics and when you listen to what you have recorded you will be amazed with the quality you get.
i have only dampened my kick drum, but my snare and toms sound amazing anyway, due to the skin and sound rings (i use the css black spot sound control skins made by remo by the way but i sometimes use remo batter heads too.), but with both heads they sound amazing when you record.
i have recently formed a band and even my band members are amazed with the sound quality.
i have also recently had to by two more condenser mics and one dynamic one for singers and back up singers and to record guitar and bass when needed. so if you know the band gawtazia, that's my band. there shall be a lot of songs coming out soon.(hopefully)
