I've never used mics with PAD settings before (I'm a weekend warrior guitarist... that does the band's sound as well!). I'm going to be using a pair of Rode M3 mics as drum overheads - and I've not got any time to test them out and play around with them. I see they have a 0db, -10db and -20db setting switch inside. Any advice on how I should set the switch for drum overheads for a loud-ish rock drummer? Appreciate any advice you guys can give me.
Also, I'm assuming I should set the filter switch to flat ( not 80 Hz cut)??
