Well for the bass you are going to probably go direct out of the bass head into the sound board, so that eliminates the need for a mic. one mic for each guitar rig pointed directly at the speaker usually a half inch away from the grill. one vocal mic. a single mic for the piano, but i would experiment heavily with placement and EQ. a mic each for the kick and snare a mike shared between two rack toms, and a mic on the floor tom,and just hope that the mics on the kit catch enough indirect sound from the cymbals and hi-hat to make it sound good. Is this live or studio?
