I would like to know your opinion, on micing both sides of the snare vs only TOP.
For the majority of rock records i have recorded, i only end up using the top mic.
In what ocassions or genres, do you find it necessary or helpfull to add the bottom mic?

Interesting. I always have a blend of top & bottom bussed to a single track then working from there, without touching it again or processing the individual mics. A bit of bottom mic always adds a nice sizzle/crack, although yeah sometimes I do end up having it way low in the blend. It also depends on how much hihat bleed is in there and how intrusive it can get.

Some people swear by micing the side of the snare although I still haven't tried that myself...
