2 Microphone Drum Recording

Need to record a drum kit but only have two microphones? Here are two options. Option 1: Place one microphone at the bass drum and the other in an overhead position above the centre of the kit. Option 2: Place each microphone on a stand slightly in front of the kit, to the left and right and slightly higher than the drummer's head. You may have to experiment with both options to get the best sound. If possible the microphones for both options should be condenser mics.
