The Recording Drums Series
Snare - Attack (the crack factor) 3000K Prescence 1500K
Snare usually doesn't need much EQ if it is tuned properly (refer to section III in "The Recording Drums Series". The sheer nature of the drum usually makes it dominant in the recording. Usually a 1-3 dB boost at 3000K does the trick.
Toms - Try 7000K
Once again, I usally don't need anything here. The tuning and playing take care of how it sits in the mix. If you are having issues, try 7000K
Cymbals/Overheads - 10000K
Adjusting EQ at 10000k controls the sizzle factor of the cymbals. If you're having problems getting the high hats to cut through or if they're too loud, make your adjustments at 10000K.
