What is the recommended way to record drums?
There are many methods to record drums. You can start with a spaced A/B pair above your drum set. Try to find a good balance between your kick and snare; they should be in the center image of the kit. There are methods to record a drum kit with three mics also. You can place one Little Blondie over the top of the snare, about 2-3 feet above the snare center and another Little Blondie on the floor tom, equal distance from the first Little Blondie. Parallel compress these mics, and blend the signal with the third mic on the kick.
What is the recommended way to record horns?
Set the microphone in front of your instrument and stand about a foot back.

Set up a pop filter between the vocalist and the microphone. Stand about 6-8 inches back and sing in the direction of the microphone. Speaking vocals may need to stand closer as needed.
What is the recommended way to record an orchestra or choir?
This is another question with many answers. The best way is to use a Decca Tree method. If you are only working with two microphones, the best way is to set up the microphones 5-6 feet behind the conductor and point the microphones toward the last stands of violas and 2nd violins. For a choir, start by placing the microphones about 10 feet away from the vocalists, high in the air and point them down toward the middle row.
