Re: Why wont my drum overheads stop clipping?
I got the NT-5's too. Unfortunately there is no PAD on them that I'm aware of. I use them for OHs as well and must watch the clipping very closely.
For louder drums I usually go about 8-10 feet above the kit. For softer drums I go anywhere between 4 and 8 feet.
