I use the senheiser clip on mics, they're a great bargain. As for overheads, is this for live or for recording, if for live, I say don't even use them. With proper micing technique you can get the same sound from just the tom, snare and hat mics. As for recording, you can really use almost anything. I've used condensors, SM58s, really depends on the kind of sound you want.
