I'd say keep it even lower than -6db considering a vinyl pop or click could easily overload the ADC
I'd say keep the peaks at -18db

Thanks VJ - that's a really useful article.
The gist seems to be hover around -18dBFS, peaking your drums around -10dBFS. Takes the stress out of recording if you're not worrying about overloads!
