Default Re: Do KickPorts work?

I love using a KickPort - but most engineers don't mic them correctly. The sound wave is affected by using it so you want to mic what COMES OUT OF IT, NOT what's inside of it.

Micing a few inches back, maybe off axis slightly, is amazing. I feel it behind the kick and it is great on the stage. No affect on the tone of the drum and I can tune without adding extra stuffing in my kick. On my micro- Hip-Gig, I use a SuperKick2 with a KickPort2 and an EMPTY kick drum.
