Default Re: Do KickPorts work?

I do question the physical characteristics of sound relative to live playing, though. Even studio recording. When the rest of the instruments are going the effect of the port is pretty much lost to my ears. The idea of using a KickPort with blankets, etc inside the drum seems antithetical to the principle of the thing.

Its no secret KICKPORT is tuning the lower 30hz area of the bass drum, blankets or not.

KICKPORT is a tuned port, it emphasizes (as in makes louder) frequencies that are already there, doesn't create any new frequencies.
