Re: To Port or not to Port...
I am well aware that one can mic a bass drum that does not have a ported front head. We do that I our church, and it sounds great. However, when going to different acoustic environments, I prefer to mic a bass drum with a ported head. To each his/her own. Peace and goodwill.
