Default Re: A Cheap "Click" Patch Alternative :)

My favorite secret is taking a square of Mylar, taping it to the kick batter where the beater strikes so that there's a little 'pucker' or space, maybe - inch. The result of the two heads slapping when the beater hits is a really nice presence, but not as aggressive or knocky as a coin or wooden patch. Even a mic on the inside hears it, and it helps cut through the mix while sounding fairly natural. It's great!
