You will have a great deal of flexibility for mic placement, so I wouldn't worry about that issue at all. Not everyone seems to like the sound of a drum miced from inside, but I have been satisfied and it is extremely convenient.
This is how I eventually want to rig my cable also, so it's not all rolled up inside the drum. I velcro it to one of the cables, but this idea is much cleaner and smarter. Did you just cut and solder the cable to the connector? Nice, clean look man
