Hello. I have a Beta 52A and I was trying it out for the first time with my Zoom H4N. I have a Pearl Vision 22in bass drum with stock heads, and tried it out. It didn't sound that good in my opinion (sounds.. fuzzy..), so I tried cutting a porthole and adding a pillow against the batter. To my surprise, it sounded worse (or maybe because it was a mono recording?). Is this a drum head problem? Is there no problem at all? Here are some sound samples:
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
