Re: Ported or Non Ported Bass Reso?
If you're not gigging you won't have uneducated sound people putting pressure on you to port the head just to find out where to put the microphone, lol. If you have the response from your pedal that you like and especially the sound, just leave it unported. Once ported you really can't unport it unless you replace the head. I have a ported 20" and 22" resonant heads that never get used. Every bass drum I own is unported because I really like their sound live and recorded.
