Default Re: My CUSTOM Internal Bassdrum Mic Holder System [Promo Video]

It's a solution to a problem that shouldn't exist if the one (1) proper microphone is chosen to use inside of the bass drum. Burying a D6 deep inside of a bass drum will overly enhance the bottom frequencies of the drum due to proximity effect and abundance of low frequency energy designed in that and many other bass drum type microphones. This in turn overpowers the sound of the attack. If you chose the proper microphone and position it correctly, there is no need for for two microphones buried within the drum.

Here is my point, if someone decides to use both a condenser microphone and a dynamic microphone on your bracket and the signals are summed, which they would normally be, they will have phasing problems, it's as simple as that.

BTW, how do you discreetly route the two (2) microphone cables from the bass drum. Probably through the port hole which is a bad idea for both consistant microphone placement from the pulling on the cables and resonant head life, tearing of the head. A better method of using two microphones within the drum would be to eliminate the resonant head, but then we would use stands and wouldn't have the need for a double bracket, would we?

I do have other "points" if you have to be further convinced.
