Also yes I agree, especially if you have editing or tweaking tools to get the desired sound. It would be best to have a mic you can work with instead of one you can barely or not at all work with.
I recently read a product review from a drummer about drums and he said it's better to have more resonance to work with than less as you can't add more but you can take away if needed. He was refering to drums with a lot of contact surface regarding edges and that is where 45 degree edges are nice to have sometimes, especially on toms.
