Re: Best mics for internal miking
I think you should try an internal mic in a double-headed tom first before you commit. Remember Terry Bozzios' first instructional video from the 80s that he made after Missing Persons broke up? He had internal mics in those drums and it just wasn't a sound I liked. They sounded like liquid toms (for lack of a better description). This is probably why it's so popular in bass drums, but nobody attempts it in the other drums.
I think those Shure SM98 condensers on the gooseneck mounts clamped to the rim sound alot better.
