I have met a few guys who use an internal 57 on the snare and it always sounds bad.
The trick with using one in your snare is to treat the internal mic as a bottom mic and mic the top on the outside. With the internal mic facing the snare wires, you do not have any phase problems in conjunction with the top mic...
My sweet spot for my tom mics was mounted on the bottom lugs facing the logo....
