Re: Where does it feel right to you for a port? Does it matter?
Actually, after thinking about this a bit, I don't care about what side it's on for feel, but I do visually. I prefer the port on the right side of the reso head (from an audience perspective) as it's more 'centered' relative to the kit with a hi-hat, snare, etc to right of the drum (again, audience perspective. I would not cut one on the left side if I had the choice, and I do, so!
