Thanks very much! I thought about this before hand and do use a coated front head, with a small port hole which gets rid of most reflections. There's also a small travel pillow on the inside to keep everything under control which works really well. I did a quick recording of it yesterday http://soundcloud.com/ed-copestake/i...icrophone-test
. It sounds better than I expected, nice "click" with a nice low "boof" as well. I'll get a recording of the whole kit soon and put it up :)
