Not a cheap modification though.
I can't see how it wold change the sound of the drum in a noticeable way.
So, The project comes in at around $250US.
Yes, if you don't already own the mic and cable. If you do, and you've been micing from the front, I'd call it a $50 mod, for the Shu mount and the jack.
I undertook this entire process because I hate a ported reso head. It just sounds and feels wrong to me, lol! So, baby steps for the past couple of years, and now it is set up just how I want it!
