kick mic on the batter side???
that seems weird. you should cut a hole in your reso and put the mic in it. probably will achieve a much better sound.
PS post some sound clips, i wanna hear your kit and your playing.

I put the kick mic on the batter head because u get a better sound of the "click" of the beater, but since my mics arent the best, and my bass drum sucks, you get a little click, and i wouldnt cut a whole myself, me and scissors are bad, and think again before asking to here my playing, your ears will bleed, youll hear a better drummer if you ask a mentally challenged kick to jump around in a dumpster with a pair of sticks,

click eh. i've always liked a boom or a deep tone rather then a higher clicking sound. do you recognize its a bass drum with a clicking sound? post some sound files maybe that sounds interesting.

yep, I got out some sandpaper and at least rounded over the edge on the snare- huge difference. eventually I'll cut them right, but its not worth the effort right now

well im in and i record heavy metal bands. The typical bass drum setting while eq ing is 2-4KHz, which gives the clicking sound, i think that in metal if you have the normal bass drum sounding it gets to overwhelming with the double bass, so you usually have the click.

It looks like you play in a funk band, now im not really sure how the bass drum is supposed to be eq'ed because my musical library is only extended to rock and metal

hmm. gotcha. i do enjoy metal, check out between the buried and me. they have a somewhat deep bass drum sound. i know bands like all that remains use a more clicking sound, but i didn't think that was from the beaters. thats all. thought it was just tuning and dampening in the kick.

Yo, there are a lot of people being jerks about your setup right now, but I'm going to take what they are saying and turn it into positive criticism instead of negative ridicule. THe tom angles are an issue, not because they are angled, and not neccesarily because of the extremity of the angle, but because of how low they are. If you made your tom's higher, you could have them angled at that extreme angle and have them ergonomically and acoustically make sense. You may want to tone the angles back a teeny bit, but if you want them like that, I suggest they be a little higher. The tape really does have to go though, unless you have issues with neighbors. It would be in your best intrest to let someone play your set and then you go cross the room, so you can hear what the tom sounds like, not just the head. And the splash should be a little flatter. Setup issues aside, it's still a pretty sweet kit.

i changed the tom angles, in the new pic, im moved the toms down and made less of an angle which is fine for me, it really isnt that bad now, i just need to clean them, just look at all the dust on them.

If you're going to angle the toms, they are best positioned at a 45 degree angle so the impact of a drumstick doesn't create "craters" in the head.

I play on both angled and flat toms. I prefer flat toms for 1 up-2 down setups, but when I have more than one mounted tom, I prefer angled toms.
There is no specific way he should have his toms angled, its his personal feel. Iv seen drummers that have their snare drums angled similar. Not my piece of cake but yeah

Unless he wants to severely damage his wrists, then the toms should be angled less than that.

yeah, i asked my drum teacher yesterday about all that stuff, tom angles, etc, and he pretty much said that drumming is all about being comfortable, besides playing the right notes, but he said just be comfortable, not that my changing my tom angles wont help with medical reasons (wrist problems or whatever)
