i hope this is a useful idea. a year ago i really wanted may internal mics. but they are ridiculously over priced. i hated to have to mic my kit night after night and fiddle with bits of wire and hape the mics knocked off during the show and have to wind the cables up afterwards. so i made my own internal micing system. here pictured is the one in my timbale. in my rack tom i fixed a sunken XLR jack in the tom holder (mounting) hole and then mounted the tom with a rim mount. i commited the cardinal sin and drilled a hole on my floor tom the size of an xlr and used a sunken xlr there. the mics are all the same though. even my bass drum is a plug in now. the sound and set up speed are brilliant.
