Can you let me know the brand and wall of cardboard box you used (it sounds like top end triple wall recycled to these ears), and did you use any dampening to facilitate the use of internal mics in the rubber ball?:unsure: ;) Great job mate...sounds awesome.(y)😂

(1)Is one of my Road-bike cardboard box that i found in my store.I just cut it a use one side of it to play it as "Drum"(2)No dampening on the Cardboard.I just find a "Right-spot" just to get a nice Bass-drum sound.(3)I use Children Toy Soft rubber ball and attached it to a old drum stick(The normal drum Mallet abit hard on the cardboard...doesn't sound good the Bass drum).I just use one normal dynamic mic to capture the drum sound! Thanks alot for your kind words.
