Just bought this Bass Drum Mic, Have not received it yet Tell me i made the right choice??
Thanks for your imput.It will be for live stuff and it will be inside the drum.Paid 120.00 for a demo with a new 20 ft cord...Noticed on some vids of us,and we play in smaller clubs,bars.That the kick is just not coming thru enough and had to get something.There are better mics the Beta52 for the same mone, imo, but lots of people use it with great results (Questlove, dave weckl, simon phillips i think, etc., lots of people of this forum..). Its less suited for studio work than other mics. Its a great live mic though.
I'd say its more suited for jazz and lighter situations than rock.
I would definitely port your kick with the Beta52. It has a lot of mid range fullness and round punchiness. Lacks in attack when compared to say D112 or other comparable mics.
Just my experience/opinion..
Hear, here. D6 is what I have used for years.The 91A is a little bit better overall than the 52A.. I have the 52A but I tend to like full, round sound with some boominess which that mic provides.
The Audix D6 is also a very very good mic, 3/5 studios I've recorded in where they use their mic's have used the D6.
