    Hey I don't know if this was brought up in the "overhead phase" post but I have heard of people switching the kickdrum's phase since its being miced (in most cases) from inside the sound hole or on the resonant head. Its just something that I don't hear it enough to think that it is worth it or right. I have tried it my self and i didn't really hear a difference.

    Which probably means that your kick mic was 90 or 270 degrees [or thereabout] out of phase with the overheads... in other words it was 6 of one, half a dozen of the other as to your preferance.

    The question is 'how does it work in one speaker mono'? If you get the same picture of the kit in one speaker mono that you get in two speaker stereo then you're onto something... if the bottom gets weird on you, if it gets really midrangy, maybe a bit washy, then you have some phase issues that need to be addressed.
