Alright....this saturday will be the first time recording a kick without a hole in the front head. It's a custom DW kit with beautiful new heads with a fantastic drummer hitting them. The sound they are going for is along the lines of the Mars Volta but heavier. He doesn't want to cut a hole in the front head, and he doesn't want to remove the head either. So...I'm obviously going to be mic'ing the beater side and the front of the kick. I'm not sure what mics I want to start with as we won't have much time to experiment. Here is a short list...can someone give me a few ideas on mic choices and technique? SM7b D112 Beta52 Beta91 SM57 KSM44 E609 Any thoughts? He also has triggers, but only wants to trigger as a last resort or to layer behind he kit when we are mixing. Anyone get a solid "rock" kick sound from this approach?
