    Check out the kick drums.

    Do you think they have the other ends propped up with a chair?
    Would this just cut down on bleed or does this actually affect the tone?

    Not only have I seen it, I have done it many times when bleed is a big issue.

    Generally if the mic is way inside the kick I wont do that, but if the mic is outside the kick due to being double headed or just for tone, I'll make a tunnel out of a packing blanket to dry out the kick sound (less room ) and to give it a little more iso from the rest of the kit.
