Fiberskyns on both sides. I don't have a port on this drum and because of the size I'd rather not put one on.
My mic is a cad 412 and I've been using it outside the resonance head in various positions. I've been getting quite a bit of ring and overtones like this through the pa speakers. My tuning is generally loose on the batter, and tight on the reso. Muffled with very light blanket touching both heads and small light ring muffle around the batter head.
So I've been thinking of mounting this mic inside the drum. If anyone has done this, how were the results? I think this would be a lot easier when playing out as far as set up. But im wondering if this might help with getting a better "thump" without ring with this size drum. Any input appreciated!
