Reply Stephen says: September 27, 2016 at 1:04 pm Thanks Michael! Reply Steve Douglas says: September 25, 2016 at 12:16 pm Would the same advice be applied to micing a kick live in a small club? Reply Stephen says: September 27, 2016 at 1:04 pm Yes, the same general rules would apply for getting a solid kick sound in a live setting Reply Philip Nestor says: September 25, 2016 at 3:51 pm Hi Stephan I enjoy all your videos! It would be nice to see how Robert Venable would mic a bass drum that doesn’t have a hole in the front head. What are your suggestions for mic placement for a drum like this for playing in a club or recording? I suppose it depends o the music being played. It seems that most drummers think a bass drum with hole in front is the only sound to have, what about the sound John Bonham or Mitch Mitchell got? Certainly in videos of those two great rock drummers playing live they had no holes cut into the drum and yet got a sound to fit the music they were playing. Thanks again for all the great videos.

Reply Geoff Coopwe says: September 25, 2016 at 10:16 pm This was great thanks. Would the same apply for live performances too?
