Pardon my ignorance with this... I'm not a drummer, nor have I have encountered this object in the years of doing sound (maybe I've lived a shelter life). What is the round "attachment" on the kick drum in the photo? The mic (and mic stand) is obvious, but to the left of the mic is something that appears to have a bar coming out of a round object.
That's exactly what it is.I have a few of these I use on older drum kits. Being a drummer I know how some guys are about duct tape and even moon gel on their drum heads.They also used to have them built into many drums on the inside.I'll bet this setup in the photo had nothing inside the kick drum to deaden the sound. Resonance city.
Hard to tell for sure because of the image quality, but it appears to be a damper to control the resonance of the front head. These used to be common. This is the first I've seen in decades.
There appears to be a cable coming down from the round thing people are calling a damper. To me it looks like a hole in the head with a mic on a clip/gooseneck mount aimed through it.
A little tweaking on the brightness/contrast makes it pretty clear that it's a small speaker used as a mic.
