+1 on the Kelly Shu. I play with a couple drummers that use them. They are solid kit for sure.

Do you guys leave the mic in the drum and how does it transport? My concern is that this seems like a decent idea for a situation where the drum isn't transported. My application is for a bar band and this drum will be put in a case, transported in a station wagon and put in a garage over and over and over.
I use the May mic mount in the kick.  It remains tight without losing adjustment.   In the season, it goes to 2 different clubs every weekend.   About 30 shows, give or take.  Have a D112 in there right now, but generally run a B52.

Mike - slightly OT but if you're looking to clean up the stage and get rid of stands beyond just the drums, I highly recommend the Sennheiser e906 for guitar amps. Loop the cable through the amp handle and dangle. Haven't had an issue with the mic twisting or moving around. I would pay extra for the 906 vs. the 609. Less mic stands, less to carry.

I may look into the shu system for our drummer - easier set up and only use my D6 on his kit... Thanks for the thread!

If you have twisting problems, you can leave the clip on the mic as a rotation stop.

You can also use a LP-Claw attaching it to the shell but if you have some hardware then mount an arm onto the cymbal or tom stand.

I usually clamp the LP Claw onto the drum spur closest to the hole, if I'm placing it at/outside the hole. That way you aren't messing up the finish on the kit.

I also just toss a 52 or whatever I have inside on the pillow and it sounds great in there. Sometimes the simplest answer is the best.

I can't take credit for that one; I saw it somewhere.

I posted it on Senn's FB ad for the 609 earlier this week.

I don't really remember where I got it from originally, but since I keep the clips on the mics anyways, I may have just worked it out.

Actually, I saw it a couple of years ago in action.

Looking at retiring. Local PA market has shrank to 2 guys with guitars and bose l1 compacts or expecting full line array and 16 movers on stage for $300... no middle left going back to event DJ stuff, half the work for twice the pay.
