It's funny, the thing up on stage that has the narrowest range gets a whole lot of attention.
When I was hauling gear and asking sage sound people I was always told ...
"If you can't get a decent kick drum sound with an SM57 or 58 then your rig/gig ratio is probably off."
If you've worn the silkscreen off your 57 then you should know no one goes home singing the kick drum.
Well, except maybe the crowd I had tonight.
Gate it, flip polarity, tune the drum, mic the beater side, use 2 mics, change the pillow, aux feed the kick channel, cut a hole in the head, use it to key the bass compressor, PZM omni hypercardiod phantom that sucker.
Just don't settle for inferior kick, there's always an excuse to buy a microphone.
