I use the Beyer TG-D71 boundary mic on kick drums and I like it.  It's slightly more compact than a Beta 91.  It sounds good and eliminates a mic stand and therefore the opportunity for a performer to knock the bass drum mic out of position.  I use an Audix D6 when I can't use the Beyer.

Behringer B19a. Did an outdoor show last night. Late 60s Slingerland 22 kick. Friend asked me if the kick was a sample.

Yeah that mic is surprisingly good and so convenient for most situations. It has become my new favorite.

Same here.  Wouldn't even have given it a thought, but a band came in with one already mounted in the kick.  Reluctantly agreed to give it a go, and was surprised that it was instantly OK.  While I love my e901, I've always hated that it's *just* too girthy for some kick ports.  Couldn't face spending on a Beta 91a to replace it, but the price for the B19A was almost throw-away, and it's slightly slimmer still than even the Beta 91A.  One of the rare Behringer hits.

::) Figured I'd get this one out of the way. I'll answer that it is situational, what sound I am looking for determines which mic I select. Therefor there are many, "BEST" kick drum mics.

John, Debbie, and Alec --
THANK YOU.  I've come to trust your opinions, so based on them I ordered the Behringer B19A last week, as my very first dedicated kick drum mic.  Used it on the day it arrived, and my partner and I loved it.  Two more shows since then, and it was trouble free.  Can't beat the price, either!

That mic is very inexpensive. I was going to order a Shure SM91 that someone either walked away with or was left in a kick drum but I'm going to give this one a shot.

I love Audix D6.
