I like shure beta 91a and akg d112.  Beyer m88s are great but cannot take the beating the other mics can.

::) 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.

Beyer M380. The rest of your mics are toys.

Note the lack of a smiley.

You're such a buzz kill.

If the band sounds great, it's because the band IS great, if the band sound like crap, it's the soundman's fault.

I've got at my disposal, a D112,  D6, SM 91, RE20, RE320. I can't decide whether one is better than the other. For me the kick itself is what makes the mic sound good.

I am in the same boat. I own Shure Beta52, Sennheiser E902, Audix D6, AKG D112, Beyer M88 (vintage) Shure Beta91, Audio Technica ATM250 and Audio Technica ATM250DE.

They all have their uses and it really depends on the player, the kit and the genre.

For rock on the larger tours I am currently liking the Shure Beta91 paired with the Sennheiser E902. For some folk acts I am using the Shure Beta52.
You get the idea.

Wow...different strokes I guess. I would rather have a 57 than a D112!
