::) 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.

First find kick drums that sound good...

The MikTek mics are rather large, yes. The clamps are the hardest thing to deal with. Despite their mass, I have had no problem getting them to integrate with a drum system and get a good sound. The overall sound is great. I wouldn't say it's the best I have ever heard, but most certainly far from the worst and certainly easier to get to where I want. The stuff I really want isn't cheap and isn't practical for most of my clientele. The MikTek stuff is about as expensive as I can reasonably justify and honestly gives me an option that is better in overall quality than what most all in my area is offering. I am basically offering big house choices from a small house provider. I think I will eventually get a Beta52, but only because I do actually like it and it is pretty much a standard option now. I think I will also get an Audix D6 too for much of the same reason. Between the Beta 91, Beta 52, D6 and PM11 options, I would be covering just about every engineers " I will accept that " list. I am not a fan of utilizing two kick drum mics and prefer a single mic solution and each of these options seem to make a single mic approach work, having them all is sure to make any engineer be comfartable.
I don't understand how you can't hear yourself

Wonder why beyerdynamic tgd71 (c) is never mentioned here:
Sounds great as 'stand alone' kick mic, not as 'typical boundary' as its competitors.
