1 NEED HELP WITH KICK DRUM MICS
Hi,
I've heard that mics for the bass drum wear out easily, so I'm hesitating to buy a descent one for a high price (I'm low on cash). Instead I'm wondering if ANY sort of budget (around $60 or under?) mic would do the job, and if so what mics do you recommend?


Cheers,
Stan

On that budget I would go on up to a Shure SM57. Not meant for the kick, but it can be used, and is also the most versatal mic you can get. Great for most any instrumentation, and should be able to be gotten for around $80. Well worth the step up in price.

some good mics are the audix d6 which i have right now and i love it gets to job done and woth it for 200 but at a low coast a CAD bass drum mic but like i said its more worth it to save up to earth 150 and get a good one becuase cheep one will break fast anyway
