    Someday, I will be in a place in life where I’ll actually be mic’ing a drum kit. When that day comes I’ll have made it.

    I was in the studio today, setting up drum mics. if I had my hacksaw with me I’d have done this. Great idea and I will eventually do this. Thanks Warren, and thanks to Erik and Bob.

    Get a Granelli G5790 and you won’t even need to do this.

      Tape is cheaper than paying another $150 for another SM57 you don’t need. Even if they offered the 90 degree adapter, tape is still cheaper… just sayin…

    I have found a great setup at home ;
    I bought a second-hand large snare-drum (an old Royal , dutch brand) a while ago , mainly for sampling and such.
    The top-head popped because it was old .

    I then realized an old trick for recording horns -> use a drum-head between mic and horn .
    Since I also LOVE to re-record and re-vibrate ( with added materials ) sound via speakers ,
    I realized I had a tune-able resonance chamber , and tie-wrapped my mic to the metal rod which makes the snare unit inside .
    Recording behind a head gives a very solid sound , especially for beefing up tracks …enjoy man !
