A bunch of local (Baltimore) producers and engineers get together monthly and hang and talk about records (and drink beer). We decided to do a shootout. It's not perfect and I am sure we are missing mics, but I thought to share here. Hope everyone is well.... http://mobtownstudios.com/kick-drum-mic-...

Pin 2 is tied to ground right at the socket. I would cut this loose and wire a pot in there. Should be pretty easy.
