Re: bass drum mic - front or back?

~17yrs ago: during a weekly CD-R duplication project (making & mailing about 250 discs) for national radio syndicated programming, I managed to accidentally run 30 copies of a punk band’s EP and mail them out to Christian radio stations all over the country.
I just want to personally thank you

Re: How important is it to mic the bottom of a snare?

I do it. It brings out the Saltine. Usually 57/i5 about 1.5-2" away, perpendicular and NOT directly under the snares.

I'm starting to take this kind of stuff personal and all, being old and shit. Still I could die a hundred times and it wouldn't touch this.
