Kick drums can be recorded in a variety of ways. Listen to kick where the front head is mic’d up from a few feet and up close. In the examples, listen how the changes in the low-end presence and attack change how you perceive the drum in a mix. Learn how these choices can be used to select different tones for your kick drum track in recording by simply moving the mic and using your listening skills.
