    Dude, don't mic with a kick drum mic. All you'll get are lows and highs. Great if you're a scooper, but otherwise it's horrible for bass. You're better off using a 57 or 58 if you have no other mics. Use a mic that has fairly flat response.

    Like Jimmy sais , both have an EQ applied.

    The beta52 is more standard , more used everywhere.
    I don't say it sounds better , just used more.
    I hate both personaly , try a ATM25 or a PL20/RE20 instead for a kick.
  5. The Beta52 has, as already described, an EQ curve built in that makes it sound horrible on bass. The 902 is slightly flatter, but still not great.

    What you ideally want is a mic with a flat frequency response, such as the sennheiser MD421 or an EV RE20.
