I do sound and play bass at Church. We run a simple setup. For drums we only use a mic on the kick and one overhead. The drummers bass does not have a port so I have long wanted to mic it on the beater side. However the drummer is a big guy and the drum kit is small and I didn't have an appropriate stand to get a mic in there. Now at last I have gotten a stand that will do the trick. I put the mic on the snare side of the kick pointing up at the beater. Yes as expected I got a much more defined kick sound but what surprised me is that.... This mic placement did a good job picking up the "sound" of his whole kit very well. With my old mic technique I would only get the lows from the kick and the highs from everything else. Somehow moving the mic fills in the sound very nicely.
