I just went through this very thing. Literally 6-7 months ago. Here’s my story.
My primary gigging kick drum is a 22” dia x 15” deep custom GMS SE. My band plays 70s through 90’s country and Americana covers with a mix of original material in the same vein. I currently run a coated Powerstroke 3 batter head and a ported custom head on the resonant head. My bass drum beater is a Pearl Quad beater, with one of the felt sides as the striking surface. (I forget which one specifically.)
I put a composite Kelly Shu in the drum and I first tried out the AKG D112. (The only bass drum mic I had at that point.) I first pointed the mic directly at the beater impact point, but I wasn’t getting as much boom as I was hoping for. The sound was disproportionally all attack, no beef. I also realized that my personal tastes have changes since I first purchased that AKG bass drum mic many years ago. Literally that same night I received a brand new EV ND68 kick drum mic as payment from a previous debt I was owed.
I was looking forward to trying that EV bass drum mic out, and when I installed it and started testing it out, I absolutely fell in love with what I was getting. THAT was the sound I was hearing in my head for this band. My band mates were absolutely astounded at what that set up gave to the overall band sound. When I looked at everything after testing, I realized that I inadvertently pointed the mic halfway between beater impact point and the edge of the shell. I’ve left it there ever since. We always do our own sound, so I have no feedback from other sound guys, but I’ve had dozens of compliments from other drummers and patrons of wherever we are playing on the sound of my bass drum.
It’s not really like a modern, metal music bass drum sound. It gives a very full bass drum sound with more of a balance of boom and attack.
If you like the AKG mic, awesome. The point of my story is that maybe don’t point whatever bass drum mic you like directly at the beater impact point, unless you are going for pure attack with very little else. Lots of variables involved here, so maybe different mics work differently depending on where it's pointed, EEQ settings, etc. Also, there are no hard and fast rules here. What works for some may not work for others. Prepare to spend a lot of time futzing with it and being down on your hands and knees adjusting things!
