Yeah. Muffled bass is pretty much the reality in recording mainstream,non jazz since.... ?Everyone who says they have no muffling in their bass drum, please post links to your released recordings which demonstrate your sound.
I've been at events where heavy metal drummers were using unported resos. If there is a hell I'm sure that 40hz rumble is playing there intermixed with (your favorite dead jazz guy here) playing a "Japanese firewood" set with a piece of wet cardboard for a bass batter and no reso.
I'm not a drummer. I'll try anything. That is my alibi. Currently, I have a Super Kick II with a beater patch on a 22" tuned to about 65hz. Front head? Completely cut out and only there to hold the hoop in place. Various laundry inside plus my hill billy version of Bruce Swedien's contraption that he used on Michael Jackson's Billy Jean. Picture is the original. (Somebody is making them, but I'm not paying $410 plus shipping for a glorified packing blanket.) If Bruce Swedien did it why not give it a try?Interesting results. Not for everything.
