Yeah, but it only works if your vent is in an accessible location. And often that's dead center on the top of the drum.If you use the May XLR vent adapter, you won't need any extra holes in the shell.
And it doesn't fit in MANY vent holes.
I have 6 kick drums with internal mics installed, and the May no-drill wouldn't work on ANY of them. Due to either the vent hole being too small, or the vent hole being in an inaccessible location (often at the bottom of the drum, at 6:00).
I ended up just drilling a hole in my Sonor "Player" kit (import, similar to the last-generation "Safari", but with a 20" kick drum) to make it work, and would have strongly preferred a standard flush-mount XLR panel jack, but I didn't have any, and didn't want the May to go to waste.
