Neumann M149 / Bassdrum question

Is it bad for a Neumann M149 to be put in front of a Bassdrum? There is no Pad on it and I'm afraid I will damage the Mic by doing this...

I do not know about damaging it, but i have an m149, and i think that if you want your bassdrum to be big and yet mellow, it would be perfect.

Not only can you use the mic on a bass drum but chances are very good you can go directly out of the mic to the input of your tape machine or converter without a mic-pre!! Not kidding, I've actually done that.
