All solid advice hear and thanks again William for sharing all your experiences so generously here.

I do want to emphasis the usefulness of the IBP here. I use it exactly for that purpose: to get the best match between inner and outer kick mic. You could try this: try finding the best spot for the outside kick mic in relation to the overheads and then position the inner kick mic where it sounds best. Now use the IBP to "phase allign" the inner with the outside kick mic which then also sounds good with the overheads!

Regarding phase and drummicing: it's virtually impossible to record a kit without phase problems, so the ear should always be the judge. However, something like the IBP makes phase stuff a lot easier. I also use it on bass guitar when I'm recording DI and mic together thumbsup .

Good luck,
