4 bass drum mics of all tastes, which one do you prefer?

Sm7b inside with no reso head, Kel hm7u outside the kick.

Little Blondies in recorderman with no reso head...surprisingly awesome, natural drum sound with tons of low end. Picked up the kick quite nicely.

One mic, 602 right at the hole aiming at the beater. Gets enough boom and tick.

I guess I'm the only one that loves the Beta 52. To me, no other mic gives the same "punch in the face" for live shows. If it's a studio situation then it depends what i'm going for. I would most likely still set up a Beta 52 and get slap from another mic. I prefer the Yamaha Sub-kick to all those choices though.

I like the 421 and the D112.

A D12 would be a nice addition to the mics in the pic. Hard to find one in good shape, though.
