Ribbon Rumble

A mate of mine bought the shinybox 46 ( lundahl) and we tried it for 1st time last nite after some amature a/b shootouts with other mics ...

we placed it over a drum-kit .. as you would a LDC with the smaller omni ( figure 8 ) facing the ceiling . Standard ceilng hight ...
this thing brought out a low end rumble from the bass drum, that had such an effect - no colon therapy could match...

is this due to a gravity thang ?? cos once we placed the mic infront of the kit ( a few feet away) ... in an upright position ... it sounded fine ...

was it gravity or the rear of the mic picking up the standing waves ??
