Does anybody else out there own a Yamaha Subkick? I bought mine years ago when it was first introduced, and have used it just a handful of times. It is only appropriate when you amplify your bass drum through really big P.A. systems, but soundmen have loved it whenever I’ve used it. It’s essentially a speaker that has been reverse-wired to pick up sound rather than project it, so its diaphragm is huge when compared to most bass drum microphones, which enables it to capture really low frequencies. It’s a luxury, for sure, but a great bass drum microphone.
