    Can you hear it better in person? I've had alot of experience with cheap microphones and cameras. Some pick up on things that others wouldn't. Like, for example, some will pick up my kick, but not toms, or the other way around.

    the only way to do this is either A)Play louder B) put the camera closer to you bass drum, or C) invest in some mics

    - Play it harder

    - If you have a switchable beater on ur kick pedal try using the plastic side, as opposed to the felt side.

    - Use a smaller towel to muffle the drum, and have less towel (if any) touching the batter head.

    The towel might be muffling it too much. Try taking it out

    Your camera just wont pick up frequencies that low. Playing everything else quieter will do nothing. Just get some mics that are actually built for pick up a huge range of sound.
    Does anyone read this?

    We have 3 $10 mics at our jam space and one of our guitar players just got a new half stack so I plugged on of the crappy mics into his old combo, threw it in the kick and played with the settings and volume for a couple seconds and it sounds pretty **** good!

    it does plenty. It teaches you as a player to balance your kit out without having to modify your kit.


    But you are correct about the camcorder mic bit. Especially if everyone's playing so loud that it's distorting the mic.
