    Why don't you own this?

    Comments about Kelly SHU Composite Kick Drum Microphone Mount:

    I have one of these in my bass drum. Everything Kelly claims it can do, it does. So simple and yet so well built. I'm surprised no one thought of this 20 years ago. Thinking about a May drum mount? Here's the difference: The May mount attaches under existing hardware, but next to the shell, so you still get sympathetic shell and head vibration to your mic. Not so with the Kelly Shu. Mounts under existing hardware but with anti-vibe shock cords so no vibration at all. Easiest bass drum mount I have ever used, and I have used them all. There is a reason why Metallica's front of house guy uses these, among many, many other heavyweights. Get one today!

        Comments about Kelly SHU Composite Kick Drum Microphone Mount:

        Just as others have said, the SHU is easy to install and is well built. It comes with everything you need to customize the install based on your preferences. It can be installed vertically or horizontally in the kick drum and that is something you will need to consider based on the type of mic that you will use. I have a D112 positioned vertically about halfway inside the kick right below the beater strike point. I installed it right before 2 big outdoor festival gigs and our sound man had no problem dialing in the best sound. Being able to do away with the extra mic stand for the kick and a quick XLR plug into the snake, really is a huge benefit for set up and tear down.

          Comments about Kelly SHU Composite Kick Drum Microphone Mount:

          This is an excellent way of getting a real good punchy bass drum sound without having to completely empty your wallet. It is straightforward to install; it took me about 45 minutes to get the unit installed and the microphone mounted where I wanted it. The majority of your time will be spent cutting the rubber "cord" included to get the mount positioned within the bass drum and then maybe some additional cutting once you have the microphone on the mount. After that, you can forget all about it. My mount is holding a Shure Beta52A and works beautifully.

          Comments about Kelly SHU Composite Kick Drum Microphone Mount:

          This is a high quality product that is very easy to install. It is also one of the simplest and most economical solutions to rid yourself of lugging around unnecessary stands and equipment. You can install the SHU in any make of drum in 30 minutes or less. All you need is a screwdriver and a pair of scissors. This will give you a shock-mounted kick drum microphone holder without all the hassles and once it's done you never have to mess with it again. Simply the best money you will ever spend on a drum accessory!

                  Comments about Kelly SHU Composite Kick Drum Microphone Mount:

                  I use a Shure Beta 52A Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone for my bass drum and I wanted to get it positioned inside the drum where the beater pounds. I was taken aback during the install of this item due it requires the removal of the outer skin, several fasteners that hold the rim supports and deciding which ones to use. Once I figured out the method of the design, the task moved along rather well. It was also a chance to tighten all of the rim mounts as they were all loose anyway. I have my kit all mic'd up which works pretty good for my recording. I have a set of e-drums though which seem to work with less effort for recording and I just purchased a better set of e-drums for the purpose of recording and I'm deciding on taking my acoustic set down and just use the e-drums for everything. So buying this mount, which I don't necessarily regret, probably won't be getting used anyway if I disassemble the kit. But, I am reviewing the mount here so I will say it seems to be a decent concept but you might want to purchase a short mic cable to run out of your drum for easier hook-up. I don't think you'll be able to do it with your arm through the sound hole. And your mic may end up having to live inside your bass drum too.

                    This is a very clever way to have a mic set up in your kick drum and like it says in the add there is no floor noise as a result of using a standard mic stand.The unit was very easy to set up with a lot of different ways of configuring it to your style and preferred sound requirements. So far I have had no problems. I would use this unit in a live situation and studio with the microphone of your choice. Maybe in the future I will purchase the aluminum version just want to see how this one holds up ,so far so good.

                    Comments about Kelly SHU Composite Kick Drum Microphone Mount:

                    I've had one of the composites for over a year. Loved it when I first got it. Makes things easy no doubt. The downside is the rubber suspension pieces aren't holding up, three came loose on me. I was also having some trouble with "misfires", I use a kick drum gate, and internal mic'ing made this happen. Once I put the mic just inside the port, on a stand, it stopped misfiring. So I have finally removed my Kelly shu and gone back to a short mic stand.
