"Loose?" Or lose? I've beard some pretty loose kicks. and some pretty loose drummers... who have no edge to lose!
Slight shift - where does "traps" come from referring to a drum kit?
By the way. Corey, you have things set for direct replies to you, and not the list - how and why do you do that? This is one of many yahoogroups I am on and the only one where people do that...

As the musician, you hear the kick drum from the beater side while the recording/PA microphone is positioned on the other side of the batter head. Often, even more disconcerting, was the headphone feed while recording!
