Quote Eddie The Red:
Saw Flogging Molly this summer, and their drummer was using a subkick . . . between the kick, electric bass and accordion the bottom end sounded absolutely monstrous
I saw Flogging Molly too, in London, and this is bang on. It appears from some of the photos I got pre show, there were 2 kick mics! But yes, the low end was insane. And Molly were brilliant!
I can see a subkick being brilliant in a live situation for that low end, if you want it!
