Thanks to Lee Haydn of this parish, I now have a rather nifty looking internal bass drum mic mount. It's similar to this Gibraltar one except for there being a big chunk of rubber in its construction for isolation purposes.
Anyway, what would be a good starting point for mic placement? I'd like a punchy but rounded tone if that makes sense. More DOOPH! than CLICK! or BOOM!

Useful stuff, Ant. My ears will of course be the guide but it's good to have a starting point.

This .pdf from Shure's website is quite informative on Simon Phillips' mic choice and placement, including a section on his bass drum mic placement...
and some general advice here...
Of course, always let your ear be the guide...

I use a ported reso if that makes any difference.

Turn the mic more to the wood than the skin centre and back off to around half a foot.
