You’re not likely to get “punch” with the mic so far from the beater. You just get a bunch of air rushing out the port.

Get the mic right in there 3″-4″ from the beater and a bit off to one side. I use a boom on the shortest Atlas round-based stand to do this. This will let you get some real thump. I favor the EV n/d868 for all my kick needs.

The other thing you can do is to set up your comp/gate combo to emphasize the attack, but that’s another issue.
