Re: Mallet mics
In the studio sometimes that will be an approach, but it tends to generate more of the slap of the attack. Micing from below records more of the 'tone' coming through the bar/resonators. There's a reason why the general practice is below.
Personally we've been using bungee cords zip tied to make little slots for the mics now for a long while and they work amazingly well for much less than the mic nets.
