I'm attempting to use a low frequency accelerometer as a microphone on an acoustic bass drum for recording in studio and live concert settings. I will either attach the sensor directly to the drum shell surface, or suspend the sensor in front of the drum head.
I need assistance in selecting the correct accelerometer for this application. I also need help determining a system configuration for the sensor that will allow a sound board (supplying 48V phantom power through an XLR cable) to receive and use the signal from the accelerometer. I am looking to capture frequencies ranging from 1 Hz to 10 kHz if possible.
I realize most small accelerometers cap out at around 2kHz, but this is a new idea so i'm determining feasibility at this point. I've looked in to piezo and traditional microphone technology and have not been able to find anything
