This is my new Manito Percussion Red Ambrosia Maple solid shell one piece CAMEL skin requinto being played in three different rooms (carpet/matt, cement /tile, and an open room on wood floors).

I Like it! but to be honest, I can't tell the difference between Camel and Steer.
Cheers.

K.C., let me make a better recording of it. I have some nice mic's I need to hook up! I was not able to capture the unique tonal characteristics with the camera mic I think.

More important than the mic are the room acoustics and the mic placement. To my ear, room 1 sounds the best of the 3, room 2 the worst (although it looks the nicest). Room 1 sounds the "driest" ie least echo and reflection, most sound absorption. This is good when trying to hear the sound of the drum. Play with mic placement several feet from the drum or across the room, so you get a balanced sound like others will hear it. Don't dismiss the camera mic until you have tried it out thoroughly in a pretty dry (dead, absorptive) sounding room.
