Looking for XLR connector panel to mount on bass drum

I want to mount a mic inside a bass drum and use an unported front head. This means the mic cable will need a connector mounted to the shell. Is this the best quality connector?Neutrik NA3MDF XLR Male-Female Feedthrough Adapter Panel Mount

It's a players kit so the extra hole will not hurt the value.

The Neutrik feedthrough will certainly work, but since you're probably going to have to shorten the mic cable anyway, why not just use a standard panel mount connector? You can still remove the mic if you have to and just coil up the couple of feet of cable inside the drum.That eliminates one extra male connector on the end of the short cable. Use a soldered connector or if you don't want to solder, there are screw mounts available.

This one is right angle and doesn't require drilling.

^ how does it not require drilling?

A connector looks fancier, but a cable fed through requires a smaller hole... You could get it really small if you got creative with the insulation.

The "May" system pictured works through the vent hole, while still allowing the drum to vent through. Very clever actually.

This probably the way to go. I do have a kit that I would never drill but I was planning to just feed a cord through the vent hole and make my first attempt at soldering

Do I still need to put a female end on the inside?

I think it has the female parts covered with three separate pin sleeves.
