The DP4 mic package from Audio is a combination of 4 essential, high-quality drum microphones. All mics perform equally well whether it be on a live stage or in the studio. Included in the DP4 drum mic package is the D6, Audix's flagship kick drum mic, and three i5's for snare and toms. Also included are three D-Flex rim mount clips for the i5's, and one heavy duty tension fit mic clip for the D6. Everything is conveniently packaged in a foam-lined aluminum carrying case for safe keeping.
The D6 has a frequency response of 30Hz-15kHz and is characterized with a cardioid pick-up pattern. The D6 is designed to sound good in any position and it is not dependent on finding the sweet spot of the drum. The D6 capsule features the same legendary VLM technology that has made the D series percussion and instrument mics very popular for today's live stages and recording studios.
The i5 has the ability to capture the rich, deep resonance of the snare along with the attack necessary to cut through the mix. The i5's cardioid polar pattern allows it to focus on the specific instrument that is being miked while rejecting other instruments or ambient noise on stage. With a smooth and uniform frequency response of 50 Hz-16 kHz and an ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 140 dB, the i5 can be also used for a wide variety of instrument applications including percussion, guitar cabs, and vocals.
