The Audix D6 Bass Drum Microphone will not disappoint anyone looking for a huge, clean, undistorted kick drum sound in stage or studio applications. Bass Drum Mic Rule #1: If you want your kick drum to kick butt just put the Audix D6 Bass Drum Mic on the job. Designed and built in the USA by Audix specifically for the unique sub frequencies and attack of the bass drum, the D6 is highly sensitive between 80Hz and 120Hz, scooped in the mids, and boosted in the high frequencies. The result, you get all the bottom, none of the mud, and a clean, clear attack that usually requires no additional EQ or processing. Perfect! The cardioid pattern of the D6 makes it less placement-sensitive so you don't have to search around for the sweet spot during sound check. The casing of the D6 is milled from a block of solid aluminum so the D6 is a great road dog and an incredible studio performer. Comes with mic clip and carry pouch. The D6 has a frequency response of 30 Hz - 15 kHz and is characterized with a cardioid pick-up pattern. The D6 capsule features the same legendary VLM technology that has made the D series percussion and instrument microphones very popular for today's live stages and recording studios.
The Audix i5 was designed by the true microphone experts at Audix to handle a wide variety of applications and survive the absolute torture of live sound gigs. The Audix i5 is the ideal choice for snare, toms, percussion instruments, and can even handle the blistering SPL levels of electric guitar cabinets. Built around a bulletproof transformerless - XLR balanced design and housed in a precision cast zinc-alloy case with a steel mesh grill (stick hits no problem here), the i5 is a super-smooth dynamic mic featuring 50-16kHz frequency response and a very useable cardioid pattern with incredible off-axis rejection (>23dB) for exceptionally high gain before feedback.
The D-Vice by Audix is a super tough rim-mount mic clamping system featuring a quick release Sure-Grip spring-loaded clamp and a heavy-duty gooseneck for quick and precise adjustments. Accepts standard 5/8 inch thread mic clips. With a low profile and a unique mounting system, the D-Vice will attach to the rim of most drums and rimmed percussion. Providing a benefit to both the player and the engineer, the low profile mount will provide precise positioning and can be attached using only 1 hand. Precision molded out of composite material, the patent pending D-Vice can easily accommodate any 5/8 inch microphone clip. With the introduction of the D-Vice, the drummer's concerns about microphone positioning are eliminated. Audix has subjected the D-Vice to rigorous road testing and it is rock solid. With the low profile and low mass, it is extremely convenient for the drummer and the engineer.
