Product Description

The Audix D6 Bass Drum Microphone will satisfy 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!

Audix D6 Bass Drum Microphone Applications

  • Live stage and coffee house to arena
  • Kick and floor drum, djembe, cajon
  • Acoustic bass and electric bass cabinets
  • Studio-any instrument requiring precise low frequency reproduction
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 road worthy 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.

Awesome mic! Buy the stand package!
I own Audix D2 mics and LOVE them on toms! The D6 is bullet proof as all pro Audix mics are! BUY THE MIC STAND PACKAGE! I thought the included mic stand would be a cheapy, but it's NOT. This stand is on par with my premium K&M stands (the best) and FAR FAR FAR better than the cheaper brands!
The right sound. The right build quality. A great mic stand too!
It's very hard to get a bad sound with this mic. I use them live and in the studio. The stand is rock solid, strong threads that wont strip, heavy base and very smooth telescoping.
Not as scooped in the mids and not quite as bass heavy as the Shure B52, but with the same great clarity on top....I find it's more balanced than the B52, which has a huge hole in the shell tone and is all "woof" and "click" (which is sometimes what you want). It IS more bass heavy and mid scooped than the AKG D112, most A-T kick mics, the Sennheiser 421 and EV RE20.

THE BEST
almost no EQ required
Place it just inside the sound port and walk away.
if you dont know how to EQ a kick drum this mic is perfect for you. A flat eq with this mic sounds just as good as a well EQed D112. with a bit of EQing, gating, and compression this is by far the biggest kick sound you can get. Floor toms are HUGE bass guitars are tight and deep sounding. All around excellent choice for any low end instruments.

Kick-ass Kick Drum Mic
Your general opinion of this product.
an, I read about it on the live-sound web chat room, and always striving for 'that sound', gave it a try. I usually patch the kicks thru a side-chain Para with a comp/limiter to get rid of the mud, and generally tune the drum to what I need. A lot of drummers don't seem to take the time to really set up their kit well, and FOH has to jump thru some serious hoops sometimes. This Mic KICKS-ASS! Great gain and i don't have to eq anymore! I still comp/lim because I value my gear, but the tone of this mic is great! I've used D12's, the Senn'ies, 91's with the B52's and this D6 with a 57 on the beater makes an incredible sound. Hands-down. No money wasted here and the thing tours well. There ya' go.
