Audix D6 Cardioid Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone
Your Mic for Huge, Undistorted Kick Drum Sounds
The Audix D6 is the perfect choice for superb kick drum sounds. This microphone’s cardioid pickup pattern does an excellent job rejecting sound from external sources to keep the sound of the kick drum pure and clean. The D6 boasts a VLM (Very Low Mass) diaphragm to react quickly to the attack of the beater, and its 30Hz–15kHz frequency response sports big bumps right where you need it for earth-shaking lows without sacrificing the attack. For other low-frequency instruments such as bass, the D6 fares equally well.
Tuned specifically for kick drum and low-frequency instruments
The D6 is designed specifically to tackle kick drums and other low-frequency instruments. There is 14dB of boost at 60 Hz, 15dB between 4–5K, and 17dB between 10–12k. The tailored response of this microphone makes it ideal for use with 22-inch bass drums. The D6’s 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 VLM diaphragm ensures that the mic responds very quickly to transients, ensuring the attack isn’t lost.
Sounds good no matter where you place it
Drums are one of the most challenging instruments to record, especially when trying to replicate the sound of a previous recording. The Audix D6 is designed to sound good in any position and it is not dependent on finding the “sweet spot” of the drum. This is great since you know that time after time, the kick will sound great!
Build to withstand the rigors of studio and stage
Here, we favor the D6 in both studio and stage applications. For starters, this microphone has a maximum SPL of 144dB — in other words, more than enough to withstand a pounding kick drum or thumping bass cabinet. Additionally, its rugged machined aluminum housing can easily withstand whatever you throw at it.
