Get An Outstanding Combination Of Drum Mics With The Audix DP7 7-Piece Drum Microphone Package W/ Clips
The DP7 professional drum microphone pack represents an outstanding combination of seven microphones designed to meet the demands of today's professional drummer, both on the stage and in the studio.
Included in the DP7 drum microphone package is the D6, Audix's flagship kick drum microphone, two – D2 dynamic drum microphones for rack toms, one D4 for floor tom, the i5 for snare and a pair of ADX51 studio condenser microphones for overhead miking. Also included are four D-Vice rim mount clips for the snare and tom microphones, and three heavy duty tension fit microphone clips for the other three microphones. Everything is conveniently packaged in a foam-lined aluminum road case for safe keeping when the microphones are not in use.
- The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare are must-haves for every drummer. The kick and snare are considered the core of any drum kit and the foundation for every groove. Close miking insures that they will be captured in the mix. If either the kick or the snare is unable to be heard, there is simply no groove. The D2 and D4 are industry standards for toms and floor toms. Being high SPL dynamic microphones, the D6, i5, D2 and D4 excel at “close miking”. This miking technique is required in order to capture the attack and percussive sound of the drum. By having the mic close to the source of the sound, it helps to isolate and control the sound of each drum.
OVERHEAD MIKING (AMBIENT)
- Supporting the idea that “less is more”, many engineers will use just two overhead mics to capture the natural sound of the complete drum kit. With two overhead mics, positioned correctly, it is absolutely true that you can capture the transients, tonality and balance of the kit in a completely phase-coherent manner. The ADX51, a pre-polarized condenser microphone with a 14mm gold sputtered diaphragm, is designed with overhead applications in mind. Due to its cardioid pickup pattern, high sensitivity and slim pencil design, the two ADX51 mics can be easily positioned overhead to provide a nice stereo image of the entire drum kit.
- With contemporary music and the volumes typically generated on stage, it is more practical and effective to create a blended effect of close miking and a stereo image of the entire kit from overhead. The D6 will help provide the earthshaking lows and the attack of the kick; the i5 will reinforce the depth and crack of the snare; the D2 and D4 will pick up the attack and overtones of the toms, and the ADX51 overheads will pick up the hi-hat, cymbals and the ambience of the entire kit. With the DP7, drums will maintain their sound integrity and critical presence, regardless of the size of the room and PA system.
