Professional set of 7 drum mics for stage or studio
ADX51 condensers for overheads add spacial dimension
Recognized industry--wwide for exceptional performance and consistency
The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare are must--hhaves for every
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 foor toms.. Being high SPL dynamic microphones,, the D6,,
i5,, D2 and D4 excel at “cclose 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 (aambient))
Supporting the idea that “lless is more””,, many engineers will use just
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--ccoherent manner..
The ADX51,, a pre--ppolarized 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
practical and efective to create a blended efect 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--hhat,, 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..
