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

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 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..



Supporting the idea that “lless 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--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..
