PRE-PACKAGED SETS OF HIGH QUALITY DRUM AND PERCUSSION MICROPHONES

Audix revolutionized drum and percussion miking by designing instrument specific microphones. With the introduction of the Fusion Series, Audix created two attractively priced packages for todays up and coming professionals. 

The FP7 Drum Pack contains a combination of f2, f5 and f6 dynamic microphones and the f9 condenser for overheads. The f5 is tuned for snare drum and can be used as well for bongos, timbales, guitar cabinets and acoustic instruments; the f2 dynamic microphone is ideally suited for rack and floor toms, congas, djembe, bongos, timbales, brass and woodwind instruments. The f6, with its extended bass response, is designed for kick drum, bass cabinets, cajon and other low frequency instruments. The f9 condenser microphone is intended for cymbals and hi-hat.   

Built to withstand the rigors of live stage applications, the Fusion Series microphones are also excellent for rehearsal, school, House of Worship and a wide variety of home recording applications

USER TIPS

The f2,, f6 and f9 microphones are supplied with the DCLIP,, a heavy

duty nylon stand adapter with snap--tto--fft design;; the f5 is supplied

with the MC1 mic clip.. Each clip comes with a 3//88”” thread adapter

which is mainly used with European mic stands..

The following are some ideas as to how the microphones in the

packs interact with each other..

Kick drum::

The f6 is the kick drum mic.. A great accessory to help

position the f6 is the STANDKD,, which is specifcally designed for

that application.. To position the f6,, a good starting point is to place

the mic inside the front hole of the kick drum,, pointing toward the

beater.. (TTip:: be sure that the grill is completely inside the hole)).. For

more attack,, move the mic closer toward the head,, making sure not

to position the mic right in front of the beater..

Snare and toms::

 

The f2 (ssnare)) and f5 (ttoms)) are designed to be

close miked.. A good starting point is two inches above the rim

with the mic pointing toward the center of the head.. For more “rrim””

sound,, pull the mic back closer to the rim.. For more resonance and

depth of feld,, pull the mic further away from the head.. The trick is

to fnd the right balance between resonance and controlling bleed

from the other drums..

The FP7 package

includes two f9 condensers for overhead miking.. With the addition

of the overhead mics,, you have the opportunity to create more depth of feld and

more presence within the mix.. There is a choice of using both f9’’ss for overheads,, or

one for high hat and one for overhead..

Overheads::

There are several options when placing two mics overhead.. The most

common concept is to keep the snare as the focal point and move the mics into

various left and right positions equal distance from the snare;; 4 feet is a good

starting point.. For best results,, keep the mics in a vertical position,, keeping in mind

that you are not necessarily just miking the cymbals but the whole kit.. You will need

to fnd a balance between the overhead mics and the drum mics,, some of which will

be dictated by the venue and the PA system..

One for high--hhat,, one for overhead::

The f9 for high hat should be placed 2--33

inches above the top cymbal and toward the outside edge.. The overhead mic can

be placed above the cymbals,, generally above the rack toms.. In the case where

there are more cymbals on one side of the kit than the other,, the mic can favor the

side with the most cymbals..

Drums”” or visit the
