Professional Drum and Instrument Mic Package
The DP8 drum pack is a premium ensemble of microphones designed to mic a five-piece kit with accuracy and fine control. Kick, snare, rack toms and floor tom mics feature Audix VLM TM capsule technology for natural and precise sound reproduction in high SPL applications. The ultra-compact M1280BHC hi-hat mic
and M1280B overhead cymbal mics capture complex timbres and wide dynamic ranges. Included are DVICE rim mounts eliminating the need for bulky mic stands.
• Professional set of 8 drum mics for stage or studio
• Mics work in tandem to replicate each drum accurately and independently
• M1280 condensers for overheads and hi hat perfectly reproduce transients and timbre
• Easy to set up and position
The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare are considered 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 ensures 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 also industry standards for toms and ﬂoor toms. Being high SPL dynamic microphones, the i5, D2, D4 and D6 excel at “close miking”. These four microphones, in conjunction with this miking technique, are guaranteed to capture the attack and percussion sound of each drum. Also, by having the mic close to the source of the sound, it helps to isolate and control the sound of each drum.
The M1280B cardioid condenser microphones are perfect for overhead applications. With an extremely small footprint of just 12mm diameter and 67mm in total length, mics become nearly invisible on video or IMAG feeds.
With contemporary music and with the volumes typically generated on stage, it is more practical and effective to create a blended effect of close miking and 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 capture the attack and decay of rack and floor toms; the amazing off axis rejection of the M1280BHC is perfect for hi-hat and with M1280B as overheads, drums will maintain their sound integrity and critical presence for both stage and studio regardless of the size of the room or PA system.
