Sontronics DM-1B condenser mic for kick drum & bass

Representing over two years of research, development and field testing, our Sontronics DM-1B for kick drum and our pencil condensers (DM-1T for tom and DM-1S for snare) take Sontronics further into application-specific miking.

The DM-1B is a large-diaphragm, end-fire condenser microphone that has been designed specifically to capture and reproduce the various characteristics of a kick drum: the beater click, the heavy thump, the boomy decay and so on.

It has a switchable -15dB pad that allows the microphone to deal with a whopping 155dB, and its sturdy build plus the aluminium flightcase mean it will perform equally well in the studio and in live applications.

The DM-1B and our other drum mics were all tested to destruction before launch, by various session drummers, live musicians and producers, including Flood (U2, Killers, Arctic Monkeys) who found that the DM-1B also gives excellent results on bass instruments, especially bass guitar cabs.

All three drum mics - DM-1B plus the DM-1T for toms and
DM-1S for snare - are available now! Contact your local distributor or dealer or email us to find out where to buy.

"I used Sontronics drum mics with Flood at Assault & Battery where we compared them to mics costing significantly more. We were blown away by how good they sounded!" Mark Rankin
