Representing over two years of research, development and field testing, the new Sontronics DM-1B for kick drum (and the pencil condensers DM-1T for tom and DM-1S for snare) takes 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 microphone has been 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.
