Capture Your Kit with 5 Audix Drum Mics

The Audix DP5a drum microphone package gives you everything you to need to record or reinforce your kick, snare, floor tom and two rack toms. Great for stage or studio, this pack includes one i5 snare mic, two D2 tom mics, one D4 floor tom mic, and one D6 kick drum mic. A lightweight and durable aluminum carry case keeps all five Audix mics protected when not in use, and four included D-Vice gooseneck clips make it easy to mount your microphones directly to the drum rims.

Built to Deliver Pristine Audio Capture

You'll be impressed by the precision and accuracy your Audix DP5a drum mics when you hit playback for the first time. Each mic is application-specific to take in and reproduce each instrument. Audix is known for crafting mics with superior off-axis rejection, and these five microphones will help you minimize instrument bleed in the studio, while keeping feedback at bay in live situations. And with Audix's scratch-resistant spring steel grilles and gold-plated contacts, these microphones are built to last.

i5 Snare Mic

Your Audix i5 snare mic utilizes a probe cap design and provides a frequency response of 50 Hz to 16 kHz to get all the necessary body from your snare hits. A high maximum SPL of 140 dB assures you that issues like distortion won't muck up your takes, and the i5's cardioid polar pattern does a solid job of keeping out other instrument or drum bleed during each performance. This mic works well in the studio and on stage, and offers solid tracking capabilities for virtually any music style or genre.

D2 Tom Mics and D4 Floor Mic

You won't have any trouble capturing a well-articulated recording of speedy drum fills with your two D2 mid tom and D4 floor tom mics. The D2 mics capture a warm, booming, and clear sound without all of the mud. These are also a good set a mics to have for tracking woodwind instruments. The D4 harnesses a flat and linear response to capture the low end necessary to make each hit full of force and punch.

D6 Kick Drum Mic

A must-have microphone for tracking drums, the Audix D6 kick drum mic uses a cardioid polar pattern that works well in pretty much any position when you place it close to your kick drum -- you won't have to spend so time searching around for that "sweet spot," which often becomes a time-consuming "hit or miss" process. Just set this baby up and start tracking.

In the Studio or On the Stage

All five of the microphones included in this drum kit package are ready to rock for recording sessions as well as live performances. With their anti-feedback, anti-bleed design, you can perform knowing well that your drum kit will sound big, punchy, and full of attention-stealing force every beat of the way.

Features:

- Five application-specific drum microphones in one pack
- One i5 snare mic
- Two D2 tom mics
- One D4 floor tom mic
- One D6 kick drum mic
- Four D-Vice gooseneck clips
- Maximum SPL of up to 144 dB

Product Description

The DP5a, which is identical to the DP7 except for the condenser mics, is a perfect compliment of microphones for a 5 piece kit. All mics perform equally well whether it be on a live stage or in the studio.

Features:

- All-in-one solution for miking drums
- Instrument-specific mics for optimal results
- Rugged Audix quality
- Great for stage and studio
- Dflex clips for easy positioning
- Road case

Included in the DP5a drum mic package is the D6, Audix's flagship kick drum mic, two- D2's for rack toms, one D4 for floor tom, and the i5 for snare. Also included are four D-Vice rim mount clips for every mic except the D6 kick drum mic, which comes with a heavy duty tension fit mic clip. Everything is conveniently packaged in a foam-lined aluminum carrying case road case for safe keeping when the mics are not in use.

The Mics:


D6 for kick drum
The D6 has a frequency response of 30Hz-15kHz and is characterized with a cardioid pickup pattern. The D6 is designed to sound good in any position and it is not dependent on finding the "sweet spot" of the drum. The D6 capsule features the same legendary VLM technology that has made the D series percussion and instrument microphones very popular for today's live stages and recording studios.

i5 for snare
The i5's cardioid polar pattern allows it to focus on the specific instrument that is being miked while rejecting other instruments or ambient noise on stage. With a smooth and uniform frequency response of 50 Hz-16 kHz and an ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 140 dB, the i5 can be used for a wide variety of applications and for all genres of music.

2 D2s for toms
For bringing out the real, dynamic sound of your drum toms and congas, nothing beats the D2! The D2 accurately reproduces the warmth and punch you listen for from percussion, leaving out the muddy, indistinct "boom" that can mar recording. The D2's natural warmth also makes it a great mic for saxophones and other woodwinds requiring a true, sensitive, yet big, reproduction.

D4 for floor tom
Make sure your sound's low-end has that propulsive kick! The D4 really puts that extra "oomph" in your kick drum, bass amp, and other low instruments thanks to its flat, linear response. Since this kit comes with the D6, Audix's premier kick drum mic, a good application for the D4 with this kit would be the floor tom.

Included:

- 1 D6 for kick drum
- 1 i5 for snare
- 2 D2s for toms
- 1 D4 for floor tom
- 4 DVICE gooseneck clips

"Dp 5 Audix drum mics"
Overall: Zzounds.. Excellent speedy service. The DP series drum mics are amazing. D-6 kick mic has great deprh and punch as all the mics. The mic holders are the down fall of the pack. Spring tension is weak and does not fit on my Ayotte Custom kit with wood hoops. Needs a redesign with a lever to open up clamp. The mics sound awesome other wise.Thanks Scott Brokaw drummer for Day 41 Canton Michigan.
Style of Music: Prog, blues, country, heavey metal, gospel, pop, you name it I've played it. New band Day 41 from Canton Mi.
