Seven microphones and accessories come packed into a durable aluminum carrying case, so you have everything you need to capture a complete drum kit, or mic bass and guitar amps, percussion, woodwinds and other instruments. The collection features the latest version of the legendary D112 MKII bass drum mic, the compact C430 overhead mic, and the popular D40 drum microphone. Each features high maximum SPL handling and rugged metal casing to ensure great sound, night after night.D40 Professional Dynamic Instrument Microphone
The D40 professional instrumental microphone with its solid all-metal body will stand up to the hardships of night-after-night onstage use with a smile. Its patented Varimotion diaphragm uses a unique laminated material to damp high resonance peaks, leading to a quantum leap in audio performance. The transducer is protected by a sturdy wire-mesh cap and can take extremely high sound pressure levels with ease.
An integrated stand adapter in combination with the included H440 mounting bracket makes the D40 a highly versatile tool for use on drums, percussion, wind instruments and guitar amps.
The C430, professional condenser microphone, is specifically designed for cymbal and overhead miking. The frequency response of the C430 ensures a uniquely crisp sound which often reduces the need for external EQs.
With its extremely compact external dimensions, the C430 microphone will keep a low profile in any application without compromising audio quality.
The D112 MkII professional dynamic bass drum microphone features a new integrated flexible mount, while retaining all the sonic strengths that have made it's predecessor the industry-standard. Over the years the D112 has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the best bass drum microphones ever made, for its high SPL capability, punchy EQ and bulletproof construction.
The D112 MkII can handle more than 160 dB SPL without distortion. Its large diaphragm has a very low resonance frequency that delivers a solid and powerful response below 100 Hz. Its authoritative low end is complemented by a narrow-band presence boost at 4 kHz that punches through even dense mixes and loud stage volumes with forceful impact. One of the many reasons artists and sound engineers love the D112 MkII is that it requires no additional EQ to sound just right as soon as you bring up the fader. Further refining its performance, the D112 MkII features an integrated hum-compensation coil that keeps noise to an absolute minimum.
In addition to being an exceptional bass drum mic on stage and in the studio, the D112 MkII is an excellent choice for miking electric bass cabinets and trombones.
