The Audix D2 Trio is everything you need for miking your toms, all in one convenient package. The tailored frequency response of the D2 gives you all the punch, clarity and warmth needed for percussion without being muddy or boomy. The proprietary VLM (Very Low Mass) capsule technology provides superior transient response and more accurately captures every detail of your music.
The included DVICE mounts let you squeeze these mics into tight places eliminating the need for bulky mic stands.
Designed, machined, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the D2
is a dynamic instrument microphone used for stage, studio and broadcast
applications. The D2 is characterized with a hypercardioid pickup pattern for
isolation and feedback control and is equipped with a VLM™ (Very Low Mass)
diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction.
The D2 is lightweight, compact and easy to position. With a wide frequency
response of 68 Hz - 18 kHz and the ability to handle sound pressure levels in
excess of 144 dB, the D2 is an excellent choice for miking instruments with a
percussive nature such as rack toms, congas, saxophone, guitar cabinets and
The D2 is manufactured with a precision machined aluminum body, durable
black anodized finish, dent resistant steel mesh grill and gold plated XLR
connector. Transformerless design, low impedance, and balanced output
allow for interference-free performance even with long cable runs.

The microphone shall be of the dynamic type operating on the moving
coil principle and the capsule shall be VLM Type B. The polar pattern of
the microphone shall be hypercardioid. The nominal output impedance
shall be 280 ohms at 1 kHz.The microphone shall have a sensitivity of
1.2 mV / Pa at 1 kHz and shall handle a sound pressure level of greater than or equal to 144 dB.
The microphone body shall be machined of aluminum and the grill
cap shall be steel wire mesh. The overall dimensions shall be 21.5 mm
in diameter at the base, 39 mm in diameter at the widest point and 100
mm in length.
The D2 is a low impedance microphone and should be plugged into
a “mic level” input of your console, mixer, or recording device. Please
note that your microphone does not require phantom power and will
not be affected in any way by phantom power should it be running
simultaneously while the microphone is in operation. Avoid plugging
or unplugging the microphone from the PA system unless the channel
is muted or the volume of the system turned down. Failure to do so
may result in a loud “popping” noise which could seriously damage the
speakers in the PA system provided when not in use. Moisture of any kind
can adversely effect the sound and performance of your microphone.
