Audix D6

Special microphone for bass drums

The D6 is a dynamic microphone which is outstanding at reproducing especially low frequencies. Offering a frequency range from 30 Hz to 15 kHz, it is therefore ideally suited for recording kick drums, bass cabinets/combos and other similar instruments. Transformerless electronics as well as low impedance and balanced outputs guarantee an interference-free performance - even with the use of long cables.

  • Frequency range: 30 - 15,000 Hz
  • Impedance: 200 Ohm

Easy and brilliant for simple kick drum success

Christopher1875, 29.01.2016
Making no pretences to be an all-rounder, the D6 is clearly aimed at big fat kick drum sounds. It's a large-diaphragm mic with anything but flat response, scooping out the boxier low mids whilst accentuating the deep lows and giving some click near the top. It makes for a supremely efficient live tool given that the natural frequency response represents what many engineers will go for anyway. Couple this with good build quality, great reliability (so far anyway) and a reasonable price tag, it's something I would recommend for any small/mid live venue that takes pride in it's sound whilst also working on tight turnaround times. Travelling engineers will generally approve too.

Superb Kick Drum Microphone

Rob444, 17.04.2018
Previous to buying this microphone I was using the AKG D112 (which unfortunately broke)..... So I thought I'd try something different - and very glad I did.
Straight out of the box and without any EQ at all it sounds pretty good (both inside and outside the bass drum) - very punchy.
Even when (unbeknownst to me) the mic was pointing sideways - inside the kick drum (due to a loose mic holder) it still sounded rather good!
I can't think of any cons so far - All in all a very good purchase.
