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.

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.

Awesome on floor tom, and kick!
Theodore Miller, 09.09.2019
This is my second D6, bought it to use on the floor tom for metal/rock bands, already having one to use on the kick. For the kick i pair it with a Beta 91a, both of these mics are great on their own, but put them together and they're huge. Plus its great to know if the cable to either of them goes faulty i can mix the rest of the show with either mic.
They both pair well with LP Claws, for discrete positioning.

Great sounding mic, but seemingly fragile :(
JamieV, 08.01.2019
I love this microphone. It feels like a serious bit of gear and the mic clip that's included is fantastic and makes it easy to position. However I (well technically the drummer I was micing up) managed to destroy the mic with SPL. I messaged audix and they repaired the mic but I am much more careful with my placement to make sure it's not too close to the head of the drum (either inside or outside the whole a little)

Miking up and recording a drum kit is a fairly complicated procedure, and this can apply equally to choosing the right mics for the job.
