Quality Mic
drummer in Liverpool 02.12.2020
Impressed by the tone from this Mic, can capture a defined click or thud but can also dial it for nice tone/ timbre voicing of the bass drum for when playing Jazz or folk. Dynamic sound from micking floor toms with this as well.

Without a compressor on it, the D6 can hear and define a good amount of the ride cymbal, even if it is unwanted ;) as in to say - it has a surprising high freq definition for a bass mic.

Super strong chassis/ casing. Impressive SPL limit, although subjective when using full un-ported reso heads.. still got squashed when used 'on axis', close up. Curious to try this next under the bass side of a grand piano in a mix.

only disappointment is the supplied clamp, super fine casting yet firmly sprung, making it cumbersome to set up and can't see it surviving me long term even in a home studio, have other generic sprung mic holders that do a better job.

Einfach ein geiles BD-Mikrofon!
Andu1701 18.03.2022
Durch das "Badewannen"-Sounding und der hohen SPL-Resistenz ist dieses Mikrofon einfach perfekt für die Bassdrum. Sehr viel Low-End und Attack. Für härtere Gangarten gibt es m.M.n. in diesem und auch höheren Preisbereichen keinen Vergleich!
Wenn man einen sehr räumlichen oder sehr natürlichen Bassdrum-Sound möchte (für Jazz o.ä.) gäbe es bestimmt auch passendere Optionen.

Great kick mic
Willem Zweers 03.08.2023
The enhanced low and perfectly set attack frequency makes this the best kick mic on the market.
