Audix D6
Provides huge kick drum sound with ground shaking low end while delivering exceptional clarity and attack.
Designed, machined, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the D6 is a dynamic instrument microphone used for stage, studio and broadcast applications. The D6, which is characterized with a cardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control, is equipped with a VLM (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction.

The D6 is lightweight, compact and easy to position. With a wide frequency response of 30 Hz - 15 kHz and the ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 144 dB, the D6 is an excellent choice for miking instruments requiring extended low frequency reproduction such as kick drum, large toms, and bass cabinets.

Roadworthy construction includes a precision machined aluminum body, black anodized finish, laser etched model and serial number, steel mesh grill, Switchcraft XLR connector and includes a tension-fit heavy duty nylon mic clip.

Transformerless design, low impedance, and balanced output allow for interference-free performance even with long cable runs.

Applications
Live stage, recording
Kick drum
Floor tom
Bass cabinets
Leslie bottom

Besides echoing all the other reviewers' love of the sound of this mic, I just want to assure you that the build quality is tank-like. Also, don't be afraid to try it inside and out, the low freq capture is INSANE on this mic. In fact, recording with it will definately show your monitors some low-end affection!

This kick mic is unreal. I used it on a recording with a 16" Sonor kick... it sounds tight, punchy and full. Barely any eq'ing required. Beautiful job Audix

After 10 years of live and studio engineering at all levels, from small clubs to 1000+ venues, home studio to Broadcast. There's 1 kick mic I refuse to leave home without. This is it. It's similar to a D-112 post the standard EQ. Lots of attack and extended low end with NO wash or mud. 90% of the time no additional EQ is required live or in studio. Don't believe me... try it for yourself!!!

I was using an AKG D112 and picked up a set of Audix mics including the D6. It sounds great. It is amazing how it picks up the super low end spectrum of a bass drum. Definite must have for any rock/ metal drummer.
