Audix DP4 4 Piece Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone with Three DFLEX Mic Mounts 

The DP4 is a perfect complement of dynamic microphones for close miking of a variety of sources on-stage or in the studio. Included in the DP4 microphone package are the D6, Audix’s flagship dynamic kick drum microphone, and three i5s, Audix’s best-selling instrument microphone. Also included are three DFLEX mic mounts for easy attachment to a wide variety of instruments. All microphones and clips are conveniently packaged in a foam-lined aluminum carrying case for travel and safekeeping when the microphones are not in use. The case also features three additional expansion slots for vocal microphones.

The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare and toms are considered must haves for every drummer. The kick and snare are considered the core of any drum kit and the foundation for every groove. If either the kick or the snare is unable to be heard, there is simply no groove and close miking insures that they will be captured in the mix. Being high SPL dynamic microphones, the D6 and i5 excel at “close miking”. This miking technique captures the attack and percussive sound of the drum. Also, by having the mic close to the source of the sound, it helps to isolate and control the sound of each drum. On toms the i5 provide a clear accurate signal and the cardiod pattern allows you to use one mic between two rack toms if inputs are at a premium.

USER TIPS 

D6 - Kick Drum: To position the D6, a good starting point is a few inches
inside the port of the front head with the mic pointing off-center and not
directly at the beater. For more attack, move the mic closer towards the
beater. For more bass, pull the mic farther away from the beater.

D6 - Bass Cabs: For bass cabinets, position the mic 90 degrees to the grill
cloth and 1-2 inches inside the edge of the speaker.
i5 - Snare and Toms: A good starting point is 2 inches above the rim with
the mic pointing towards the center of the head. For more “rim” sound, pull
the mic back closer to the rim. For more resonance and depth of field, pull the mic farther away from the head. The trick is to find the right balance between resonance and attack while still controlling bleed from the other drums.

i5 - Guitar Cabs: The i5 can be placed within 1-2 inches of the grill cover
at a 90 degree angle pointing directly towards the speaker. As the mic is
placed closer to the edge of the speaker, you will minimize the higher
frequencies and get a warmer, fatter tone. To capture more highs, move
the mic closer towards the center of the speaker.
