CAD Audio D12 Cardiod Dynamic Kick Microphone

Neodymium Cardioid Dynamic Microphone The D12 is a cardioid neodymium dynamic microphone specifically designed for bass drum and other low frequency sources. The D12’s wide dynamic range and fast transient response produces an open, detailed sound with extra punch when miking kick drums, large percussive instruments, and bass guitar amplifiers. All metal housing with integrated mic clip. Available in Stage Series Drum Packs or separately.

 The D12 is a large-diaphragm, neodymium, cardioid, moving-coil dynamic microphone specifically designed and carefully equalized for kick drum capture and reinforcement. Special attention has been given to enhancing “thump”, “crack”, and “click”while reducing “boxiness”. Neodymium magnetics allow reduced coil mass for transient agility and impedance reduction. Although designed for kick drum, excellent results are also obtained when used on floor toms, electric guitar and electric bass cabinets. The die-cast metal body and hardened protective steel screen provide rugged durability. Integrated swivel mount is included.
