Audix has been selected to provide a custom silver D6 kick drum mic, along with the May Monorail internal kick drum mic mounting system.
The system is to be included as standard equipment in a limited edition of one hundred 40th Anniversary Collector’s Series Drum Workshop kits.
The Monorail system is designed to provide precise positioning, from back to front, to manage the proximity effect of the D6; balancing the snap of the batter head with the tonal characteristics of the drum itself. The system also provides flexibility from shell to head center on a rotational axis. The Monorail system can also accommodate a second Audix mic – an M44 for example – mounted forward to pick up the resonant front drum head.
The Audix D6 dynamic instrument microphone features extended low frequency response and is equipped with a VLM diaphragm. It is available individually or in several drum kit mic packages from authorized Audix dealers and distributors.
The May Monorail mounts internally to kick drums, utilizing existing drum hardware, and is hard wired to the AVC Audio Vent Connector for a drill free XLR connection. Pre wired Monorail installation kits including the Audix D6 are available for aftermarket installation to nearly any kick drum and are distributed through Drum Workshop.
Drum Workshop will make one hundred 40th Anniversary Collector’s Series Tamo Ash Exotic drumsets available worldwide on a limited basis. The six piece kit includes 8×10, 9×12, 12×14, 14×16 toms, 5.5×14 snare and 18×22” kick drum.
Each set comes with a signed certificate of authenticity. $11,814 MSRP.
