  • Good mic!

    Dynamic microphone for bass instruments capturing (or not I like it on some snare).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 4 years regularly live and in the studio, I have tried many mics same range before this one (beta 52, D112, e602) and for my use is the one who did best go .
    This mic is not neutral, moreover, it is not what is asked. To my taste it makes sense associated with 91 beta but is doing fine on his own when well placed.

    But a catch size, the clamp supplied with is really zero (poor quality plastic, replace quickly not anything better).
    This defect is compensated by the low weight of the mic that seems solid.

    Microphone for bass drum, dynamic blah!
    EXCELLENT MICRO.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have a two years but Mr. D6 and I know it must be since 2008.
    It is a microphone that sells itself as a "must have" of modern sondier. In any would say it is already equalized. You can imagine the business case for sondier not very sure of himself!
    It actually has a sound in air time bringing a heavy kick and impacted.
    But I remember the cheers of the B52, B91 and other AKG D112 today but here is the skinny not baggy ok.
    Experience tells me that the bass drum is an instrument somewhat marked by virtual methods and delivery systems.
    For my part I predicts a return of 421 by 2015. ...

    Dynamic type capsule wide cardioid.

    No used exclusively amplified bass drum and bass, and uniqt live, for my part.
    Preferred styles: rock, pop and metal. But TAF used in jazz, reggae or folk (I get there and yet not an eagle chuis sound).

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for 7 months.

    Other models tested often (live): SHURE Beta 52, AKG D112, E906 SENN (jazz and folk).
    Slightly less often (live in troubleshooting): BEYER M88N.

    The (large) +: a deep response in the bass attack very present without being aggressive harmonics attenuated in low-medium without deleting the richness of the instrument. It is quite immediate music, in short. For me the sound with this mic is tjr easier (faster) to color with the other four models aforementioned, QLQ is the sound of the instrument's original bass.
    This is mainly due, WADA, the curve very special and flattering but also character cardioid mic which allows more efficient recovery of the sound envelope of an instrument B52, eg

    (Small) -:
    - Its cardioid which makes it less repisse immunized against a B52 (hyper-cardio), especially in a confined space bar type (in my case, used a systematic ° gate)
    - Greater sensitivity to the waves, shocks and other vibrations that B52 or D112 on small scenes or low-damn bad, the AMA to its lightness (in my case, used No systematic suspension universal, as the OH, mm if not needed).

    Very good ratio Q / P, at least compared to its direct competitors.
    It costs a price SENN mm E902 (already played it, as a drummer, but never tried as sondier) and a little expensive than B52 +, a D112 or E906, for best results that WADA the last 3.
    For GC or bass, I would do this choice without hesitation if necessary. For a more versatile (percussion, winds ...) I choose rather a M88 (but then, nine is not price ... mm).

  • found the sweet spot

    The Audix D6 is a cardioid kick drum microphone that cost 200 dollars. It is very good and very affordable. We use to use a AKG kick drum microphone for a while and then went with a Shure microphone for the kick. Now we have the Audix D6 and wow, I have not seen a microphone in this price range do what the D6 can do.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Audix D6 has a nice punch to it, so if you are making easy listening music or some type of jazz music then this microphone might not work for you. The Audix D6 has a full and rich low end to it. The frequency response on the Audix D6 is only 30 Hz-15khz and you won’t need to position it perfectly or find that perfect microphone location in order for......

    The Audix D6 has a nice punch to it, so if you are making easy listening music or some type of jazz music then this microphone might not work for you. The Audix D6 has a full and rich low end to it. The frequency response on the Audix D6 is only 30 Hz-15khz and you won’t need to position it perfectly or find that perfect microphone location in order for it to give you that great sound either. As long as you have the microphone about 4 to 6 inches away from the drum you will get a full sound.
    I do think the Audix D6 sounds better in a live show than it does being recorded. It just has a live feel and flavor to it, if you record with it you may have to pull back the kick drum a little bit in the mix or else it could be a little over powering and drown out your mix.
    The Audix D6 is better than the Beta 52’s without a question. I was a Beta 52 user for about a year and then fell in love with the Audix D6 about 3 months ago and have not though about the Beta 52 since then. The precision and quality of sound are amazing for the price and I am extremely happy with our choice to use this microphone. This is the first Audix drum microphone that I have ever seen or used, and from now one it is my favorite kick drum microphone.

    This cardioid dynamic microphone is designed for bass drum, of course we must be able to use it for other purpose, with results more or less happy. I think the bass a Djembe Drum talk or example. See it on a bass amp ...
    I just tested on bass drum.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I made two with miking. I do not put 10 (I feel like it) because it is not versatile. Or the d112 or the 52 can be used on several styles sic D6 gives the big sound as djeun's would say. Its a huge, modern, with everything you need to kick and bass quite round the resonant head. No need to équalo it work right away. The microphone is placed preferably right "entrance" of the box.

And it sounds live even without compression ... HUGE, amazing.
    Well there is magic in the product that makes the result of his current Rock prod.
    While working on a little one can have different results. For example, I relaxed the resonance of a "small" Mapex 20 inches and I had one in his ear close to my plastic trash. But once past the D6 a marvel of massive thick chain. (I would put examples if I find a way).
    on the other hand friend (s) of the Jazz and the song go your way, too typed for use in these areas of music. I bought a D112 which will agree better with the versatility ...

    Brief for rock (modern) he is unstoppable and has no competitors, it is easy to implement, light and reliable.

    Do not really suitable for the rest unless like me you like to experiment and create "sounds" out of eternal standards USIT for 30 years.

    I do not ask for more than 57 on Snare for ages unless I find the result lives up to my ears :)

    In short a great tool for musicians. For € 200 from your dealer is not Cheros given the surprising quality of the microphone. I no longer would separate.

    The Audix D6 is drum microphone design specifically for miking kick drums. I am a student, musician, writer, and pretty good line dancer residing in beautiful Nashville, TN. I've been a drummer and guitar player on and off for the past 10 years of my life and have began engineering and producing in the past 4. I currently play drums for the band Brookline and you can see me rockin' an Orange County Drum and Percussion or Mapex kit decked out with Zildjian K Hybrids.

    Our studio bought this mic about 3 years ago for right around $200 from Sweetwater. We bought this mic to expand our mic catalog for a new studio at a Recording Arts college in Nashville, TN.

    This mic has great low end response and a accurate reaction to the attack of the beater as well. It is great as a kick mic in the live scenario and tends to sound great on just about any kick through a system and really sends some boom to the subs that hit the audience deep in the chest. It has a 14 dB boost in the 60Hz range and a 15dB boost around 4kHz giving a great mid range scoop while grabbing that beater sound.

    This sounds pretty good in the studio but I prefer the AKG D112 or the Yamaha SubKick. It also claims to sound great wherever you choose to place it and this is most certainly not true. It has a lot of eq tuned into it that is supposedly geared towards the kick drum and I find that it makes it more difficult to get the sound I'm looking for in the studio because of it's sweeps and boosts.

    It seems to be a well constructed mic. It has a strong black casing with a guard over the grill to reflect hits and protect it if dropped.

    Bottome Line? This mic is great in the live scenario and beefs up just about any quick when pushing it through a system. It is a little to 'pre-tweaked' for my taste in the studio and doesn't lend nicely to EQ because of it's natural frequency curve. At this price, its a great value and gets the job done. This mic is receiving a '3' for studio application and a '4' for live use.

    Audix D6Published on 03/27/04 at 15:00
    Picked this one out of about ten played that day at American Music, Ventura, CA. Paid $350 in 2002. Sounded better than all the rest including a high priced Fender!

    Extremely light, resonates nicely against my rib cage when playing, good sustain for an acoustic, nice bass response.

    Have had to do a little surgery to get the action and playability where i like it. have lowered the bridge support (saddle?) and reset the truss rod a couple of times until the guitar aged enough for the wood and glue joints to stop "moving around". then had to file the frets. have also had to do this to high end Martins and Guilds costing many times more.

    Wood: mahogany body and neck, spruce (?) top, rosewood fingerboard. Nice tuners. Frets seem durable.

    While able to afford just about any guitar, couldn't justify the extra expense. A very nice instrument and a wonderful value for money

    Huge sound!

    Audix D6Published on 10/29/11 at 12:56
    The Audio D6 is a microphone touted as having a huge and undistorted kick drum sound by Audix. Audix engineered the D6 to have a diaphragm with very low mass so that the pickup of the beater of the kick drum is rapid and clean. The D6 is a cardioid microphone specifically tuned for kick and bass. It boasts a rather normal 30 Hz - 15,000 kHz frequency response range. It is also very compact, which makes it much easier to position in front of a kick drum.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have generally found the Audix D6 to have a very explosive, thunderous quality to it. Despite Audix's claims, the D6 does not seem to have the tightness to it that one would expect, as the sound that this microphone......

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have generally found the Audix D6 to have a very explosive, thunderous quality to it. Despite Audix's claims, the D6 does not seem to have the tightness to it that one would expect, as the sound that this microphone produces compared to other kick drum microphones is huge. The problem with this is that the saturation of the sound tends to muddy up the general sound of whatever music is playing.

    Therefore, I am not the hugest fan of this huge microphone's sound in the live setting. However, everything else that Audix boasts about is certainly true. I immensely enjoy the ease of positioning the microphone on a kick drum, and which for the sake of convenience, this feature is immensely useful, I honestly would prefer to be able to adjust a little bit of the saturated sound that this microphone puts out.

    At any rate, the Audix D6 is a fantastic microphone for a recording situation if you are looking for that explosive boomy kick sound. Although it may not be for everyone, it certainly is a fantastic microphone for the situations that it lends itself to. It blows you away, and although that is not always a good thing, it is just as often a fantastic quality for a microphone to have.

    It is a dynamic microphone.
    Fate for the taking of bass drums.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I for a month, and I find pluttgnial.
    Compared to the mid REFERENCE B52/SM91 type, it provides a nice walk without crushing the signal.
    This is the curve of rponse trs is adapted taking bass drum.
    It also offers the possibility to get a bass drum always dynamic, even when the drummer hits less.
    For now I am happy, its relatively compact Cabara allows easy placement.

    This dynamic mic for kick drum is just deadly! I fell in love it's crazy. To oblivion beta 52 or E602 core. It was a potato, a ball as they like in rock n 'roll. No need to take the lead for the placement, it rings in all conditions. I hardcore public address and it is not always easy to trigger, with this mic I do takes longer the head, my strip is straight.

    It's been 3 months that I have for anything and I will not return back. He looks super tough grid is well protected, I think I'm not about to part with it. It's true it's not cheap but frankly it's worth it. ...
