Sontronics has released three condenser microphones designed specifically for drums: the DM-1T, DM-1S and DM-1B.
The DM-1T and DM-1S are small-diaphragm pencil-style condensers designed to work on tom (DM-1T) and snare (DM-1S). With a cardioid polar pattern and switchable –15dB pad, the characteristics of each mic are designed to pick up nuances from the different drums. Each mic comes with a metal drum mount and mic clip.
The DM-1B is a large-diaphragm, end-fire condenser mic designed to cope with up to 150dB (with the –15dB pad switched in) and it comes in an aluminium flightcase. DM-1B is designed specifically for kick drum.
The DM-1T, DM-1S and DM-1B are covered by Sontronics’ Lifetime Warranty and come with a free download of Toontrack’s EZdrummer Lite.
Pricing & Availability
The three microphones are available for pre-order now and should be in the shops late February.
DM-1T and DM-1S will each cost around £119.99 • EUR300.
DM-1B will cost £299.99 • EUR300.
