Sontronics DM-1B, DM-1T & DM-1S
Sontronics has moved into application-specific miking with the release of 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 condenser mics designed to work on tom (DM-1T) and snare (DM-1S), with a cardioid polar pattern and switchable -15dB pad. Each mic comes with a metal drum mount and mic clip.
Meanwhile, 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 but also gives results on bass instruments and bass guitar cabinets.
The mics are available to buy individually, allowing producers to build up their set with extra tom or bass mics.
DM-1T and DM-1S: £119.99, EUR300 each
DM-1B: £299.99, EUR300

Let's go!
