    Comments about Electro-Voice N/D868 Microphone:

    Versatile and durable kick mic. I gave up on my D112 after fighting its pequliar "pre-eq'd" sound for years. This mic has a bit of that curve too, but the hills and valleys are at much more appropriate places, and less extreme. I now have the option of getting a nice kick sound with only one mic. For most musical styles, I won't have to resort to weird tricks to get enough sub umph.

    The only downside is I can't see using this for anything other than kick drum. Fine with me, as that is what I bought it for.

      Comments about Electro-Voice N/D868 Microphone:

      I use a pair of these on on double-bass drum set. They don't need to be eq'd much (or at all) to get a good, punchy kick drum sound. I have several other good kick drum mics in this same price range, like the AKG D112, but right now, this is my favorite. I'm happy with it and have no complaints.
