The Audix D4 drum microphone features the frequency and sensitivity response required for accurately reproducing signals from drums and percussion instruments. The D4 features a dynamic element capable of reproducing signals with high transients (peaks) without noise associated with distortion and overload.

The 38Hz to 19kHz frequency response provides extended response at the low-frequency range. The extended range results in accurate pick up of large percussion instruments such as kick drum, djembe, kettle drum and floor toms. The hyper-cardioid polar pattern provides a "tight" pick up area at the front of the capsule. Ambiance and noise at the off-axis sections of the microphone are greatly reduced, resulting in high signal-to-noise ratio.

Hyper-Cardioid Polar Pattern
The hyper-cardioid polar pattern is effective in eliminating noise and ambiance at the off-axis sections of the microphone.
Extended Low-Frequency Response
The 38Hz to 19kHz frequency response provides extended response at the low-frequency range. The extended range results in accurate pick up of large percussion instruments such as kick drum, djembe, kettle drum and floor toms.

      Comments about Audix D4 - Hyper-Cardioid Dynamic Drum and Instrument Microphone:

      Very low noise floor, high rejection of off-axis background sound. Great mic for situations where you want to support a bass instrument, yet avoid PA feedback. Solidly made.

      Comments about Audix D4 - Hyper-Cardioid Dynamic Drum and Instrument Microphone:

      Simply you must put the mic and start to hear a powerful and rich sound with an excellent transient, its capacity to capture the whole sound without distortion is amazing, you will not need almost eq. Great on toms, kick, bass cabinet and percussions too.Not is very good for acoustics guitars and voices.
