          Comments about Audix D6 - Kick Drum Microphone:

          I have used the D6 on 3 shows with many more to come. It does just what it was designed to do. 6 to 8 inches away from the beater head in line with the beaters. It has made a great difference in our sound and has surprised a few sound guys who are fans of other mikes.
          I have no complaints. It is easy to use as you have very little adjustments on the mixing board

                Comments about Audix D6 - Kick Drum Microphone:

                I have been a sound engineer for about 30 years. I have used all the kickdrum mikes in the marked that is worth to mention.When I first discovered the D6 a couple of years ago I knew "this is it". This is the mike I have been looking for all these years. Its no longer needed to use two mikes for the kick as I used to, one for the deep and one for the click.This mike got both. I use it both in the studio and live.Its a hit.
