The Avantone CDMK6 is a 6-mic drum-microphone kit that makes it easy to mic up a full drum kit, using drum-specific, 2nd-Generation Avantone dynamic mics, as well as the company's CK-1 condenser mics. The CDMK6 is equally at home on stage or in the studio.

The included MONDO kick drum mic has an aggressive frequency contour, handles 145 dB SPL, and is equipped with an internal shockmount assembly for the capsule, which minimizes the vibrations that cause rumble.

For the snare, you get the ADM snare drum mic, which gives you similar voicing to the "industry standard" snare mic, but with better lows and an extended high-end. The ADM is also an excellent choice for high toms, bongos, congas, guitar cabinets, and many other miking chores.

The CDMK6 provides two ATOM tom microphones. These feature oversized capsules designed for capturing hefty lows and a penetrating attack. The mic has an internal shockmount assembly for the capsule, which helps prevent the vibrations that cause rumble. The ATOM is also recommended for large congas, djembe, and bass-amp cabinets.

Two Avantone CK-1 cardioid condenser mics are provided for overheads. The mics each have a low-frequency cutoff switch, and a -10 dB attenuation switch. The CK-1s let you focus in directionally on the cymbal sounds, while their cardioid patterns reject unwanted signals coming in from the sides and back. The kit also includes 3 PK-1 PRO-KLAMP drum mic mounts, which take the place of bulky mic stands by making it possible to attach the mics directly to the snare and tom rims. The PK-1s help reduce unwanted vibration, and make positioning the mics a snap. All six mics come with SSM shockmounts, which help decouple the mics from unwanted low-frequency transfer and vibration.

The dynamic mics in the kit feature die-cast zinc bodies, and the CK-1's are brass. All are durable, and have no plastic parts to break. The mics come in a custom, vintage-tweed case that features metal corners, locking latches, a high-density foam tray, a plush lining, and a faux-alligator trim exterior. The interior foam can be lifted out to provide additional storage space for cables and other accessories.
