The KickTone Dynamic Bass Drum Microphone from Morton Microphone Systems is a microphone designed to capture the full spectrum of sound produced naturally in the resonant chamber of a bass drum. It can be used in several environments for capturing audio in live stage, recording, rehearsal, and theater applications.
The microphone is built around a hemp diaphragm that is both stiff and lightweight. It provides damping characteristics and delivers a punch with well-defined sound. There is a second, co-axial dynamic structure that picks up higher-frequency transients, which gives the bass drum its snap.
The KickTone mic can be mounted in two ways. You can mount it on a standard microphone stand, but much better, you can attach it directly to a bass drum's resonant head with a proprietary slide bracket, which is supplied with each mic and keeps it securely locked in the drum's sweet spot. In addition, it doesn't block the drum head artwork or block the view.
Finally, the KickTone is suitable to use in any situation requiring the reproduction of sub to high frequencies, whether you are recording in the studio, performing live at a venue, or even rehearsing your set lists.
