    Audix D4 reviews

    D4 - Hypercardioid Dynamic Drum and Instrument Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use and powerful 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic for low pitched sources 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.
