Nady DM-80 overview

  • 1Description

The Nady DM-80 Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone delivers an enhanced low frequency response ideal for capturing kick drums and bass cabinets. The DM-80 is an ideal choice for both sound reinforcement and recording applications, and features a neodymium element for fast transient (peak) response, high headroom and low distortion. The cardioid polar pattern minimizes leakage and extraneous signals from other instruments, ambiance, etc. The DM80 includes a rubber mount that also aids in absorbing noise due to vibration, shock and handling.

Cardioid pattern allows close miking without bleed-through from other drum kit pieces
Neodymium element delivers maximum output
Up to 140dB SPL handling capacity for distortion free reproduction of even the loudest drums and other instruments
Transformerless moving-coil dynamic design for enhanced bass and fast transient response
All metal construction for maximum reliability
Special rubber shockmount mic holder minimizes floor vibration pick-up
Incredibly small, low-profile design for minimum visibility and versatile close-miking placement around the drum kit
Gold-plated XLR for maximum conductivity
Full frequency response for sonic punch with exceptional clarity

    Nady DM-80 reviews

    DM-80 Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Percussion, microphone If you're going to sell a product such as the dynamic kick drum microphone you should definitely include links after the purchase. For the different attachments/accessories. Because I wasn't aware at first how the mircophone would be attached to the drum.. I didn't find out until I got it that the attachments cost extra! So like maybe more explanations! I wouldn't have minded paying more, i would've gotten the attachment (either the clip or the mic stand) at the same time I bought the mircophone, if I knew I needed it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar for the $$ I have a whole box full of nady mic's they all treat me well. I use a 18 bass drum 99% of the time in the studio and my D6 is just to chubby sounding with it I was using an old sm57 which suddenly conked out. Got this one a whim as I have several nady 460's and like them a lot. I leave this kit mic'd up most of the time so need quite a few mic's In my tool box. Am very pleased sounds better than the sm57 in this app. Has a good slap and enough bottom without having to eq some out. Just add a gate and I have a great bass drum sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mike for the money I bought the DM80 to mike my cajons and it works great.Does an excellent job bringing out the bass. I also have a DM 70, which is also an excellent mike. My only complaint is the padding in the case is not formed to hold the DM80, it is designed to hold the smaller DM70.Would highly recommend this mike.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Go Wrong This mic sounds great - I've used it on various amp cabinets (specifically Hammond Tone Cabinet and bass) and it sounds fantastic. Can handle whatever SPL you can throw at it, even sounded surprisingly sweet on close-up dialogue. Very rugged and solid, quality feel and $ performance.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mic for the price Great price for a decent mic...bad for kick drum, but good for floor tom or other low-pitched instruments. Built ruggedly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic for Cajon Small and great sound. I use for cajon and with desk top stand it fits great on cajon. Very reasonable price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Enough for Rock The DM-80 might not be the BEST kick drum microphone out there, but for its price, this mic does the job. I play a 22 x 18 bass drum and the DM-80 picked up all the low humph and the highs of the hit to produce a very rich sound. As good (or better) as any SM-57.
