The MXL Essentials Drum Kit offers drummers and percussionists everything they need to start recording or performing. This kit includes the MXL A-55 Kicker Microphone, the MXL 606 Instrument Microphone, a Microphone Shockmount, an Aluminum Flight Case, a Hard Mount Mic Stand Adapter, and an MXL Microfiber Cloth.

This all-in-one kit combines the MXL A-55 Kicker and the MXL 606 instrument microphones. The MXL A-55 Kicker microphone is a dynamic mic for kick drums, bass cabinets, congas, or any other low-frequency instruments. The MXL A-55 microphone captures deep bass and low-end punch while maintaining a clean and clear pick-up for fast attacks.

The MXL 606 instrument microphone delivers the sound you are looking for when recording snare drums. This microphone features transformerless FET circuitry and a gold sputtered diaphragm capsule that provides a clean and clear tone. It also features a -20 dB switchable attenuation pad and low-frequency roll-off, eliminating undesirable low end leakage for your recording.
