The set includes Avantone's Mondo kick drum microphone, ADM snare drum microphone, 3x Atom tom microphones, 2x CK-1 cardioid condenser microphones, CK-1 hypercardioid condenser microphone, all associated drum rim mounts, SSM metal shockmounts and a rugged, padded tweed vintage case.

  • Mondo Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone

    The MONDO Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone from Avantone is a ruggedly designed kick drum microphone with an elegant finish that is also well suited for bass cabinets and other low-frequency signal capturing. The MONDO delivers aggressive frequency contouring and accentuates bass frequencies, leaving engineers to make very little EQ adjustments in both live sound reinforcement and recording applications alike. The dynamic capsule is capable of handling high SPL before distortion and is internally shockmounted for a high degree of resistance against structure-born noise. Its elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish features nickel trim, rugged black grill and absolutely no breakable plastic components. The microphone includes a shockmount (SSM) and rugged padded carrying case.

    Designed for live clubs and concerts, as well as serious studio recording projects
    Very aggressive frequency contour that sounds huge right out of the box, so most engineers will find little need for EQ
    Die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly
    Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and a black grill assembly
    All components are designed and manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability
    Internal shockmounting on the capsule assembly to prevent the transmission of unwanted "rumble" from physical vibrations
    UPC: 852437001156
  • ADM Dynamic Snare Drum Microphone

    The ADM Dynamic Snare Drum Microphone from Avantone is a ruggedly designed snare drum microphone with an elegant finish that is also well suited for percussion, guitar cabinets, and instruments. The ADM delivers a transparent, familiar snare drum sound for recording and live sound reinforcement. It features an extended low frequency response and extended high-end, making it a versatile solution for a multitude of signal sources. The dynamic capsule is capable of handling high SPL before distortion and features a cardioid polar pattern.

    Its elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish features a nickel trim, rugged black grill and no breakable plastic components. The microphone is shipped with their PK-1 Pro-Klamp drum rim mount. The mount allows for close, adjustable positioning without bulky microphone stands, and is constructed with three stages of rubber dampening and decoupling material to suppress noise caused by vibration and rigorous playing. A shockmount (SSM) and rugged padded carrying case are also included.

    Delivers the familiar sound of industry standard snare microphones, with enhanced low-end and smoother, extended top-end
    Die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly and no plastic parts to break
    Machined insets on the barrel of the microphone body to lock the included SSM shockmount in place
    The included PK-1 Pro-Klamp drum rim mic mount allows confident microphone positioning while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations with three stages of rubber dampening/decoupling material. This isolation allows for professional results without the need for traditional tripod/boom stands
    UPC: 852437001163
  • ATOM Dynamic Tom Microphone

    The ATOM Dynamic Tom Microphone from Avantone is a ruggedly designed tome microphone that is well suited for congas, bass cabinets, and other similar instruments. The ATOM delivers large low-end and fast, penetrating attacks for recording and live sound reinforcement. Its big-tone requires little or no EQ processing and the dynamic capsule is capable of handling high SPL before distortion, and features a cardioid polar pattern.

    Its elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish features nickel trim, rugged black grill and no breakable plastic components. The microphone is shipped with a PK-1 Pro-Klamp drum rim mount. The mount allows for close, adjustable positioning without bulky microphone stands, and is constructed with three stages of rubber dampening and decoupling material to suppress noise cased by vibration and rigorous playing. A shockmount (SSM) and rugged padded carrying case are also included.

    Incorporates an oversize capsule that captures extended low-end as well as a penetrating attack. The Atom is custom voiced to yield a fat, big sound that often requires no EQ at all
    Because of the special voicing on the Atom, it also is fantastic on djembe, large congas, bass amp cabinets and other similar sources
    Die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly and no plastic parts to break
    Machined insets on the barrel of the microphone body to lock the included SSM shockmount in place
    The included PK-1 Pro-Klamp drum rim mic mount allows confident microphone positioning while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations with three stages of rubber dampening/decoupling material. This isolation allows for professional results without the need for traditional tripod/boom stands

    When miking high SPL sources, the -10 dB attenuation switch can be engaged to keep from overloading the electronics
    The 80 Hz high-pass filter switch reduces rumble and unwanted low frequencies
    UPC: 187586000041
  • SSM Professional Shockmount

    The Avantone SSM Professional Shockmount greatly reduces microphone noise caused by vibration, handling, etc. The SSM features a weighty, all-metal construction that makes it durable and further aids against energy transference that may cause noise. Its 4 o-ring suspension bands are durable and made of a resilient ethylene propylene material that is highly resistant to breaks and tears. The o-rings may be attached horizontally, vertically, or crossed for added tension. The SSM will successfully mount Avantone microphones, or third-party microphones measuring 0.74 - 0.86" (19 - 22mm) in diameter.
