AKG Drum Premium overview

  • 1Description

The AKG Drum Premium Microphone Set is suitable for touring, live, and studio applications. This set includes a D12 VR Dynamic Bass Drum Microphone, a C451 B Condenser Microphone for Hi Hat, 2 C214 Matched Pair Condenser Microphones for overheads, 4 D40 Dynamic Instrument Microphones for Snare and Toms, and 4 K&M 24030 Drum Rim Microphone Mounts for plug-and-play use. This hand-selected collection of high-quality microphones for miking drums comes in a rugged, heavy-duty metal carry case that ensures safe transportation.

The included D12 VR Dynamic Bass Drum Microphone is a reference large-diaphragm dynamic microphone with cardioid polar pattern. Designed specifically for kick-drum recording applications, this microphone has a thin diaphragm to enhance the low-frequency performance. Its warm sound is realized by the original C414 transformer, especially impressive at high signal levels.

The C451 B is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone which produces an airy sound with a high overload limit and features enhanced engineering details. The durable design around the handcrafted capsule and the low-noise preamp electronics ensure impressive results even under very harsh conditions.

The included C214 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones offer a 1” capsule on an integrated suspension to reduce mechanical noise. A switchable 20 dB attenuation pad allows recording of loud sources of up to 156 dB SPL. A switchable bass-cut filter allows close-up recording with almost no proximity effect.

The included D40 Dynamic Instrumental Microphones have a solid, all-metal body that makes them durable. The patented Varimotion diaphragm uses a laminated material to damp high resonance peaks and improve audio performance. The transducer is protected by a sturdy wire-mesh cap and can take high sound pressure levels with ease. Each of these microphones comes with a K&M 24030 mount.
