Audix D2 Trio 3-Piece Drum Microphone Package (Includes DVICE Mounts and Carry Pouches)

Audix D2 Trio 3-Piece Drum Microphone Package (Includes DVICE Mounts and Carry Pouches)

The Audix D2 Trio is everything you need for miking your toms, all in one convenient package. The tailored frequency response of the D2 drum microphone gives you all the punch, clarity and warmth needed for percussion without being muddy or boomy. The proprietary VLMTM (Very Low Mass) capsule technology provides superior transient response and more accurately captures every detail of your music. The included DVICE mounts let you squeeze these microphones into tight places eliminating the need for bulky microphone stands.

Designed, machined, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the D2 is a dynamic instrument microphone used for stage, studio and broadcast applications. The D2 is characterized with a hypercardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control and is equipped with a VLM™ (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction.

The D2 is lightweight, compact and easy to position. With a wide frequency response of 68 Hz - 18 kHz and the ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 144 dB, the D2 is an excellent choice for miking instruments with a percussive nature such as rack toms, congas, saxophone, guitar cabinets and brass.

The D2 is manufactured with a precision machined aluminum body, durable black anodized finish, dent resistant steel mesh grill and gold plated XLR connector. Transformerless design, low impedance, and balanced output allow for interferencefree performance even with long cable runs.

ARCHITECT AND ENGINEER SPECIFICATIONS

The microphone shall be of the dynamic type operating on the moving coil principle and the capsule shall be VLM Type B. The polar pattern of the microphone shall be hypercardioid. The nominal output impedance shall be 280 ohms at 1 kHz.The microphone shall have a sensitivity of 1.2 mV / Pa at 1 kHz and shall handle a sound pressure level of ≥144 dB. The microphone body shall be machined of aluminum and the grill cap shall be steel wire mesh. The overall dimensions shall be 21.5 mm in diameter at the base, 39 mm in diameter at the widest point and 100 mm in length.

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

The D2 is a low impedance microphone and should be plugged into a “mic level” input of your console, mixer, or recording device. Please note that your microphone does not require phantom power and will not be affected in any way by phantom power should it be running simultaneously while the microphone is in operation. Avoid plugging or unplugging the microphone from the PA system unless the channel is muted or the volume of the system turned down. Failure to do so may result in a loud “popping” noise which could seriously damage the speakers in the PA system provided when not in use. Moisture of any kind can adversely effect the sound and performance of your microphone.

USER TIPS

The D2 has an extremely tight hypercardioid pick-up pattern in order to help eliminate sound from other instruments on stage from “bleeding” into the microphone. For this reason, the D2 is exceptionally effective in capturing the sound of each component of a drum or percussion kit.

Drums & hand percussion: As a general rule, the bottom of the D2 grill should be 1-2 inches above the head of the drum and pointed towards the center. For more “ring” pull the mic back towards the rim. For less ring and more overtones, position the mic 1-2 inches inside the ring. For more attack, place the mic very close to the head and for more overtones and decay move the mic further away from the head.

Guitar cabinets: The D2 can be placed within 1-2 inches of the grill cover at a 90 degree angle pointing directly at the speaker. If the mic is placed closer to the edge of the speaker, you will minimize the higher frequencies and get a warmer, fatter tone. To capture more highs, move the mic closer towards the center of the speaker.

Horns: Place the mic within 1-2 inches of the bell, especially when on a stage with drums, bass, guitar, etc. For jazz, classical, and music where the stage volume is lower, the mic can be placed further away for a richer, fuller sound.
