Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone with Three Active FiltersWhy should you use the AKG D12 VR active dynamic microphone to mic up your kick drum? It's specifically made to handle the wide dynamic range, and has three active filters that help you sculpt a production-ready kick drum sound. The D12 VR will work without phantom power, delivering the true sound of your bass drum. Engage phantom power, and you get three active filter settings that dramatically help you sculpt the perfect sound. Whether you're recording or running live sound, you can't go wrong with the AKG D12 VR in front of the kick drum.
AKG D12 VR Active Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone at a Glance:
Huge sound from AKG's C414 transformer
The big, punchy bass drum sounds you'll record with the AKG D12 VR come courtesy of AKG's original C414 transformer. When you hit this transformer with high signal levels (like the ones your kick drum puts out), the C414 transformer adds a character that's undeniably sweet.
Three active filter modes
You can coax four distinct kick drum sounds out of the D12 VR, making it perfect for any recording studio or live sound application. Without phantom power, the tone is the pure, uncolored signal of your kick drum. But apply phantom power to the D12 VR, and you get access to three active filters. The first filter adds a low-end boost that beefs up your sound. The second filter provides a midrange cut, making room for other instruments in a busy mix. And the third filter actually combines the first two along with a high-end boost that enhances presence and snap.
Tailor-made for kick drums - and hand grenades
The ultra-thin diaphragm on the D12 VR clearly captures the complex low frequencies of your bass drum without sounding muddy or boomy - and it can handle an ear-shattering 164dB SPL. So whether your drummer is a Yeti with a 28" bass drum, or you're recording sound effects involving small-arms fire, the D12 VR can handle the high signal levels and it sounds great doing it.
