From Our Research Team:
A Great All-in-one Drum Mic Kit from AudixThe DP-7 represents the latest collection of drum kit microphones from Audix, a manufacturer that has built its stellar reputation around crafting application-specific microphones. Included in the DP7 drum mic package is the D6, Audix's flagship kick drum mic, D2 and D4 mics for the toms, an i5, which proves useful on snare drums (as well as guitar cabinets), and a pair of ADX51s for overhead miking. A road case keeps everything safe when traveling. Everything you need for great drum sounds live or in the studio is included in the DP7!
Audix DP-7 at a Glance:
D6 for kick drum
The D6 has a frequency response of 30Hz-15kHz and is characterized with a cardioid pick-up pattern. The D6 is designed to sound good in any position and it is not dependent on finding the "sweet spot" of the drum. The D6 capsule features the same legendary VLM technology that has made the D series percussion and instrument microphones very popular for today's live stages and recording studios.
i5 for snare
The i5's cardioid polar pattern allows it to focus on the specific instrument that is being miked while rejecting other instruments or ambient noise on stage. With a smooth and uniform frequency response of 50 Hz-16 kHz and an ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 140 dB, the i5 can be used for a wide variety of applications and for all genres of music.
Pair of D2s for toms
For bringing out the real, dynamic sound of your drum toms and congas, nothing beats (ha, ha) the D-2! The D-2 accurately reproduces the warmth and punch you listen for from percussion, leaving out the muddy, indistinct "boom" that can mar recording. The D-2's natural warmth also makes it a great mic for saxophones and other woodwinds requiring a true, sensitive, yet big, reproduction.
D4 for floor tom
Make sure your sound's low-end has that propulsive kick! The D4 really puts that extra "oomph" in your kick drum, bass amp, and other low instruments thanks to its flat, linear response. Since this kit comes with the D6, Audix's premier kick drum mic, a good application for the D4 with this kit would be the floor tom.
The ADX51 is a pre-polarized condenser microphone designed to handle a wide variety of live, studio and broadcast applications. Characterized with a cardioid pickup pattern and a smooth uniform response over a frequency range of 40Hz-20kHz, the ADX51 is precision machined from solid brass with a low reflective black e-coat finish.

by The Sixth from Montclair, NJReal quick, let's talk about drum mics. Buy this set and you'll be half way to a perfect studio tone for almost any acoustic kit. But, like the late Billy Mays taught us, wait, there's more. The i5 wi... read more [+]ll make guitar amps destroy your face. The D2 and D4 will make your bassist's cab worth actually listening to for a few minutes. And the ADX51s make acoustic instruments and room micing sound unbelievably crisp and clear; they're about as nice as pencil condensers can sound in the sub-thousands-of-dollars price range. It's everything a young drummer could dream of and everything a young producer would like to get their hands on in one secret agent esque suitcase. close [-]

by Gordon from Kalamazoo, MII really enjoy using this set for a variety of applications. The D-6 is unmatched as a kick mic, and ALL the mics handhle their drum applications perfectly.

The small diaphragm condensers are a little darker than i like but still great (the level up from this has a better pair). I often use the D-2s and D-4 on live brass for a more "isolated" sound with clean audio! close [-]

Phenomenal Mics, for Live or Studio
by phagood from Nashville, TN USAI have always used Shure drums mics (Beta56, 52, 98) And have always loved them. But now I have a new love. These Audix mics are amazing. Everything from tight, full thump to clear smooth highs. If yo... read more [+]u are in a church or putting on a show these are for you. I use these for every genre, except jazz or blues (a bit too intense sounding) The D6 is definantely the heart and soul, if you can't afford the whole pack get a D6. close [-]

The Audix DP-7 drum mic kit is AMAZING! Each mic in this kit can be used for a variety of applications besides just micing drums. The i5 is great on the snare and adds a crsip clarity to any guitar cab, as well as making a great vocal mic (as long as you use a windscreen!). The D6 kick drum mic can also double as a great bass cab mic, for the rumble that will humble any bass enthusiast. The pair of ADX-51s are great as drum overheads, but can also be used in other applications such as room mics, and even micing a piano! I personally own and use these mics for a variety of uses, including those mentioned above. If you're looking for an unbelievable value in a mic kit, look no further then the Audix DP-7.
