Does your kick drum sound like it's on a diet? If so, Sweetwater has the answer to your sonic problems: the D112 MKII bass mic. Its presence peak makes your low-frequency instrument punch through in almost any mix. Being a kick drum standard for years and years, it is also often seen miking up bass cabinets, guitar cabinets for low-tuned performances, and anywhere else optimum low-frequency performance is a must. And its integrated flexible mount ensures you can always position it where it needs to be.

Kick drum mic with astoundingly high SPL capacity

The D112 MKII has earned a well-deserved reputation worldwide as the best kick drum microphone ever made. That has everything to do with the fact that its 160dB max SPL rating can take just about any signal you throw at it. Heavy-footed drummers won't faze it. The D112 MKII performs in those environments without any audible distortion. Quit running a microphone designed for your singer's voice on your bass drum. Give your kick the sound it deserves with the AKG D112 MKII.

Specially engineered diaphragm for excellent low-frequency response

The D112 MKII's specially engineered diaphragm with a very low resonance frequency maintains solid and powerful response below 100Hz, while a narrow band presence rise at 4kHz punches through dense mixes with little or no added EQ. The result is a kick drum sound that ideally balances precise definition and forceful impact. The D112 MKII is also an excellent choice for use with bass cabinets, trombones, and other bass instruments.

MKII features a highly flexible mount

There's no denying that the AKG D112 is a standard for bass drum miking. But the rigid mic stand mount could really make it difficult to get that microphone right where you need it to capture the optimal sound you're going for. The D112 MKII solves this problem with an integrated flexible mount. Getting the D112 MKII into your kick drum, mounted flush against a bass cabinet, or any other way you may need to angle the microphone is now possible. A flexible mic is even more flexible than before.

Great on Kick and Bass Amp

This mic rocks on any bass source. Beautifully clean reproduction of electric bass, kick drum, large auxiliary percussion, etc.


Been using my 2nd one live for 15yrs. Someone stole the 1st one off the stage at the end of a gig. Tried everything else that I could afford, including some that were considerably higher cost. Nothing I have tried beats it for live or recording. Have used it on just about every instrument. It has been dropped at least 20 times, has hardly any paint left on it, and still functions perfectly. Glad to see the mic mount has been upgraded. That was the only thing they could improve on it.
