    Audix D2

    Good customers service and fast shipping. Will look forward to do business with you again.

    Great frequency response

    Great microphone. Does what it's supposed to do. I use it on a 12 inch rack tom with a boom mic stand, and I get a really good round punchy sound out of it.

    Audix d2 is a great rack tom Mick.

    I got this for live shows, and does the job well,much easier to work with than the senn.421 that I now keep in our studio to record with.

    Great affordable drum mic

    I have been using Audix Drum mics and the D2 for over 10 years. Like Shure dynamic mics, they are high quality, road tough and accurate. When I say "accurate", I find that they are very good at reproducing the drum's natural sound without any coloration. I am pretty much using the D2 for my 8x12 rack tom or occasionally on djembes or congas. It's ok on larger diameter toms, but better on higher frequencey drums. It's also good on guitar cabs in combination with a Royer 121. While the D2 is primarily intended for live sound reinforcement, I have had good success recording with it to Logic with a Focusrite pre amp. As I said earlier, I have been using Audix mics for over 10 years and have never had an issue or failure. For the quality, sound and price point, you can't go wrong with the D2

    One Trick Pony?

    First things first, this is not a utility mic like a 57 or 421 or something like that. This mic has one job and it does that job well. Can you use it on things other than toms, sure you can, will it perform well.... probably not. The mic is built to handle somewhat higher SPL's and has a tailored response to work with rack toms (doesn't do bad on a floor tom, but wouldn't be a go to mic for that application, audix makes a mic for that purpose as well). Another plus for this mic is it's size. its compact enough that you can easily fit it where it needs to go without some large body sticking up and then an xlr connection housing sticking up even further. (anyone that's mic'd a tom with a 57 or 421 knows what this means) Especially useful for drummers that keep their cymbals low over the toms.

    You know you don't want too high of a response on any percussive instrument. The D2 adds body and warmth two my congas etc. This makes me shave off some of those natural low frequencies and adding a tweek of good highs or high-mids. This mic makes me take off instead of adding to much EQ which can possibly spoil a mix.
