Take Back Artistic Control of Your Kick

The Miktek PM11 Kick Drum Mic gives you back artistic control. Over the past decade, the trend in kick drum mics has favored pre-equalized, purpose-built mics: crack the fader and voila: instant kick drum mojo. But what if you want your bass drum to sound like, well, the drum - rather than the mic? Here's where the PM11 comes into play. It is indeed purpose-built for kick, so it's tough-as-nails and has mountains of meat, but it's not so pre-EQ'd that every bass drum sounds the same through it. It's also great on bass cabs and other bass-intensive sources. You do get tons of low end and excellent definition, however the Miktek PM11 lets you - the engineer - shape the sound.

  • Great-sounding kick drum mic
  • Tough-as-nails, with mountains of meat

Uncolored Sonic Power

This is it. The best sounding kick mic ever! It has everything.....very fast transient energy and wide flat response with a very present sub-sonic push. Beater sound is so nice......but yet natural and not clicky and fake or cheap sounding. Plug it up then record with flat EQ......this amazing microphone sounds three times better than anything else out there period. Acoustic masterpiece. 11 on a scale of 1 to 10

New Favorite!

I never paid much attention to the miktek name but was persuaded to try the drum mic pack. I have tried just about every kcal drum mic out there and instantly fell in love with the pm11. Nice snap and a huge thump. What more could you ask for! I highly recommend the entire drum mic kit. The pm10 on snare and toms is to die for! My absolute new favorites!

Miktek pm11 sings!!

I was in need of a great vocal mic and started reading about Miktek. Well, setting up a new room, you look around and start thinking about your weak points. ( the ones you never discuss) Mine was kik drum punch. I've been looking for a mic that delivered all the warmth and chest pounding wooomf but also had a snappy top end to compete with the snares presence. 1 session with the PM11 and I was smiling...It is the one..

Great attack, great tone for rock.

I've used D112s, Beta 52s, an RE-20, etc on kick. I recently picked up the set of one of these plus 4 PM10s and used them all for Kick and Toms on a rock recording in the studio. The PM11 had immediate, tight attack, but also still had nice low information in the signal as well. I feel like it is just a nice fit for what most people do to kick drums in modern day rock. It gives you the bright attack, and the punchy low, with basically no EQ moves at all if you find the right position for it. I basically set it in place one time and fell in love with it right off the bat. It was a Tama kit with a resonant head on the kick. I put the mic in through the hole, about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom, right in the middle depth, pointed right at where the beater was hitting. Bingo. Perfect for what I was going for.
