Get the Low-Down Lows from Your Kick Drum!

The Yamaha SKRM-100 SubKick will transform the sound of your kick drums! This unique sub-bass transducer also works with other bass instruments.

Yamaha SKRM-100 SubKick at a Glance:
  • 6.5" speaker/diaphragm picks up low end that normal mics can't
  • Shock mounted in birch/mahogany shell with specially designed stand
  • Offers many tonal options for kick drum miking
  • Effective in a variety of low-frequency miking situations

Picks up low end that normal mics can't
The idea behind the SubKick is ingeniously simple. Yamaha took a 6.5" speaker, mounted it in a 10" drum shell and reverse-wired it to an XLR jack to convert the speaker diaphragm into a microphone diaphragm. This huge diaphragm allows the SubKick to pick up the low end that a normal microphone can't. And as a dynamic microphone it can handle extremely high SPLs.

Shock mounted in birch/mahogany shell with specially designed stand
Mounting the SubKick speaker into a drum shell focuses the sound to direct the signal into the diaphragm. It also protects the SubKick transducer from mechanical noise and damage. Plus, using a drum shell makes the SubKick easy to set up on the road or in the studio, and it looks great with any drum kit. The SubKick includes a tom mounting bracket attached directly to the shell. This mounts to a CL-940 ball clamp that slides into the base of a double braced Yamaha 800 series snare stand.

Offers many tonal options for kick drum miking
Placement and proximity have an effect on the sound captured by the SubKick system, so experiment with these variables to create a variety of tonal possibilities. Place the SubKick in front of the head hole or at varying distances from the head itself to produce variations in sound quality, volume and timbre. The SubKick offers great potential in both live performance and recording.

Effective in a variety of low-frequency miking situations
The design of the SubKick and the flexibility of the stand allows you to use it for a variety of applications in live or studio situations. Try the SubKick in conjunction with an internal microphone on bass drums and floor toms, djembe, bass guitar cabinets, pianos and more - your imagination is the only limitation!

Yamaha SKRM-100 SubKick Features:
  • Unique sub-bass transducer for kick drums, floor toms, low percussion, bass guitars and more
  • Dynamic microphone handles high SPLs onstage or in studio
  • Shock mounting in drum shell protects transducer and looks great onstage
  • Includes mounting clamp and Yamaha stand for easy placement
Let the Yamaha SubKick capture the REAL lows of your kick drum!
