Your New Go-to Kick Mic? Audix f6

Would you want to be a kick drum mic? Getting the sense knocked out of you every couple of seconds is cruel and unusual punishment. Which is why great bass drum mics are a breed apart. Take the Audix f6, for instance. It's got massive 140dB SPL mojo to deal with heavy-footed rhythm keepers, and you can precisely focus its hypercardioid pickup pattern to get the perfect amount of click. And what's good for punchy, robust kick is also ideal for tympani, floor tom, and your bassists ginormous SVT cab. Built road-tough in the U.S. with a precision-cast zinc alloy body and sexified black coat finish, the f6 is at home onstage or in the studio. Next time you've got a kick to mic, give the Audix f6 a try. You'll be seriously impressed.

Audix has been a leader in "purpose-built" mic design, and the f6 has major aggressiveness going on in its frequency response curve. The advantage to you, is that you can place an f6 in the bass drum, lift the fader, and press record. Any additional EQ you do is gravy. Check it out - the Audix f6 might well become your new go-to kick mic.

Very Satisfied!

I am using this to mic up a Cajon. I expected it to perform well at the soundhole of the box, and it does- but better than anticipated. It is full without adding any boom, and does a surprisingly good job of reproducing the "snap" or the snare sounds as well- both at the soundhole as well as in front of the Cajon. Im sure this would be a great kick mic, and based on its characteristics I think it'd be a monster on a bass cabinet. Build quality seems good. No complaints here!

Great Kick Drum Mic

I've only used this so far on kick and its great. Compared with the D6 its tone is different but basically has that clear, non-boomy and punchy sound you'd get fro the 6. @ the price, its a good deal.
