D6 Mic with Stand-KD
Audix Corporation, the industry leader in drum and percussion microphones, proudly introduces the latest addition to the D series of professional instrument microphones, the D6.
In classic Audix style, the D6 will not disappoint anyone looking for a huge, clean, undistorted kick drum sound. The D6 is about twice the size of the normal D series microphone, and yet it is extremely easy to use and position. Utilizing the same low profile mounting clip as the D series mics, the D6 will work with the Dvice and D-flex clips, as well as a variety of other popular clips on the market.
The D6 has a frequency response of 30 Hz - 15 kHz and is characterized with a cardioid pick-up pattern. The D6 is designed to sound good in any position and it is not dependent on finding the "sweet spot" of the drum. The D6 capsule features the same legendary VLM technology that has made the D series percussion and instrument microphones very popular for today's live stages and recording studios.
The D6 is an American-made instrument microphone designed for live and studio performance. Characterized with a cardioid pick-up pattern and a frequency response of 30 Hz-15 kHz, the D6 is an ideal choice for kick drum, bass cabs, and other instruments requiring low frequency reproduction. Transformerless design, low impedance , and balanced output allow interferencefree performance even with long cable runs. The D6, a one-piece body precision machined from solid aluminum, consistsof a durable hard coat anodized finish.

Operation and Maintenance:
The D6 is a durable dynamic microphone precision machined from a solid block of aluminum. However, the capsule is highly sensitive and the microphone should be handled with care. Avoid extreme temperatures wherever possible. Moisture can adversely affect the sound and performance of your microphone. When not in use, please store in the pouch provided.
The D6 is an excellent recording microphone for high SPL instruments requiring accurate imaging, especially in the lower frequency range. Intended mainly for use with kick drums, the D6 also excels on other instruments including floor toms, cajons, and bass cabinets, where full bodied warmth and extended low end are required to achieve the desired sound. The cardioid pick-up pattern allows the mic to be less placement sensitive and not dependent on finding the instrument’s “sweet spot.” The D6 is also able to handle extremely high sound pressure levels which allows for very close miking without distortion.
The frequency response of the D6 is tailored for optimum use in a kick drum. The D6 is highly sensitive between 80Hz and 120Hz, has a low end extension well below 40Hz, has a slope in the midrange and a boost in the high frequencies. The result of this combination means that the D6 will provide plenty of bass boom while still maintaining sonic clarity and attack. These results can be achieved on any size sound system withouthaving to add EQ or pad the sensitivity.
