Audix DP ELITE8 Deluxe Mic Package

The ultimate combination of 8 microphones needed to mike up a 5 piece drum kit on stage or in the studio
MFR# DPELITE8

Product Description

The Audix DP ELITE 8 drum pack is a premium ensemble of microphones designed to mic afive-piece kit with accuracy and fine control. Kick, snare, rack toms and floor tom micsfeature Audix VLMTM capsule technology for natural and precise sound reproduction inhigh SPL applications. A dedicated hi-hat mic and overhead cymbal mics capturecomplex timbres and wide dynamic ranges. Included are DVICE rim mounts eliminatingthe need for bulky mic stands.

Close Miking

The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare are considered must-haves for everydrummer. The kick and snare are considered the core of any drum kit and thefoundation for every groove. Close miking insures that they will be captured in themix. If either the kick or the snare is unable to be heard, there is simply no groove.Being high SPL dynamic microphones, the D6 and i5 excel at “close miking”. This mikingtechnique is required in order to capture the attack and percussive sound of thedrum. By having the mic close to the source of the sound, it helps to isolate and controlthe sound of each drum.

Overhead Miking (Ambient)

Supporting the idea that “less is more”, many engineers will use just two overheadmics to capture the natural sound of the complete drum kit. With two overheadmics, positioned correctly, it is absolutely true that you can capture the transients,tonality and balance of the kit in a completely phase-coherent manner. The SCX1condenser microphone with a 21mm gold sputtered diaphragm, is designed withoverhead applications in mind. Due to its cardioid pickup pattern, high sensitivityand pencil design, the two SCX1 mics can be easily positioned overhead to provide anice stereo image of the entire drum kit.

The Blend

With contemporary music and with the volumes typically generated on stage, it ismore practical and effective to create a blended effect of close miking and stereoimage of the entire kit from overhead. The D6 will help provide the earthshaking lowsand the attack of the kick; the i5 will reinforce the depth and crack of the snare; theD2 and D4 capture the attack and decay of rack and floor toms; the SCX1HC is thequinessential microphone for hi-hat. With the SCX1 for overheads, drums will maintaintheir sound integrity and critical presence for both stage and studio regardless of thesize of the room or PA system.

  • Professional set of 8 drum mics for stage or studio

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
