Awesome Mic, no complaints!

This Mic will do it all, whether in the studio or live you won't be disappointed. Even if your Kick drum is lacking some punch, this mic will find it and then some!

The d-6 has disappointed me completly, after lots of good reveiws from almost everywere I looked, the d-6 simply deosn't do the job. the sound is "ok" but the output this thing gives is really low. I have to add thousands of plug ins to get the volume I want. MaybeI got a deffective mic, but the d-6 should be a perfect mic and mine was far from it. Even with the gain volumes really high it is still hard to get a good feed.

    Comments about Audix D-6 Sub Impulse Kick Microphone - Brushed Aluminum Special Edition:

    I recently bought a Audix D6, after trying out a friends D6 on the port side of my cajon drum. It captures the low frequencies well and leaves out the boomy mid bass that my budget bass drum mic would have. I then used the D6 through the 5 " hole of the front head on my 20" kick drum with a towel inside to get a tight ,full kick sound through my p.a. system.

      Comments about Audix D-6 Sub Impulse Kick Microphone - Brushed Aluminum Special Edition:

      This one mic is what made me go Audix exclusively. I've gone from AKG to Sennheiser and beyond. I've done a lot of sound for film and video. I know through experience what they can do and can't do for my drumming. I can afford any mic system many times over. I've settled for the Audix because they seem pretty much to me 'custom made for drums and percussion'. I run my 9-piece Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute on Audix D-1s on the smaller toms and snare, D-2s on the mid-size toms, D-4s on the floor toms and the D-6 on the Bass drum and another on the Gong drum. Each drum on a mic. I run two Hi-hats with an Audix AD-15 each, and two additional AD-15s as overheads. All mics run to a Soundcraft MFX-16 board. In my living room (yes, that's where I record) I pretty much record what I hear without EQing. A little de-essing on the snare and that's it! The roll-offs on the AD-15s are outstanding and the D-6 is killer. The D-6 is pretty much 'Plug and Play'. The SPL on Audix is the real deal! They can take the most brutal audio punishment and still sing gracefully another day. I've had other brands give up the ghost on less! I will even use a D-6 on an electric/acoustic bass guitar,Baritone or Bass Sax, it's that good. I used a D-1 on a trumpet and it was total cake. Don't waste your money on anything other than the D-6.

            I use all Audix Mic's on my kit D-6 kicks /D-4 floor tom /D-2 high toms.. The audience feels every beat and the sound personnel loves my mic set up and so do I.. Buy Audix you cant go wrong. Light weight / great pick-up / just bad to the bone.

                Comments about Audix D-6 Sub Impulse Kick Microphone - Brushed Aluminum Special Edition:

                Bought the Audix F6 and was disappointed. Returned the F6 and ordered the D6. Totally better mic for what I am doing. The D6 is killer on my 4X10 bass cabinet. Easy to place for great sound. I personally like what it can do when placed directly in front of one of the speakers. The F6 is probably a good mic but if you are looking for a killer mic for bass drum, bass cabinet miking go for the Audix D6. It is worth it and won't leave you wondering.......it is a great microphone !!! Great value.

                Comments about Audix D-6 Sub Impulse Kick Microphone - Brushed Aluminum Special Edition:

                This is a very versitle mic. You can use it to get a punchy kick in the chest sound or you can use it to broad deep bass sound that just helps compliment everything with a little or a lot of adjusting on the board. A little if the drum is tuned right or a bit more to bring it to life. Has an extremely high threshold for drummers that like to nail the kick. I am a frequent Audix customer when it comes to instrument mics. I have i5's as well as all my toms are miked with Audix. They are the people you want when getting mics for any instrument but especially drums. The D6 is one of the best additions you can make. Incredibly sturdy and more than gets the job done. If you want to hear the kick then this is where its at. Due to what this thing can do, the price is well worth it.

                  I am usually at the mercy of a venues engineer. Most for me lack experience. Having the D-6 has solved many a headache. Start with flat EQ and most of the time you are there. One trick Pony? maybe, but a very good trick it is.
