Overview

The Audix f6 Fusion Series bass frequency microphone is purpose-built for kick drums and other low-frequency instruments, including large toms, and bass cabinets. The Audix f6 drum mic is lightweight, compact, and easy to position. With a wide frequency response of 40Hz-16kHz and the ability to handle sound pressure levels of 140dB, the f6 is an excellent choice for miking instruments requiring extended low frequency reproduction.

Featuring the same depth and "no-EQ-necessary" performance as the Audix D6, the f6 boasts a little more midrange punch, also making it suitable for more aggressive styles of music, such as hard rock and punk. Another great benefit of Audix' purpose-built mics is the ease of placement-they sound great no matter where you place them (within reason), so a "walking" kick drum, or active performers bumping the mic is rarely a problem.


The Audix f6 has a hypercardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control, and an LM (Low Mass) Type A diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction. It employs a transformerless design for transparent reproduction, while its low-impedance, balanced output provides interference-free performance-even with long cable runs. It's roadworthy construction includes a precision-cast zinc alloy body, black coat finish, laser-etched model and serial number, steel mesh grill, gold XLR connector and a tension-fit heavy duty nylon mic clip.

User tips:
The f6 is designed with low output in order to compensate for instruments having very high sound pressure levels. For kick drums, start with the mic inside the middle of the drum positioned slightly off-center, pointed towards the beater. For more attack, and less bass boom, move the mic closer to the beater. For less attack and more bass, move the mic further away from the beater. For kick drums without a hole in front head, place the f6 a few inches from the head for a large dynamic sound. For toms, position the mic 2 inches from the head and point towards the center of the drum. For bass cabinets, position the mic 90 to the grille cloth and 1 - 2 inches inside the edge of the speaker.

Comments about Audix F6 Kick Drum & Bass Frequencies Microphone:

ok i got this to record my drum set for my bands album but it didnt have the power for low bass sounds. i even cranked the bass on the mixer and then the recording software we use and it still sounded like it wasnt low enough. like i guess if you want to record jazz maby it would be good but deffinetly not for metal.

    Good punchy sound. Mic has a pre equalized scoop that removes the boom and creates a clean whack with a clear attack.

        This mic has a good solid build quality. The sound via a ported bass, is tight and articulate with good definition while maintaining a full bass drum sound without boominess.
