The B-Band UKKO-T single tom drum contact mic system is a remarkable way to capture the true tonality of your tom consistently, conveniently, and with extreme isolation. This system consists of two important components: the UKKO DMT preamp, built with high-quality class-A electronics, and the UKKO DST2 Contact mic for superb tone. This system will work with any size tom, and gives you high-resolution sound, and easy setup!
This mic system was designed to be able to blend-in visually with the drum kit. That is why B-Band designed the DMT preamp to be chrome colored to match most drum hardware. It is an extremely lightweight system that does not add any noticeable weight to the drum, or get in the way while performing like most other drum mic systems. It also very robust and durable, and will endure rigorous touring.
Setting up and tearing down have never been this easy. The DST2 has an adhesive back that mounts easily and discreetly on the inside of the drum shell near the batter head. The DST2 lead wire is fed through the drum air hole to the DMT preamp. The preamp comes with two different mounting options: mounting at the air hole outside of the drum, or a rim clamp mounting. The air hole mounting option was specially designed to not interrupt the flow of air as the drum breathes. Being as the DMT preamp is so small in size, there is no need to remove it to put the drum in its case, leave it on and be ready for the next gig or studio session.
Inside the DMT preamp there are two mini switches that contour the sound for a choice of tone. One switch controls a -6dB mid cut at 1 kHz and the other is for a +6dB high boost at 5kHz.

Comments about B-Band UKKO-T Single Tom Drum Contact Mic:
I have had these mics for two days, one for each one of my toms 8", 10", 12", 16". The installation was easy enough to get a grasp of. The construction of the pre amp is quite solid, and once attached to the drum, fits in nicely. I can not comment yet on durability, but I see no reason to assume they will be breaking on me. Now onto sound. The mics will pick up any velocity stroke clearly. Bleed is extremely minimal from adjacent drums, much less than conventional mics. After having used and heard many types of drum microphones, these mics can compete when it comes to quality of sound. When recorded and played back, the recording seemed to be a 1:1 representation of how the drum sounds to my ear when hit. I could not ask for any better. Tune your drums properly, with an average or above kit, and these mics will do you well.
