Made for Recording Kick Drums

The Sontronics DM-1B is a large-diaphragm, end-fire condenser microphone. It has been designed specifically to capture and reproduce the various characteristics of a kick drum. So whether that's the beater click, the heavy thump, the boomy decay and so on, this microphone gives great kick drum micing.

A Sturdy Microphone

The DM-1B possesses a switchable -15dB pad, which allows the microphone to take up to a whopping 155dB. The sturdy build of this microphone and its aluminium flightcase means you can take it to the live stage as well as the studio.

Tested by Pros and Great for Bass Instruments!

While the DM-1B is ideal for kick drums, it also gives great results for other bass instruments, especially bass guitar cabs. Flood, Alan Moulder and Mark Rankin have tested the DM-1B, along with various session drummers, live musicians and producers.

"I used Sontronics drum mics with Flood and Assault & Battery where we compared them to mics costing significantly more. We were blow away by how good they sounded." - Mark Rankin, recording & mix engineer/producer (Florence & the Machine, Plan B, Adele, Friendly Fires)
