Specially Configured for the Snare

The Sontronics DM-1S has been designed to specially detect the sounds of the snare, right down to the rattle, the attack, the decay and so on. This mic pairs well the DM-1T, designed for Toms, as they both slightly different frequency responses to get excellent results from each of the drums.

Amazing SPL Threshold

The DM-1S small diaphragm condenser microphone has a -10dB pad switch, allowing a max SPL of 135dB. Sontronics mics are all designed to work well live and in the studio.

Tested by Pros

Various session drummers, live musicians and producers, including Flood (U2, Killers, Arctic Monkeys) and Mark Rankin (Friendly Fires, Florence & The Machine) have tested the Sontronics DM-1S.

Reviews

"For the new Friendly Fires album we had the DM-1S and another mic (that cost ten times more) on snare. We had to keep checking the patching 'cos we thought the DM-1S was the £1000 mic. Incredible." - Mark Rankin, recording & mix engineer/producer (Florence & the Machine, Plan B, Adele, Friendly Fires)
