The D6 is an American-made instrument microphone designed for live and studio performance. Characterized with a cardioid pick-up pattern and a frequency response of 30 Hz-15 kHz, the D6 instrument mic is an ideal choice for kick drum, bass cabs, and other instruments requiring low frequency reproduction.
The D6 boasts a VLM (Very Low Mass) diaphragm to react quickly to the
attack of the beater, and the 30Hz-15kHz frequency response sports big
bumps right where you need it for earth-shaking lows without
sacrificing the attack. For other low-frequency instruments such as
bass, the D6 fares equally well.

The Audix mic comes in a transformerless design, low impedance, and a balanced output allows interference free performance even with long cable runs. The D6 mic, a one-piece body precision machined from solid aluminum, consists of a durable hard coat anodized finish.
Tuned specifically for kick drum and low-frequency instruments :
The D6 is designed specifically to tackle kick drums and other low-frequency instruments. There is 14dB of boost at 60 Hz, 15dB between 4 and 5K, and 17db between 10 and 12k. The tailored response of this microphone makes it ideal for use of 22" bass drums. The D6 capsule features the same legendary VLM technology that has made the D series percussion and instrument microphones very popular for today's live stages and recording studios. The VLM diaphragm ensures that the mic responds very quickly to transients, ensuring the attack isn't lost.
Sounds good no matter where you place it :
Drums are one of the hardest instruments to record, especially when trying to replicate the sound of a previous recording. The D6 is designed to sound good in any position and it is not dependent on finding the "sweet spot" of the drum. This is great since you know that time after time, the kick will sound great!
Includes Audix D6 mic clip and zippered carrying pouch.
