Providing a natural, full stereo sound of your drum or percussion kit starts with having great overhead microphones. Whether you isolate areas of your kit with localized microphones or capture a true stereo sound with a stereo-matched X-Y approach, we have the microphones to help you capture amazing, natural sound from your entire drum kit.
Kick Drum Microphones
The right kick drum microphone can add punch to your mix and shape the tone of the attack to suit any style of music, setting the foundation for your groove.
Snare Drum Microphones
The defining aspect of your drum mix is almost always the sound you get from your snare drum. Get that tight crack that punches through the mix and sets the tone for the rest of the band, or keep your snare tuned lower with a big, fat, warm sound. Regardless of the signature tone of your snare drum, you’ll need the right mic to pick that sound up and replicate it in your mix.
The hi-hat is often the glue of the kit as it works with the snare mic to drive the rhythm and pace of the music. It is important that you get the right mic, and our team can help you choose the best condenser microphone to pick up a wide range of hi-hat sound, or a dynamic microphone to really focus in on that hi-hat.
Adding a microphone to your toms is a great way to bring more warmth and depth to the sound of your drum kit.
