DESCRIPTION

The Sontronics DM-1B is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone originally designed for kick drum during a three-year project that also resulted in our DM-1S for snare and DM-1T for tom tom.

Developed with the help of top producers, recording engineers and drummers, all three microphones have become must-have tools for anyone serious about capturing that perfect drum sound, whether for live performance or in the studio.

Thanks to its incredible sensitivity and its ability to handle high sound pressure levels of up to 155dB, DM-1B delivers outstanding results on kick drum, capturing all the attack, resonance and energy like nothing you’ve heard before!

DM-1B also sounds stunning when used with all kinds of bass instruments, from bass guitar cabinets and double bass to tenor sax and tuba.
