The best way to mic a drum kit is with a combination of specialized dynamic and condenser microphones. The six microphones in the Apex-DP2 Drum Pack have been specifically selected to provide the most complete and comprehensive miking system for a standard 5-piece drum set. The Apex-DP2 is also the ideal starting point for building a microphone package for an extended drum kit.
The popular Apex125 and Apex126 microphones handle the vital kick and snare drums respectively. Ideally suited to handling the high SPL and extended low frequencies that most bass drums can produce, the Apex125's element is protected in a solid zinc die-cast outer casing and can easily handle 165dB SPL at the input.
Made of a rugged zinc die-cast casing to protect the mic's elements from the occasional stick hit that is inevitable over a drumhead, the Apex126 is the perfect blend of performance and toughness.
A cardioid polar pattern offers maximum rejection 180 degrees off axis, handling high SPL with a minimum of cross talk in the drum mix. The three Apex165 microphones included in the Apex-DP2 pack handle the high SPL you would expect when close miking a tom. Their miniature design comes complete with shockmount assembly and gooseneck clamp, perfect for safe attachment to any drum rim without damaging or breaking the chrome or lacquer.
It's unobtrusive, easy to attach to any instrument and almost impossible to accidentally dislodge, even during enthusiastic live performances.
The final microphone that makes up the Apex-DP2 is a single Apex190 stubby pencil condenser cardioid microphone. Ideal for use as an overhead mic over the full drum kit, or for close miking on hi-hats or splash cymbals.
The six individual microphones in the Apex-DP2 are shipped in a molded carrying case with the specialized clips for use on and around the drum set.
