The D2 drum mic's tuned frequency response gives you the punch, clarity, and warmth you need for percussion without sounding muddy or boomy. The proprietary VLMTM (Very Low Mass) capsule technology delivers superior impulse response to more accurately capture every detail in your music. The included DVICE mount lets you squeeze these mics into tight spaces, eliminating the need for bulky mic stands.

Designed, machined, assembled, and tested by Audix in the USA.

The D2 has an extremely tight hypercardioid pick-up pattern in order to help
eliminate sound from other instruments on stage from “bleeding” into the
microphone. For this reason, the D2 is exceptionally effective in capturing the
sound of each component of a drum or percussion kit.
Drums & hand percussion:
As a general rule, the bottom of the D2 grill should
be 1-2 inches above the head of the drum and pointed towards the center. For
more “ring” pull the mic back towards the rim. For less ring and more overtones,
position the mic 1-2 inches inside the ring. For more attack, place the mic very
close to the head and for more overtones and decay move the mic further away
from the head.
Guitar cabinets:
The D2 can be placed within 1-2 inches of the grill cover at a
90 degree angle pointing directly at the speaker. If the mic is placed closer to the
edge of the speaker, you will minimize the higher frequencies and get a warmer,
fatter tone. To capture more highs, move the mic closer towards the center of
the speaker.
Place the mic within 1-2 inches of the bell, especially when on a stage
with drums, bass, guitar, etc. For jazz, classical, and music where the stage
volume is lower, the mic can be placed further away for a richer, fuller sound.
