Everyone has different preferences, and we hope our frank reviews will make your decision easier. First, we will take a look at the Audix D6 Dynamic. The Audix top quality dynamic mic comes in a stylish black design that will make you look like a professional from the get-go. It works at its best when you place it near floor toms, a kick drum or bass cabs. Not only that, but it can also handle very high sound pressure levels without screeching or distorting them; something common to other cheaply made drum mics on the market.
Next up is the Beyerdynamic TG-D58C. Beyerdynamic’s product is also a very affordable option that will provide you with quality sound. This is one of the mics that actually comes with a gooseneck included in the price already. The gooseneck is available to be either flexible or angled and it’s compact while also possessing a horizontal swivel point. It has a wide transmission range and comes with a clamp so that you can set it up wherever you desire on your drum kit!
Audix tests all of their microphones before they ship them out onto the shelves and you can be sure that the D6 is no exception. You will only experience high-quality sounds with clear playback. The diaphragm also gives a fantastic transient response for whenever you will be quickly hitting the kick or snare drums and will only give you the best quality recordings. It isn’t picky about where you should place it and improves kick drum sounds significantly.
It’s a very small drum mic that does a fantastic job and works like a charm. One of its new features is the expanded frequency range that allows it to capture more sounds than Beyerdynamic’s previous mics. You can clip this little portable to any drum rim you desire and get quality results with just one product.
