Audix DP Series QUAD Percussion Microphone Set
Audix DP Series QUAD Percussion Microphone Set
When it comes to drum and percussion microphones, Audix is the industry leader. These high precision instrument microphones are designed to fill the specific needs of artists and engineers for both studio and live applications.

The Audix DP Series QUAD pack is the simplest and most effective combination of microphones that will allow you to capture the depth and imaging of a full drum kit. With kick, snare and two overheads, the QUAD incorporates the best of two miking techniques: close miking and overhead (ambient) miking.

Close Miking:
  • The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare are considered the two microphones every drummer must have. The kick and snare are considered the core of any drum kit and the foundation for every groove. Close miking insures that they will be captured in the mix. If either the kick or the snare is unable to be heard, there is simply no groove.


Being high SPL dynamic microphones, the D6 and i5 excel at close miking. This miking technique is required in order to capture the attack and percussive sound of the drum. Also, by having the mic close to the source of the sound, it helps to isolate the sound of each drum and separate it from the rest of the kit.
