The DPQUAD pack consists of four drum microphones grouped together to microphone a full drum kit. This arrangement employs a left overhead microphone to cover hi-hat, cymbals, and rack toms, and a right overhead microphone to capture the floor tom and ride cymbal. Individual snare and kick microphones complete the essential punch needed for a good drum mix. All microphones, clips, and accessories are packed in a durable aluminum carrying case.

  • A professional set of 4 drum microphones for stage or studio
  • Designed to capture the essence of a full kit with the least number of microphones
  • Combines close-miking technique for kick and snare with overhead ambient microphone placement

Close Miking: The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare are considered musthaves for every drummer. 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 foundation. 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 and control the sound of each drum.

Overhead (ambient) Miking: Supporting the idea that “less is more”, there are many
engineers who will use just two overhead mics to capture the natural sound of the
complete drum kit. With two overhead mics, positioned correctly, it is absolutely true
that you can capture the transients, tonality and balance of the kit in a completely
phase-coherent manner. The ADX51, which is a pre-polarized condenser microphone
with a 14mm gold sputtered diaphragm, is designed with overhead applications in
mind. Due to its cardioid pickup pattern, high sensitivity and slim pencil design, the
two ADX51 mics can be easily positioned overhead to provide a nice stereo image of
the entire drum kit.

The Blend: With contemporary music and the volumes typically generated on
stage, it is more practical and effective to create a blended effect of close miking
and overhead miking – the exact intent of the DPQUAD. The D6 will help provide
the earthshaking lows and the attack of the kick; the i5 will reinforce the depth and
crack of the snare; the overheads will pick up the high-hat, tom fills, cymbals and
the ambiance of the entire kit. With the DPQUAD, drums will maintain their sound
integrity and critical presence, regardless of the size of the room and PA system.
