The DP7 professional drum microphone pack represents an outstanding combination of seven microphones designed to meet the demands of today’s professional drummer, both on the stage and in the studio.

Included in the DP7 drum microphone package is the D6, Audix’s flagship kick drum microphone, two – D2 dynamic drum microphones for rack toms, one D4 for floor tom, the i5 for snare, and a pair of ADX51 studio condenser microphones for overhead miking. Also included are four D-Vice rim mount clips for the snare and tom microphones, and three heavy-duty tension fit microphone clips for the other three microphones. Everything is conveniently packaged in a foam-lined aluminum road case for safekeeping when the microphones are not in use.


  • Professional set of 7 drum mics for stage or studio
  • ADX51 condensers for overheads add spacial dimension
  • Recognized industry-wide for exceptional performance and consistency

The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare are must-haves 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 groove. The D2 and D4 are industry
standards for toms and floor toms. Being high SPL dynamic microphones, the D6,
i5, D2 and D4 excel at “close miking”. This miking technique is required in order to
capture the attack and percussive sound of the drum. By having the mic close to the
source of the sound, it helps to isolate and control the sound of each drum.


Supporting the idea that “less is more”, many engineers 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, 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.


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 a stereo image
of the entire kit from overhead. 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 D2 and
D4 will pick up the attack and overtones of the toms, and the ADX51 overheads will
pick up the hi-hat, cymbals and the ambience of the entire kit. With the DP7, drums
will maintain their sound integrity and critical presence, regardless of the size of the
room and PA system.
