CLOSE MIKING
The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare are considered 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 also industry standards for toms and floor toms. Being high SPL
dynamic microphones, the i5, D2, D4 and D6 excel at “close miking”. These four
microphones, in conjunction with this miking technique, are guaranteed to capture
the attack and percussion sound of each drum. Also, by having the mic close to the
source of the sound, it helps to isolate and control the sound of each drum. The DP5A
allows for total control of your drum sound on stage or in the studio.

USER TIPS
D6 - Kick Drum: To position the D6, a good starting point is a few inches
inside the port of the front head with the mic pointing off-center and
not directly at the beater. For more attack, move the mic closer towards
the beater. For more bass, pull the mic farther away from the beater. The
STANDKD is a great accessory to help achieve the perfect position for the D6.
i5 - Snare: A good starting point is two inches above the rim with the mic
pointing towards the center of the head. For more “rim” sound, pull the mic
back closer to the rim. For more resonance and depth of field, pull the mic
further away from the head. The trick is to find the right balance between
resonance and attack while still controlling bleed from the other drums.
D2 / D4 - Floor Toms: Place the mic about two inches above the head and
point the mic across the head towards the center of the drum. This is the
best position to capture the fundamental resonance and decay of the drum
with minimal ring.
Note that the DCLAMP or DFLEX mounts are available in order to attach the
mics to hand percussion instruments or non-conventional rims.
