901
High-quality pre-polarised condenser microphone with
half-cardioid pick-up pattern, especially suitable for use
with kick drums.
The extremely thin, high-strength diaphragm delivers a
very low bass response and fast transient signals.
Incidental rear noise is effectively rejected.
Features
y Frequency response tailored for kick drum miking
y Fast attack
y Very dry and precise low-bass response
y Extremely rugged sound inlet basket
y Rubber damping plate on base
y Gold-plated XLR connector
y Integrated pre-amplifier
Delivery includes

Commentary
Much resonance,
much attack
Position the
microphone at the
bottom of the kick
drum, approx.
10–20 cm from the
batter head.
Less attack: Turn
the microphone
away from where
the beater strikes.
The 901 is used
for picking up the
attack, the 902 for
picking up the
fundamental.
Combined with an
902 positioned at
the resonant head.
The lower microphone must be
phase-reversed to
avoid phasecancellation effects
due to the second
microphone being
on the other side of
the drumskin.
In order to prevent interference due to crosstalk between
adjacent sound sources, try to position the microphone so
that the interfering sound source is located in the angle
area of the highest cancellation of the microphone
(approx. 180°; see polar diagram).
