Description

The CDMK4 4-Mic Drum Microphone Kit from Avantone is a 4-piece drum-microphone kit makes it easy to capture kick drum, snare drum, and three toms, using drum-specific, 2nd-Generation Avantone dynamic mics. The CDMK4 is equally at home on stage or in the studio.

The included MONDO kick drum mic has an aggressive frequency contour, handles 145 dB SPL, and is equipped with an internal shockmount assembly for the capsule, which minimizes the vibrations that cause rumble.

For the snare, you get the ADM snare drum mic, which gives you similar voicing to the “industry standard” snare mic, but with better lows and an extended high-end. The ADM is also an excellent choice for high toms, bongos, congas, guitar cabinets, and many other miking chores.

For the toms, the CDMK4 provides two ATOM tom microphones. These feature oversized capsules designed for capturing hefty lows and a penetrating attack. The mic has an internal shockmount assembly for the capsule, which helps prevent the vibrations that cause rumble. The ATOM is also recommended for large congas, djembe, and bass-amp cabinets.

The kit also includes 3 PK-1 PRO-KLAMP drum mic mounts, which take the place of bulky mic stands by making it possible to attach the mics directly to the snare and tom rims. The PK-1s help reduce unwanted vibration, and make positioning the mics a snap. All four mics come with SSM shockmounts, which help decouple the mics from unwanted low-frequency transfer and vibration.

All the mics in this kit feature die-cast zinc bodies, and have no plastic parts to break. The mics come in a custom, vintage-tweed case that features metal corners, locking latches, a high-density foam tray, a plush lining, and a faux-alligator trim exterior. The interior foam can be lifted out to provide additional storage space for cables and other accessories.

Avantone Pro Mondo Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone

The MONDO Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone from Avantone is a ruggedly designed kick drum microphone with an elegant finish that is also well suited for bass cabinets and other low-frequency signal capturing. The MONDO delivers aggressive frequency contouring and accentuates bass frequencies, leaving engineers to make very little EQ adjustments in both live sound reinforcement and recording applications alike. The dynamic capsule is capable of handling high SPL before distortion and is internally shockmounted for a high degree of resistance against structure-born noise. Its elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish features nickel trim, rugged black grill and absolutely no breakable plastic components. The microphone includes a shockmount (SSM) and rugged padded carrying case.

  • Designed for live clubs and concerts, as well as serious studio recording projects
  • Very aggressive frequency contour that sounds huge right out of the box, so most engineers will find little need for EQ
  • Die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly
  • Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and a black grill assembly
  • All components are designed and manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability
  • Internal shockmounting on the capsule assembly to prevent the transmission of unwanted “rumble” from physical vibrations

Avantone Pro ADM Dynamic Snare Drum Microphone

A shockmount (SSM) and rugged padded carrying case are also included.

  • Delivers the familiar sound of industry standard snare microphones, with enhanced low-end and smoother, extended top-end
  • Die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly and no plastic parts to break
