Hey, remember THIS post from early February?
Me neither but anyways, Sontronics is finally releasing these awesome new mics. I can’t wait to pick up a couple and throw down some drum tracks. Who’s up for some a mediocre cover of a classic song?
Yeah, I wasn’t too pumped about that either… What is radio coming to? Ruining all of our songs… Anyways I would bet my Imaginary girlfriend that Sontronics doesn’t support this either. So go buy some of these great LIFETIME WARRANTY mics.
Dorset-based Sontronics, who enjoyed recent success and critical acclaim
with the stunning SATURN multi-pattern condenser mic, has moved further
into application-specific miking with the release of three condenser
microphones designed specifically for drums: the DM-1T, DM-1S and DM-1B.
DM1T with mountThe *DM-1T*and *DM-1S*are small-diaphragm pencil-style
condenser mics *designed to work on tom *(DM-1T) *and snare*(DM-1S).
With a cardioid polar pattern and switchable -15dB pad, the
characteristics of each mic have been tailored to pick up those specific
nuances from the different drums. Each mic comes with a metal drum mount
and mic clip.
Meanwhile, the *DM-1B*is a large-diaphragm, end-fire condenser mic that
*can cope with up to 150dB*(with the -15dB pad switched in)and comes in
an aluminium flightcase. DM-1B is designed specifically for kick drum
but also gives impressive results on bass instruments and bass guitar
The mics are available to buy individually, allowing producers to build
up their set with extra tom or bass mics, as suits their specific needs,
and perhaps throwing in a Sontronics STC-1S or a pair of ORPHEUS as the
ideal overheads, as their budget allows.
The DM-1T, DM-1S and DM-1B are all *covered by SONTRONICS’ Lifetime
Warranty*and come with a *free download of Toontrack’s EZdrummer Lite*.
All three microphones are available now from UK distributor Time+Space
and authorised dealers.
DM-1T and DM-1S: £119.99. EUR300**each*
*DM-1B: £299.99. EUR300*
