The 8thstreet Drum Pack 2 includes 3 Sennheiser 604 mics with clips and pouches, and 1 Audix D6 mic. Sennheiser E-604 Mics Space saving, compact drum and brass microphone. Ideal for low visibility, close miking techniques. The frequency response and cardioid pick-up pattern are optimised for drum sets and other percussion instrument miking, whilst also producing exceptional results on all forms of brass and woodwind. An integral stand mount screws directly onto mic stands and included clip attaches mic to rim of drum.
Very high sound pressure level handling, in excess of 160dB, is combined with a balanced, clear, low distortion signal similar to a high-end studio condensor microphone. Lightweight voice coil provides extended high frequency and rapid transient response. A tough reinforced glass fibre body takes the knocks and shocks and suppresses impact noise.

Audix D6 Mic In classic Audix style, the D6 will not disappoint anyone looking for a huge, clean, undistorted kick drum sound. The D6 is about twice the size of the normal D series microphone, and yet it is extremely easy to use and position. Utilizing the same low profile mounting clip as the D series mics, the D6 will work with the Dvice and D-flex clips, as well as a variety of other popular clips on the market.
The D6 has a frequency response of 30 Hz - 15 kHz and is characterized with a cardioid pick-up pattern. The D6 is designed to sound good in any position and it is not dependent on finding the "sweet spot" of the drum. The D6 capsule features the same legendary VLM technology that has made the D series percussion and instrument microphones very popular for today’s live stages and recording studios.
Audix Percussive Arts Specialist, Rob Schnell, says, "Our customers have been asking for a large format kick drum mic for some time now, and it’s no secret that we’ve been working on the D6. When we sent the prototypes out to artists and engineers, nobody wanted to give them back! The end result is a conveniently sized mic with the big sound that drummers want. With the addition of the D6, the D series is now a complete solution for all professional drum-related miking."
The D6 includes a cordura pouch and nylon mic stand adapter.
Applications for the D6 are the kick drum and any other instrument requiring precise low frequency reproduction.
