Dual-Element Dynamic Bass Drum Microphone
KickTone™ is a coaxial dynamic microphone optimized to reproduce the full range of frequencies generated in the resonant chamber of a bass drum. Lower frequencies are captured by a specially-manufactured 5.25″ hemp diaphragm that’s stiff and lightweight, providing excellent damping characteristics. The coaxial element captures mid and upper-range frequencies, especially the snap of the beater hitting the head. The result is a punchy, well-defined sound that instantly grabs the listener’s attention—all from a single, easy-to-setup-and-use unit.
For added convenience, the KickTone can be mounted directly to a KickPort™ bass drum enhancer. Just slide the KickTone over the KickPort flange and you’re ready to go! The calibrated vents on the KickPort allow air to move freely, so the feel of your beater remains unchanged. No KickPort? No problem! A built-in swivel adapter allows the KickTone to be stand-mounted as well.
