  • Overview


    The MB/Dk5 Drum Pack includes a core selection of five microphones specifically engineered for drum applications. The four included MB 5k snare/tom microphones and one MB 6k kick microphone feature low-profile design for minimum visibility and versatile placement options around the drum kit. Also included in the package are four AT8665 drum-rim microphone mounts and a durable carrying case.

    Tailored for snare, rack toms and other highly dynamic instruments, the MB 5k snare/tom microphone offers a moving coil dynamic design with cardioid polar pattern, delivering superior off-axis rejection for maximum gain before feedback. With a frequency response of 100-12,000 Hz, the mic is engineered to handle fast transients and high SPLs.

    The cardioid dynamic MB 6k kick microphone has a frequency response of 60-12,000 Hz. A natural at handling high SPLs, the MB 6k delivers superior results on bass drum as well as on floor and deep rack toms.
