  • Overview


    The comprehensive MB/Dk7 Drum Pack includes a core selection of five microphones specifically engineered for drum applications, along with two MB 4k cardioid condenser microphones ideal for drum overhead miking. Also included in the package are four drum-rim microphone mounts and a durable carrying case.

    The four included MB 5k cardioid dynamic snare/tom microphones and one MB 6k cardioid dynamic kick microphone feature low-profile design for minimum visibility and versatile placement options around the drum kit.

    With a condenser design and extended frequency response perfect for overheads and hi-hat, the MB 4k features versatile battery/phantom operation, rugged all-metal construction, soft-touch finish, gold-plated XLRM-type connector, and an on/off switch. Its cardioid polar pattern minimizes feedback. High volumes come through without distortion; even subtle nuances are clean and precise.
