The boutique Moon Mic is tailor-made to capture the resonant frequencies of the bass drum.

Moon Mic Black (5/26/15 - Oxnard, CA) Now available in black, Moon Mic’s patented unidirectional kick drum microphones are specifically designed for kick drums, floor toms and bass instruments with high sound pressure levels. The Moon Mic’s 8” diaphragm microphone receives an accurate range of frequencies coming from the resonant bass drum head without the need for heavy EQ, compression, or any other signal processing.

Moon Mics can be positioned anywhere from the center of the drum to the rim to give drummers control over a range of low to high frequencies. Punch, sustain, and decay can also be controlled by the distance between drum head and microphone. An integrated filter lowers the mid and high amplitude, but does not remove the frequencies which are still present up to 15k, creating a shelf for the primary attack microphone. Moon Mic's low impedance, 250 ohms delivers a smooth signal and does not require +48V Phantom power to operate.Moon Mic

Drum Workshop/Drum Channel audio engineer Chris Denogean comments, “The Mon Mic is very easy to use. I’ve used it on many different bass drum brands and bass drum sizes, in just about any musical situation you can think of. When I blend it with a D6, D112 or Beta 52, it gives me the full range of tonal frequencies from that drum. I’m never left wanting more and I don’t have to rely on EQ or compression to get the sound I’m after.”
