EVERYTHING ABOUT
DRUM MIKING

Percussion instruments are one of the oldest forms of music making. Capturing and/or amplifying their natural, powerful sound in detail is a must. Our microphones transfer the dynamics, attack and depth of drums to perfection. And they need no excessive equalising to do so.

In this 6-part video series on drum miking we explain what to look for and which mic is best for which instrument.

So let's do a deep dive into drum miking 101 and beyond!
