Sontronics DM-1B Condenser Mic for Bass

The British-designed Sontronics DM-1B is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a fixed cardioid pattern, created specifically for use with kick drum and bass instruments.

The DM-1B, along with the DM-1S for snare and DM-1T for toms, represents three years of research, design and development alongside top producers and drummers, and all three microphones have become best-sellers for drum recording, both live and in the studio.

Thanks to its high sensitivity, low self-noise, a -15dB attenuation pad and the ability to handle up to 155dB SPL, the DM-1B delivers outstanding results on kick drum and also sounds fantastic on bass guitar cabinets.
