AKG is showcasing the Drum Set Concert 1 professional drum microphone set, featuring seven microphones and accessories in a rugged aluminium carrying case. The set provides everything you need capture a drum kit, or mic bass and guitar amps, percussion, woodwinds and other instruments.
“AKG is known for creating some of the world’s finest drum microphones, such as the industry-standard D112,” said Noel Larson, Retail Solutions, Harman Professional. “Drum Set Concert 1 brings together an outstanding collection of mics that make it easy for drummers to get the very best sound from their kits. In addition, it’s the only set in its class that includes seven mics, making it an unbeatable value.”
The Drum Set Concert 1 features the D112 MkII bass drum mic (now with integrated flexible mount), two compact C430 overhead mics, and four D40 drum microphones.
Designed for cymbal and overhead miking, the C430 professional condenser microphone delivers a uniquely clear, crisp sound that often reduces the need for external EQs. Its extremely compact design keeps a low profile in any application—without compromising audio quality.
Featuring a solid, all-metal body, the D40’s patented Varimotion diaphragm uses a unique laminated material to damp high-resonance peaks. The transducer is protected by a sturdy wire-mesh cap and can take extremely high sound pressure levels (up to 156dB). Comes with an integrated stand adapter and included mounting bracket.
The Drum Set Concert 1 ships in a rugged aluminium carrying case for easy transport and storage, along with all necessary microphone clamps and stand adapters.
