Based on the design of classic sub-frequency microphones, the Avantone Pro KICK is designed with an over-size transducer to capture low-end frequencies and add even more depth to your mix.

KICK is built with a real drum shell housing a single AV10 MLF driver, based on the classic NS10 driver design of the 1990s, which serves as the capsule’s chief component and captures an incredibly wide range of sub frequencies.

Each KICK also ships with a double braced rugged aluminium drum stand for perfect positioning either on stage or in the studio. When it comes to getting the perfect sub frequency recording placement is key, so users are recommended to try several different positioning scenarios before settling on the perfect sound.

Whilst KICK covers a wide frequency range in the low end, Avantone still recommend partnering sub frequency mics with a regular dynamic microphone to capture the high-end – affectionately referred to by Avantone as the 'snap.’

The KICK sub frequency microphone is the perfect partner to add depth to a range of different low-register sources such as tuba, double bass, timpani, and of course most famously kick drum.
