SONTRONICS DM-1S condenser mic for Snare
Representing three years of research, design and development alongside professional drummers and producers, the Sontronics DM-1S have been specifically created to capture all the characteristics of your snare respectively.
Together with Sontronics DM-1B condenser mic for kick drum, the DM-1S and DM-1T give you everything you need to get exceptional results from your drumkit or individual drums, both live and in the studio.
The DM-1S are small-diaphragm condenser mics, with a -10dB attenuation pad and capable of capturing up to an impressive 135db SPL.
They are designed to capture all the classic characteristics of your drum - the snap, crack and rattle of your snare and the slap, boom and resonance of your tom tom. The two microphones have slightly different frequency response and capture to get exceptional results, both live and in the studio..
The mic is supplied with a mic clip and also a basic mounting arm to allow you to quickly get set up and attach the mic to the rim of your snare. However, most engineers or producers will use individual mic stands to get the mics as close as possible to your drum head.
The DM-1S is ideal for kit snare and orchestral snare drum, but users have told us that they also give incredible results on cajón, djembe and doumbek.
Like all of Sontronics microphones, DM-1S are covered by unique Sontronics LIFETIME WARRANTY.
