Product Description

Compact dynamic microphone designed for use on drums and percussion. It has a somewhat truncated frequency response, with -3dB points around 350Hz and 14,000 Hz. It has a relatively sharp presence peak, +8dB at 8kHz, falling off quickly at higher frequencies. The small diaphragm responds instantaneously to transients, accurately capturing percussive attacks. Its supercardioid polar pattern and precisely tailored low frequency roll-off enhance the isolation of individual drums while reducing interference from the bass drum and floor toms. The small size of the M422 allows it to be placed anywhere around the drum without hampering the drummer’s freedom of movement. Its solid aluminum case handles the physical abuse a drum set must endure.
