Product Description

DTP 640 REX Double capsule for twice the kick Thanks to its Dual-Element Technology and fine-tuned frequency responses the DTP 640 REX offers unparalleled, powerful sound that will impress drummers and sound engineers alike. The DTP 640 REX is equipped with a high-quality dynamic element and a condenser element – the dynamic element ensures accurate reproduction of the bass drum kick, while the condenser element captures the rich low frequency sound of the drum’s shell. In order to guarantee full control over the two elements, they can be mixed, each using its own channel. The DTP 640 REX provides 3 sound-shaping modes: "Linear" captures the sound in a natural way. "Dynamic Enhanced Frequency Response" has the dynamic element boosts frequencies between 3 and 5 kHz while the condenser stays neutral. "Dual Enhanced Frequency Response" delivers the ultimate full-bodied sound by having the dynamic element focuses on the 3 and 5 kHz-range while the condenser element focuses on frequencies from 70 to 150 Hz to deliver full body sound. Each element has its output! Combining these features with the comprehensive tonal freedom of Dual-Element Technology opens up a wide range of use, turning the DTP 640 REX into a universal tool for bass-heavy applications.
