The Apex-DP3 drum pack contains all of the microphones necessary for miking the drum kit in most live of studio applications. Specialized dynamic mics for the snare & toms as well as a large diaphragm dynamic mic or the kick drum cover the basic kit. Two highly effective pencil condenser microphones are included for use on hi-hats, accessory percussion or for use as overheads.
The Bass Drum:
The Apex125 large diaphragm dynamic microphone is ideally suited to handling the high SPL and extended low frequencies that most bass drums can produce. The mic's element is protected in a solid zinc die cast outer casing and can easily handle 165dB SPL at the input. The hyper-cardioid polar pattern offers maximum sound rejection from 180 degrees off axis, or the back of the microphone and provides improved isolation from other instruments or 'cross-talk' from other parts of the drum kit.
The Snare and Toms:
The Apex126 is designed from the ground up for drum kit, and is ideally suited for the demanding job of miking the snare and toms. Made of a rugged zinc die cast casing to protect the mic's elements from the occasional stick hit that is inevitable over a drumhead, the Apex126 is the perfect blend of performance and toughness. A cardioid polar pattern offers maximum rejection 180 degrees off axis, handling high SPL with a minimum of cross talk in the drum mix. The Apex126 can easily handle up to 145dB SPL at the input, and comes equipped with a rubber shock-absorbing clip made for mounting on the drum rim. This clip is solid, designed not to shift position or to damage your snare's chrome or brass rim.
Hi-Hats, Percussion Instruments and Overheads:
A pair of Apex190 pencil condenser microphones is included in the Apex-DP3 drum pack. The Apex190's flat-frequency response and cardioid polar pattern make it an ideal solution for hi-hats, on percussion instruments or as overhead microphones for the entire kit. The Apex190 is a condenser microphone and requires phantom power to operate.
