From big band to metalcore, the V KICK has got you covered.
The V KICK is the most compact and versatile drum microphone in its class, intended for use with kick (bass) drums and other sources such as miking bass guitar speaker cabinets, floor toms or other large drums where low-frequency energy is of the utmost importance. Its integrated swivel joint allows for any required mic placement, and its specialized capsule provides a sound character tailored specifically for kick drums, which can be further shaped with the use of two switches on the rear side of the microphone. From warm and classic to modern and aggressive, the V KICK gives you any kick drum sound you need.
From classic to modern:
Four switchable sonic voicings.
Two switches on the rear side of the V KICK allow you four different sound settings, great for tailoring the sound for your specific project â€“ and ideal for live shows with multiple bands and short changeovers. And since theyâ€™re on the back of the mic, these switches are still accessible even if the V KICK is placed inside a kick drum.
With the V KICK, you can always make the right choice with just a single microphone.
The all-new custom DMC7 SB capsule offers the same technologies and features as its siblings within the acclaimed V7 and V7 X, including the innovative, specialized aluminum voice coil. While the V7 X is optimized for most other instruments, the capsule in the V KICK has been custom-tuned for the very lowest and loudest tones. With aluminum being a much lighter material than the industry standard (copper), it delivers an open and transient-rich sound, with effortless capture of low frequency energy and punch. The midrange is also extremely balanced, supporting the natural resonances of percussive instruments.
The excellent off-axis rejection of this sophisticated capsule also helps isolate your kick drum from other sound sources on the stage – efficiently reducing stage bleed and spill from snare, toms, hi-hat and more. The supercardioid pattern also allows you to easily tailor the bottom-end by adjusting the proximity effect â€“ i.e. distance to the sound source.
Proven Neodymium magnets, tight production tolerances and high workmanship ensure excellent sensitivity, high-end sound quality and superb consistency.
