Kick drum mic with astoundingly high SPL capacity
The D112 MKII has earned a well-deserved reputation worldwide as the best kick drum microphone ever made. That has everything to do with the fact that its 160dB max SPL rating can take just about any signal you throw at it. Heavy-footed drummers won’t faze it. The D112 MKII performs in those environments without any audible distortion. Quit running a microphone designed for your singer’s voice on your bass drum. Give your kick the sound it deserves with the AKG D112 MKII.
Specially engineered diaphragm for excellent low-frequency response
The D112 MKII’s specially engineered diaphragm with a very low resonance frequency maintains solid and powerful response below 100Hz, while a narrow band presence rise at 4kHz punches through dense mixes with little or no added EQ. The result is a kick drum sound that ideally balances precise definition and forceful impact. The D112 MKII is also an excellent choice for use with bass cabinets, trombones, and other bass instruments.
MKII features a highly flexible mount
There’s no denying that the AKG D112 is a standard for bass drum miking. But the rigid mic stand mount could really make it difficult to get that microphone right where you need it to capture the optimal sound you’re going for. The D112 MKII solves this problem with an integrated flexible mount. Getting the D112 MKII into your kick drum, mounted flush against a bass cabinet, or any other way you may need to angle the microphone is now possible. A flexible mic is even more flexible than before.
