New AT Kick Mic

This is a new twist on things...

A single mic with a dynamic element and condenser element in the same body. The literature claims they are perfectly phase aligned! That sounds like a very cool idea on paper.



That is something I definitely wanna try.

Check it out

Makes me wonder what else it would be good for...guitar cabs? It would be cool if you could adjust the balance between the 2 elements at the head or have separate outs for post mixing. I guess you could switch the condensor's pad in to reduce its contribution. interesting.

Offhand, I would think to try it for downtuned and/or 7 string guitars in Nu Metal, but some plain dynamic kick mics can do the trick, too. I'm guessing it'll be a bit more applicable than the dynamics that generally have a pretty narrow peak up high in the range to grab some beater click. But I don't really do Nu metal.

The mic has a 5 pin connector with each element going to its own output. That's what would make it so cool in IMO.

That's what I was thinking. A single mic in front of the cab gives you two phase aligned tracks to hard pan or place outside of the center of the stereo field.

Looks rad. I might get one soon and if I do I'll be sure to offer my thoughts in a few applications.
