VP of Sales Cliff Castle proudly accepted the award on behalf of Audix. Castle states, “I was very pleased that we were nominated in the ‘best drum mic’ category and I was even more excited when our 7-mic kit was chosen over all other single mics. I promised the audience that they could count on Audix to design and produce more innovative, high performance products in the future.”
As the name implies, the DP-7 contains 7 microphones. At the heart of the mic system is the popular D6 dynamic kick drum microphone. For snare drum, the recently developed i-5 is provided; for rack toms there are two D2 mics, for floor tom there is a D4, and for overheads there are two ADX51 condenser microphones with pad and roll-off.
Additionally there are 4 D-Vice rim mounting clips which eliminate the need for mic stands for snare and toms. The entire mic kit is packaged in a convenient aluminum carrying case.
The DP-7 microphones, which were developed for professional live sound, recording, and broadcast applications, have been considered by a growing number of artists and engineers to be the very best instrument microphones available today. The MIPA award further substantiates this claim. The DP-7 carries an MSRP of $1,747.
Optional accessories for the DP Series packages include right angle XLR-XLR mic cable, the D-flex mounting clip, the D-Clamp clip for lug nut mounting, and the STAND-KD pedestal mic stand for use with bass drum and guitar cabs.
