The D112 is an industry favorite for recording kick drums.
This mic highlights really low frequencies as well as high ones. Obviously a kick should sound bassy, but pushing the highs can also be super helpful.
It’s really easy for the kick to get buried under other instruments.
By boosting the lows, you make sure the kick has plenty of oomph. But the extra high content adds some snap to your kick.
Your kick shouldn’t have any trouble punching through the mix!
There are plenty of budget-friendly kick mics out there. But the D112 is particularly impressive.
