Sontronics unveils new DrumPack microphone bundles

British microphone company Sontronics has launched its new DrumPack and DrumPack Plus microphone sets, designed to deliver results in the studio and on stage.

Pulling together Sontronics’ DM-series condenser mics designed specifically for kick, snare and tom toms, the five-piece DrumPack and seven-piece DrumPack Plus represent a saving of over 30 per cent on buying the mics individually.

Sontronics DrumPack comprises a DM-1B for kick drum, a DM-1S for snare and three DM-1T mics for toms packaged together with four mic clips in a rugged ABS flightcase. It will retail for £599 inc. VAT.

The Sontronics DrumPack Plus includes the DM-1B, DM-1S and three DM-1T plus two Sontronics STC-10 pencil condenser mics for use as overheads or for miking solo percussion. The DrumPack Plus will retail for £739 inc. VAT.

The DM-series microphones were developed over a three-year period by Sontronics’ founder Trevor Coley alongside top drummers and producers. Each mic was specifically designed to accurately capture the characteristics of each element of a drumkit from the snap of the snare to the resonance of the toms and the booming thump of the kick.

Since their launch, the DM-1B, DM-1S and DM-1T have found themselves on the studio and touring kits of top drummers including Dave Grohl, Aerosmith’s Joey Kramer, Muse’s Dom Howard and many others.
