MXL Microphones in El Segundo, Calif., announces its new DRUM PA-5K dynamic drum mic kit ($199.95). The three-piece kit comprises two of the new A-5t Tom Microphones and the MXL A-55 Kicker. All mics in the DRUM PA-5K are made of metal to withstand touring and repeated, demanding use.
The A-5t is a high SPL cardioid mic promising excellent ambient rejection and a warmth and punch that complements toms and captures distinct notes for a clear, articulated sound. The A-5t has a durable all-metal body and an adjustable, pivoting rim mount.
The A-55 Kicker delivers the deep, low-end punch of kick drums as well as bass cabinets, congas and other low frequency instruments. The A-55 Kicker has a clean pickup for fast attacks. It includes a built-in mic clip.
MXL will exhibit the DRUM PA-5K at Summer NAMM booth 624.
