AKG D112 MKii
Large Diaphragm dynamic bass microphone with punchy response
The AKG D112 MKii is a large-diaphragm cardioid dynamic microphone featuring a high SPL capacity (of 160dB, meaning it’s practically distortion-proof ) ideal for miking drums and other high SPL applications. It’s suitable for use in studio environments as well as in a live setup.
The frequency response of the AKG D112 Mkii is specifically tailored for kick drums and comes with a wide frequency bandwidth ranging between 20Hz – 17000Hz. The lows (below 100Hz) have a powerful response that delivers a resonant/deep and punchy bass, along with a subtle boost in presence at 3.5kHz that adds balanced clarity to the beater attack/impact sounds in instruments.
Though, it’s also suitable for other low-end instruments such as bass cab, brass instruments, bass amps, percussion etc.
The D112-Mkii is a revised version of its predecessor’s (the D112), coming with an integrated flexible stand mount compared to D112’s rigid mount. Tone-wise and otherwise, both the mics are identical.
