AKG Drum Set Premium reference drum microphone set is a hand-selected collection of the highest-quality microphones for touring, live and studio applications. The rugged metal carry case houses a range of the best AKG microphones made for capturing miking drums while simultaneously ensuring safe transportation wherever you go. The Drum Set Premium is hand-selected in Vienna, Austria and contains the following 8 world-class microphones:

  • 1 x D12 VR Dynamic bass drum microphone
  • 1 x C214 Matched pair condenser microphones for overheads
  • 1 x C451 B condenser microphone for Hi Hat
  • 4 x D40 Dynamic instrument microphones for snare and toms

The D12 VR is a reference large-diaphragm dynamic microphone with cardioid polar pattern. Designed specifically for kick-drum recording applications, the microphone has a thin diaphragm to enhance the low frequency performance. Its warm sound is realized by the original C414 transformer, especially impressive at high signal levels. 

The C214 professional large-diaphragm condenser microphone has been designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end C414 family. Like the C414, the C214 offers a supreme one-inch capsule on an integrated suspension to reduce mechanical noise. A switchable 20dB attenuation pad allows recording of loud sources of up to 156dB SPL. A switchable bass-cut filter allows close-up recording with almost no proximity effect.

The C451 B is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with the identical acoustical behavior of its predecessor, the legendary C451 EB + CK1 capsule, which was a bestseller right from the start in 1969.

The D40 professional instrumental microphone with its solid all-metal body will stand up to the hardships of night-after-night onstage use “with a smile.” Its patented Varimotion diaphragm uses a unique laminated material to damp high resonance peaks, leading to a quantum leap in audio performance. The transducer is protected by a sturdy wire-mesh cap and can take extremely high sound pressure levels with ease.

 

The D12 VR features three active filter presets to match its sound shape with the kick drum’s character. When activated, the output level is automatically reduced by 10 dB. The filter settings can be controlled using a switch on the microphone body. Without phantom power, the microphone operates in passive mode and delivers the instruments pure sound.

  • Ultra thin diaphragm for accurate reproduction of the instruments sound
  • Optimized bass chamber for enhanced low frequency performance
  • Patented switchable active-filter presets to match the drums character
  • Original C414 transformer delivers a warm sound especially at high signal levels
  • Cardioid polar pattern rejects overspill from nearby instruments

The C214 captures sound by combining one capsule of the legendary C414 dual-capsule system and the patented AKG Back-Plate Technology, resulting in an outstanding performance close to the famous C414 XLII.

  • Sonic character of the C414 XLII for beautifully detailed recording of lead vocals and solo instruments
  • Outstanding dynamic range and ultralow noise for close-up recording of high-output sources of up to 156dB SPL
  • Switchable 20dB attenuator and bass-cut filter for close-up recording and reduction of proximity effect
  • Integrated suspension to reduce mechanical noise and vibration from stage
  • Roadworthy design all-metal die-cast body with shock- and scratch-resistant finish

With its airy sound, high overload limit and improved engineering details, the C451 B continues the success story of this legend. The roadworthy design around the handcrafted capsule and the low-noise preamp electronics ensure impressive results even under very harsh conditions.

  • Sound of the legendary C451 EB + CK1 capsule from 1969 delivers stunning sound quality with maximum accuracy
  • Established tour sound standard since the 1980s for excellent sound quality even under harsh on-stage conditions
  • Impressive sound pressure level capability of 155dB SPL allows close-miking of high-energy sound sources without distortion
  • Highly effective high-pass filter with 12dB/octave prevents low-end distortion caused by rumble or wind noise
  • Transformer-less preamp and surface mount technology provides extremely low distortion, highest reliability and less weight

An integrated stand adapter in combination with the included H440 mounting bracket makes the D40 a highly versatile tool for use on drums, percussion, wind instruments and guitar amps.

  • Dual-thickness Varimotion diapraghm provides crisp, powerful sound in all frequency ranges
  • Highest sound pressure levels up to 156dB for extreme situations without any distortion
  • Cardioid polar pattern for trouble-free use in narrow stage environments
  • Rugged wire-mesh cap and sturdy die-cast metal body withstand tough day-by-day stage use
  • Integrated stand adapter and external bracket for easy mounting on drums and mic stands
