Earthworks KP1 Kick Pad

Earthworks KP1 Kick Pad turns virtually any mic into a kick drum mic!

Earthworks KP1 Kick Pad Details

Whether you're recording or performing live, getting a good kick drum sound is crucial to the sound of modern music. You need the right combination of bottom end and beater attack without overloading or causing interference problems with the bass or synths. Now, even if you don 't have a kick drum-optimized mic, Earthworks has developed the KickPad, an affordable way to guarantee you'll get that sound!

Earthworks KickPad Kick Drum System at a Glance:

  • Turns virtually any mic into a kick drum mic!
  • Earthworks proprietary technology optimizes kick sound
  • Convenient in-line connection
  • Turns virtually any mic into a kick drum mic!

The Earthworks KickPad solves a problem many small studios and live groups encounter: you have a limited number of available mics and can't fit the expense of a dedicated kick drum mic in your collection. With the KickPad's easy connection you can take almost any mic and put it in front of the kick and get great sound! The KickPad works with both dynamic and condenser mics and allows you to continue using them on any other application when you need them.

Earthworks is renowned for their premium-grade condenser microphone designs. They're used for critical recording and reference work in studios and concert halls around the world. When designing the KickPad, Earthworks engineers turned their precision-tuned ears to all the qualities demanded in kick drum reproduction. The exclusive patent-pending technology in the KickPad gives you optimized low-frequency response, clearly defined beater attack and tonally shaped output. With the KickPad all you need to do is plug it into your kick drum line and you'll instantly hear improved sound.

Installing the KickPad is easy. Just plug one end into your mic's XLR output and connect the other to the mic cable - that's all! The KickPad doesn't need any settings, adjustment or power connection. It automatically goes to work, turning your mic into a kick-optimized performer. The KickPad's slim barrel shape doesn't take up any rack space or stage space. Almost invisible, the KickPad could be the "secret weapon" that will make your mixes stand out! Earthworks includes a KickPad in their incredible DrumKit microphone set but now you can have one for yourself at a remarkably low price.


Earthworks KP1 Kick Pad Features

  • In-line XLR kick drum mic optimization system
  • Delivers great kick sound and solves mix problems
  • Works on almost any mic - condenser, dynamic and ribbon
  • Easily plugs into mic cable

Useful… sometimes May 17, 2012
Reviewer: Lorenzo from France  
Useful to get more quickly the sound on the kick drum for live gigs. But you don't need this pad for studio work.
The result is not as efficient with all microphones, I like it with D112 or RE20 but not with D6 for example.

This thing really lives up to the hype.I've used it in quite a few situations.For a live sound guy it's a great secret weapon and for recording it's a great help with hard to record kick drums,even cheap ones!
