Audix D2 Trio Microphone Pack
The Audix D2 Trio is a special mega-discounted bundle, perfect for anyone who has their kick and snare mics already, but has been missing great sounding mics for their drum toms, congas, bass or guitar cabinets, and even does a solid and great job on Saxophone, Brass, and Horns.
The Audix D2 Trio is everything you need for miking your toms, all in one convenient package. The tailored frequency response of the D2 gives you all the punch, clarity and warmth needed for percussion without being muddy or boomy. The proprietary VLM (Very Low Mass) capsule technology provides superior transient response and more accurately captures every detail of your music.
The included DVICE mounts let you squeeze these mics into tight places eliminating the need for bulky mic stands.
Designed, machined, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the D2 is a dynamic instrument microphone used for stage, studio and broadcast applications. The D2 is characterized with a hypercardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control and is equipped with a VLM (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction.
The D2 is lightweight, compact and easy to position. With a wide frequency response of 68 Hz - 18 kHz and the ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 144 dB, the D2 is an excellent choice for miking instruments with a percussive nature such as rack toms, congas, saxophone, guitar cabinets and brass.
The D2 is manufactured with a precision machined aluminum body, durable black anodized finish, dent resistant steel mesh grill and gold plated XLR connector. Transformerless design, low impedance, and balanced output allow for interference-free performance even with long cable runs.

What We Think
The Audix D2 Trio is a dream come true for someone who already owns an i5 (or two, or three) and a D6, but was shy to jump in on a whole Audix DP5, DP7, or DP8 drum kit. My experience with the D2 is that it truly gives me a very usable sound right off the bat, requiring little to no equalization. The rejection is fantastic. And there really is something special about Audix's continued use of Alnico as the magnet material in their VLM (Very Low Mass) capsule technology. Like the prized pickups in vintage guitars, Alnico simply sounds more musical to my ears; less hard and hyped than Neodymium usually translates. But despite all of my audio-nerd-speak, all you need to know is that the D2 Trio is an investment that will pay for itself immediately and you'll have a set of microphones (and some very good drum clips in the DVICE!) for life.

Audix mics are of the highest quality and these are no exception.
A great addition to anyone's drum mic arsenal, especially with the goose-neck rim clamps... no horrible "sproing-y" rubber ones here!
Good value, too.
