L'avis de Viguier"Très bon sur les TOMS médiums..."

Audix D2
Utilisé dans un studio quasi pro...
Utilisé avec différents préamplis ( ceux, excellents, de ma Soundcraft 3200, ou bien sur du API ou du Aurora Audio ), et avec toujours un excellent résultat.

Ce micro, conçu aux USA et fabriqué en Chine, est d'excellente facture ( j'ai le pack DP7 en valisette ). J'en ai deux.

Je l'utilise également beaucoup en prise pour des Lives.

Le gros avantage c'est qu'il y a TRES peu de repisse par rapport aux autres éléments de la batterie, et c'est le cas sur tous les autres micros du kit batterie de chez Audix...
J'ai aussi un DP6, un DP4, un i5 et c'est idem... et cohérent lorsque tous utilisés sur une même batterie ( et avec les mêmes préamps aussi... :) ).

Utilisé depuis des lustres, je fais varier pas mal les micros batterie depuis un an ou deux ( on a un set complet de MD421 ( superbes eux aussi mais avec plus de repisse quand même ), des Béta 98, des Shure KSM141, des SM57, et même les mini cellules spéciaux toms Audix...
Les MD421 ont un son plus"profond", mais les Audix ont un son "fini et moderne", souvent je mets les 2 ( en bossant la phase sur chaque élément de la batterie du coup, en partant des overheads... ), et je choisi/colorise au besoin au mix ;)

Je l'ai également essayé sur un ampli guitare une fois et c'était très très correct ( je préfère l'équa particulière du SM57 pour les amplis guitares... :) ).

J'en reprendrai un si il m'arrivait d'en casser un...
Vivement conseillé, comme tout le pack Audix, pour le Live et comme "base" pour le Studio...

Audix D2
Micro spécialement prévu pour reprise toms médiums

AVIS GLOBAL

Ca fait un mois que je les ai
On trouve tout de suite le son , Grande fidélité ( Ecoutez le résultat avec un bon casque )
Evidemment il va falloir avoir affaire à un batteur sachant régler sa batterie ! ( On ne fait pas un super son avec une source foireuse...)
La directivité est excellente et on limite terriblement les repisses ( Un des gros casse-tête de la sonorisation de batterie )
J'ai utilisé des Seinheiser Md421 et des Shure Beta 98 et jes trouve les Audix bien meilleurs ! ( et bien plus faciles ! )
Dernier point : C'est pô cher !!!

Audix D2
Micro dynamique cardioide, orienté batterie (snare, tom, et grosse caisse dans un jeu jazzy).
il fait aussi les cuivres, percussions, et les amplis guitare.

L'avis de Anonyme (contenu en anglais)"Huge sound!"

Audix D2
The Audix D2 is another one of the microphones from Audix's percussion line. It is an instrument microphone, designed for use on tom drums, and congas. Audix claims that the microphone lacks the muddiness of many drum microphones, but continues with claiming that the D2 manages to retain the warmth that one would want from these particular percussion instruments. Toms and congas are very meaty drums, and a drum microphone that retains this sound is very important.

The Audix D2 contains, like many microphones from Audix, a very low mass diaphragm, improving its transient response, naturally something that many dynamic microphones struggle with. The microphone is hypercardioid, and boasts an ability to handle whopping SPLs of 144 dB. It can also isolate "each instrument's 'sweet spot.'" It has a frequency response from 80 Hz to 18,000 Hz.

The D2 is also a very small microphone, measuring at under 4 inches and weighing just over a quarter of a pound. With toms and congas, this is important, as many microphones do have the tendency to get in the way and get hit by the drummer. Generally, drums microphones are also made very durable for this reason, and although the D2 stays out of the way, it can take a bit of punishment if it needs to.

OVERALL OPINION

In use, I have found that the Audix D2 microphones are very useful on toms and congas that just need that extra warmth. However, it does in fact manage to avoid that muddy frequency bloating that can happen with less expensive microphones. They are also relatively inexpensive, so they are, in this humble reviewer's opinion, quite a steal. This is actually a microphone that I can, for its value, recommend without any hesitation to almost any drummer out there. If the warmth becomes too overwhelming (which it won't because this warmth is almost unquantifiable, but very sweet sounding) then it isn't hard to turn it down.

Audix D2
The Audix D2 is a dynamic microphone that is suited for both use in the recording studio and in live situations. I have only used this in the studio, but because of how small and inexpensive it is, it also makes it a great option for micing drums on stage. The D2 has a polar pattern of hyper cardioid.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Audix D2 dynamic mic for about four years and have found it to be a serviceable microphone. The only thing I have used this for is recording tom tom drums, and it has excelled in this situation. The size of the D2 makes it perfect to place on tom tom drums as you can place it right over the drum without it getting in the drummers way in any way. The sound quality of the D2 is adequate for this situation, and while it won't blow you away, it picks up the drums great as it is made to pick up things like tom tom drums. I would compare the Audix D2 to the other Audix mics of its kind - the D3 and D4. This series of mics are great at what they do, but don't excel too much beyond what they are best at. You could also probably record electric guitar well with the D2, but it definitely wouldn't be my first choice. The price of the Audix D2 makes it a viable option for both home studio owners and professionals alike, and I have seen it used in both situations. The price tag is really one of the best things about this mic as you can pick up a few of these if you wanted for a dirt cheap price. While there are mics that I would rather use on tom tom drums, like a Sennhesier MD 421 or a Shure SM 57, the Audix D2 does the job as well.

Audix D2
The Audix D2 is probably the second most popular of their D line of drum mics, behind the more often used Audix D6 kick drum mic. The D2 is tailored to be used on close miking rack toms. It is light-weight and short, which makes it a lot easier to mount it on the rim of drums and still be able to point it at the skin right on, which gives you a more punchy and direct drum sound. It is a dynamic moving coil mic, so it doesn't need any phantom power. The pickup pattern is cardioid, so that will help it to reject any off axis sound from nearby drums or hi-hat. This will connect to your preamp or mixer with an XLR cable. The frequency response goes down to about 50Hz or so, which is plenty low enough for rack toms. There is a little bit of a bump around 200Hz, which is nice for making your toms sound more full and weighty. There is also a presence peak in the upper mids to help give your drums a better attack.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using these for a very long time on toms. I feel that they usually don't do as good of a job as the tom mic king, the Sennheiser 421, but on some drums the Audix D2 just fits better and you'll get a better sound with them. They are also a lot more convenient to physically attach the drum. I've always found the 421's very cumbersome to work with. The drum sounds you can get with the D2 tend to sound good right away, which helps to minimize time spent fussing with EQ to get a passable drum sound. The D2's are also very cheap, which means that they're going to be a great value if they're nearly stacking up with the 421's. I like these mics, and would recommend them.
