Annonces D3Alerte nouvelle annonce
I have had one of these for many years. For a long time I rarely used it, but one day I was short on mics and I had to put one on a guitar cab. I was actually very surprised at how good it sounded, and since then it has found its way into my rotation more frequently. It has a good low end warmth since it was originally supposed to be for toms, but the mids are definitely pronounced enough to represent electric guitars and brass instruments well. I would not bother getting this for drums since the other mics in the D line do a better job of that, but for an all-purpose dynamic for loud instruments, this mic does a good job. I recommend it for that use.
I’ve been using the Audix D3 dynamic mic for about three years and I have found it to be a useful microphone mostly while recording drums, among other uses. It is a small microphone, so it can be placed on a tom tom or snare drum without any fear that the drummer will hit it with their stick. Since it is small, it makes it easy to place anywhere without getting in the way. For this reason, it works great when micing up a drum kit for a live show. The sound quality is pretty good, even if it is not the most versatile mic in the world. It is great at what is does, like the other Audix microphones in the ‘D’ series. While I like the D4 better than the D3, the D3 is a great mic to have in any collection as it gives you options. While it definitely wouldn’t be my first choice, it is effective when recording electric guitar, as well as the aforementioned tom tom and snare drums. The price of the Audix D3 is quite reasonable and is definitely on the lower end of price range. This makes it a great choice for home studio owners, or for small clubs who want a big sound on a budget. While I’d rather record any drums with a Sennhesier MD 421 over the Audix D3, the D3 is a good mic that will cost less than half than the MD 421. Overall, highly recommended to both home studio owners and professionals alike.
What is especially fantastic about the Audix D3 is the fact that the microphone is so good at micing up a guitar amp. The fact that this microphone can handle both high frequency capture and enormous amounts of SPL, combined with the response that boosts low mids and presence peaks at transition points between frequency classification ranges at 2,750 Hz, 5,000 Hz, and 10,000 Hz, gives the microphone a great amount of definition that its successor the Audix D4 seems to oddly lack.
If you can find these still hanging around, I highly recommend that you check them out!
