Audix D6 Reviews
The Audix D6 has a nice punch to it, so if you are making easy listening music or some type of jazz music then this microphone might not work for you. The Audix D6 has a full and rich low end to it. The frequency response on the Audix D6 is only 30 Hz-15khz and you won?t need to position it perfectly or find that perfect microphone location in o...

I have generally found the Audix D6 to have a very explosive, thunderous quality to it. Despite Audix's claims, the D6 does not seem to have the tightness to it that one would expect, as the sound that this microphone produces compared to other kick drum microphones is huge. The problem with this is that the saturation of the sound tends to mudd... [read more on Audiofanzine]Kierkes rated this unit on 2011-10-29.

This mic is receiving a '3' fo... [read more on Audiofanzine]AlexV rated this unit on 2010-03-17.
My use of the Audix D6 is limited to use with a kick drum inside of the recording studio, but I believe that the mic would have some versatility if I tried it out on other drums.

I have had this for years, and I still haven't decided if I like this or AKG's D112 more. They are the same price, so it's an easy comparison to make. The D6 usually ends up with a sound that is beefier and has more weight to it, but it is often harder to get it to cut through in a mix than a kick recorded with the D112. Another nice use I ha...
