      The B-Band UKKO-K kick drum contact mic system is a remarkable way to capture the true tonality of your kick drum consistently, conveniently, and with extreme isolation. This system consists of two important components: the UKKO DMK preamp, built with high-quality class-A electronics, and the UKKO DST1 Contact mic for superb tone. This system will work with any size kick drum, and gives you high-resolution sound, and easy setup!

      This mic system was designed to be able to blend-in visually with the drum kit. That is why B-Band designed the DMK preamp to be chrome colored to match most drum hardware. It is an extremely lightweight system that does not add any noticeable weight to the drum, or get in the way while performing like most other drum mic systems. It also very robust and durable, and will endure rigorous touring.

      Setting up and tearing down have never been this easy. The DST1 has an adhesive back that mounts easily and discreetly on the inside of the drum shell near the batter head. The DST1 lead wire is fed through the drum air hole to the DMK preamp. The preamp mounts in the air hole outside of the drum, and was specially designed to not interrupt the flow of air as the drum breathes. Being as the DMK preamp is so small in size, there is no need to remove it to put the drum in its case, leave it on and be ready for the next gig or studio session.

      To better capture the low frequencies of the kick drum there are two mini switches inside the DMK preamp that contour the sound for a choice of tone. One switch controls a -6dB mid cut at 330 Hz and the other is for a +6dB high boost at 5 kHz.

      If you have a hole cut on your resonant head or if there is no resonant head on your kick drum, this will make the UKKO-K sound thinner. It is recommended to have a solid resonant head for maximum tonal quality.

          Purchased on a whim, and glad I did! Makes dialing your kick pain free. Honestly produces a better sound than my D6 all around even with EQ flat. Will have to wait and see how well it holds up to time and travel....

            Comments about B-Band UKKO-K Single Kick Drum Contact Mic:

            So I bought this as an experiment since theres not really much out there about it. I ended up loving it. it was difficult to put it on with my bass drum at frist because of the rivit that was in the air hole but once that was removed it was easy as cake. I love that its out of the way and would definitely want to purchase the whole set because for me, no matter how small the mics are, I always seems to hit them. This mic sounds great for live shows for smaller gigs. Great for an easy quick set up. I even had a professional do sound at one of my shows and he had a Sure Beta 91A in my kick and tried out this one for fun and he said they were very similar sounding and that he hardly could tell a difference. So bottom line, for drummers who always have gigs this is the way to go! I love it.

            Best solution with quick gig setup and load out

            Comments about B-Band UKKO-K Single Kick Drum Contact Mic:

            I found the mic to work as advertised, but left both cut switches on. We found out unless the drums aren't next to a bass amp which vibrates the heads, they'll work just great. Otherwise they whack out and produce a low end hum to where we had to switch to a regular external mic. After reading the other review, I'll try turning on the HZ frequency cut switches which is prolly the work around. Other than that, you can't go wrong with these awesome mics! This mic can mount by two sided tape, as I didn't what to drill a hole in the shell. There is not a rim mount op with the bass mic. The Snare one works great in all situations so far and mounts on the rim!!

            Nice mic

            By Zach Provost

            Comments about B-Band UKKO-K Single Kick Drum Contact Mic:

            I got this for Christmas and put it in my 22x20" bass right away.Once you get it tuned how you like it this is the sickest sounding mic you will ever feel... Thats right, feel, its one of those mics that once its on you feel it all up and down your back.The only thing that I dont like is the fact that you have to turn both of the gain switches on to make it sound right.Overall its a extremely sick mic.
