    Def. a step up or two from the cad mic i was using. I think that MXL should make more drum mics.

    Awesome Kick Mic

    By Toby Baxley

    Comments about MXL A-55 Kicker Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone:

    I couldn't believe how great this mic sounded. We were recording with the kick mic from a CAD kit. Just for grins, I pulled it and replaced it with the A55. It sounded so great. The kick sound was tight and punchy. I'm looking forward to mixing these tracks because they already sound good.
    Simple. You plug it in and stick it inside the drum pointed at the beater.
    Very solid and heavy. Looks great too.
    Excellent value. It sounds fantastic; very punchy.

    bought used and still good!

    Comments about MXL A-55 Kicker Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone:

    so I'm cheap... what can I say? I had a cad pro 7 mic set and the kick mic for that just sucked... various placements or eq magic did nothing for it. I saw this on ebay for 40 bucks so I gave it a shot since it was only used for a mic shootout demo. Right out of the box i noticed it is heavy and very well made. I placed it just barely inside my pearl blx birch kick drum with aquarian super kick II and aquarian regulator head tightened just past wrinkles and wow! with no eq in my logic studio I was already very pleased with the sound! I would go for this mic over any others if you are looking for a cheap cost great sounding kick mic. Kudos to MXL for making mics at an affordable cost and quality sound!
