OVERVIEW

Tight, focused response and punchy output.

EV has been refining ND microphone technology for a long time, and its application to mounted drum mics has always been one of its strongest applications. The ND44 is a high-performance, large-diaphragm dynamic instrument microphone with a tight cardioid polar pattern, designed for excellent performance on drums and other rhythm section instrument. The ND44 capsule is tuned to deliver the aggressive and punctuated sound these instruments produce, as well as offer excellent isolation from the sound of other nearby instruments. Its rotating low-profile head and drum rim clamp make mic placement easy anywhere on a drum set, and its rugged build and tough windscreen protect it from errant stick strikes.

Best Uses

    Comments about Electro-Voice ND44 Dynamic Tight Cardioid Drum/Instrument Microphone:

    I tour a lot and my gear gets sent through the wringer. I got this right before Christmas and had a four day run with a few odd weekends since then to hear it. I put it on a Ddrum Hybrid 6x14 Birch snare - I use in ears and the mic sounds exactly like the drum. Punchy with a good solid crack!
    The mic is very solidly constructed - lots of steel and no plastic - maybe slightly too heavy. The clip is a solid pop-in stye and has a good knurled knob for adjustment. I'm not wild about the angle adjustment on the mic itself (a small set screw to handle the weight of the head and to hold up to constant jarring of snare hits? meh), but so far, so good.
    I use Sennheiser clip on e604s on my toms and expected the ND44 to be roughly the same size, but it is much bigger. I had been using an e604 on my snare, but wanted something with a bit more snap. This ND44 does the trick!
    It nestles right in between my two rack mount toms, but I did have to lower my snare about two inches to keep its profile below smack-it-with-a-stick-on-fast-fills level. Not too big of a deal.
    The more I use it, the more I will update this review.

    Excellent Capture of Low Frequencies

    Pros

    • Compact and Lightweight

    Cons

    • No standard mic stand clip

    Best Uses

    • Ideal for a Leslie Speaker

    Comments about Electro-Voice ND44 Dynamic Tight Cardioid Drum/Instrument Microphone:

    This is an excellent addition to the EV lineup of Instrument Microphones. I needed an extra low-frequency microphone for the lower rotor of my Leslie cabinet. This mic was perfect! It captures all of the bass frequencies very well for increasing the need of coverage during large outdoor venues. Smart investment!
