Default Re: What is this mic and why does everyone use it??

It's basically a speaker, just wired to pick up like a microphone. The reason studios use these "mics" for the kick, and other bass instruments, is to handle the lower frequencies that any...normal mic wouldn't be able to handle/pick-up. We have the Yamaha Subkick at the studio I work at, it really fattens up the kick drum, and adds a smoothness to the lower frequencies, but still boosts them, so you really feel it when you are listening. It really does make a difference. We also use them on bass guitar cabinets, also smooths it out but still boosts it and makes it really present. Like adding the MaxxBass plugin...sort of like that. Yep. there it is. Great price too. Latah.
