“Dedicated bass drum mics are relatively commonplace nowadays, but there’s nothing common about the BDM-01. Refined and detailed sounding, […] an impressive addition to the Swedish stable.” – AudioTechnology Magazine

The BDM-01 is a dedicated bass drum microphone that is as equally at home in the studio as on the road. It has been designed in every detail to handle the sound pressure level and specific sonic qualities of the bass drum. The high-end condenser capsule provides excellent attack and HF response, and the frequency curve has been tailored for that perfect bass drum sound. The dynamic range, sensitivity and pop filters are also optimised for the sound and power of the bass drum.

The heart of the microphone is Milab’s handcrafted 21 mm condenser capsule that captures the true sound of the drum with a fullness and attention to detail that is simply superior to a typical dynamic microphone alternative.

Package includes: 3127 stand holder, 3402 windscreen and individual frequency graph.

This is a microphone that's been designed to a sonic ideal rather than to a budget. It has been designed by ear, not by numbers. It has been designed for the task at hand. It is not cheap, yet neither is it ostentatious. It is the master, not the apprentice.
