Designed for use with kick drums, floor toms, tympani, or other large drums where low-frequency energy is critical and SPLs are high, the SE Electronics V Kick Drum Microphone with Classic and Modern Voices Supercardioid is the most compact and versatile bass drum microphone in its class. The V Kick's integrated swivel joint allows flexibility of placement, and its purpose-built capsule delivers a sonic character specifically tailored for bass drums. Further shaping of the sound is facilitated by two switches on the rear of the microphone. Sweetwater's advice: From Classic punch to Modern edge, the SE Electronics V KICK delivers the kick drum sound you're going for, in any music genre.
 

THE HEART OF THE V KICK: THE DMC7 SB CAPSULE

The all-new custom DMC7 SB capsule offers the same technologies and features as its siblings within the acclaimed V7 and V7 X, including the innovative, specialized aluminum voice coil. While the V7 X is optimized for most other instruments, the capsule in the V KICK has been custom-tuned for the very lowest and loudest tones.

TRANSIENT RICH ALUMINUM VOICE COIL

With aluminum being a much lighter material than the industry standard (copper), it delivers an open and transient-rich sound, with effortless capture of low-frequency energy and punch. The midrange is also extremely balanced, supporting the natural resonances of percussive instruments. Proven Neodymium magnets, tight production tolerances, and high workmanship ensure excellent sensitivity, high-end sound quality, and superb consistency.

 

THE MOST COMPACT KICK DRUM MIC ON THE MARKET

The V KICKs extremely low profile allows for effortless placement outside or inside a kick drum, and its integrated swivel joint allows for easy positioning inside (through the drum head port) or outside the kick drum.

The V KICK's road-ready chassis is all metal, with no fragile plastic parts. The chassis' high-quality, highly durable die-cast zinc alloy is designed to withhold the wear & tear of day-to-day day tour life for years, the spring steel mesh grille is dent-proof and corrosion-free for perfect reliability, and the tightening knob for the swivel mount maintains a rock-solid hold on the V KICK in any position. Plus, the V KICK's gold-plated XLR connector ensures a loss-free and reliable signal connection for years to come.
 

THE LEFT-HAND SWITCH SHAPES THE MICROPHONE OVERALL VOICING.

Classic provides a more traditional kick drum sound with a familiar low-frequency punch and a warmer, more rounded sound. If a more contemporary, aggressive sound is desired, the Modern setting emphasizes the low end and high end (a scooped sound).

THE RIGHT-HAND SWITCH SPECIFICALLY TAILORS THE HIGH-FREQUENCY CHARACTER.

Classic provides a typical bite in the upper midrange (presence boost) and a more rounded and familiar sound, while Modern provides an open, clear, and transient-rich top end for a more contemporary, aggressive drum sound - ideal for metal and hard rock.
