Your mic for double-power kick drum sound.

The DTP 640 REX is a dual-element microphone specifically designed to capture the sound of your drums and percussion instruments. It consists out of two phase-aligned capsules, a condenser and a dynamic one. You can switch between three sounds for more flexibility for studio and live applications.

Unique sound for bass drums and other bass-heavy instruments.

Dual-element kick drum microphone

Two capsules for the best of your source.

We put two phase-aligned microphones in a single housing.  The dynamic side ensures accurate attack reproduction of the kick drum, while the condenser element captures the drum's low end. Each element has a dedicated output.

This enables you to shape the kick drum sound in unique ways.

Three switchable sound characteristics

Hear and feel that kick.

Dynamic =//= Condenser 
Both elements with neutral frequency response.

Dynamic +//= Condenser 
Dynamic element boosts frequencies between 3 and 5 kHz, condenser stays neutral.

Dynamic +//+ Condenser
Dynamic for range 3-5 kHz, condenser for frequencies 70-150 Hz to deliver full-bodied sound.
