From classic to modern: Four switchable sonic voicings.
Two switches on the rear side of the V KICK allow you four different sound settings, great for tailoring the sound for your specific project – and ideal for live shows with multiple bands and short changeovers. And since they’re on the back of the mic, these switches are still accessible even if the V KICK is placed inside a kick drum.
The most compact kick drum mic on the market.
The V KICK’s 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.
Unique, patented integrated capsule suspension
The V KICK’s advanced internal capsule suspension efficiently decouples the capsule from mechanical vibration, isolating it from shocks & jolts and eliminating the need for an external shock mount.
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. 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.
All-metal housing & spring steel grille with gold XLR connector
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 hold up under on-stage stress 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 red internal windscreen efficiently reduces unwanted popping, plosives and wind noise – and in case you prefer a more visually subtle black windscreen, we have also included one as a standard accessory.
Knurled nut for other mounting accessories
Some popular drum mic mounting systems (such as the LP®Mic Claw) include a knurled nut to secure the mic in position. However, these third-party nuts may partially block the XLR connector on the V KICK due to its extremely space-efficient design – so we have included a knurled nut with a smaller outer diameter to solve this problem for you.
With the V KICK, you can always make the right choice with just a single microphone.
