Audix News


Audix USA was founded in California in 1984, initially as the US distributor for the Japanese electronics manufacturing company of the same name. The company founders, Cliff Castle and Fred Bigeh, later acquired the Audix name and began manufacturing original microphone designs in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The company was moved to Wilsonville, Oregon in 1991 where the company built its own R&D and manufacturing facility and a live soundstage for testing microphones in an authentic environment.

The company’s D-series drum mics are produced in Oregon; other mics in the Audix product line are produced overseas.


The D series was developed as a coherent series [of] application-specific microphones for a wide variety of instruments. [They] were initially designed to compete with the Sennheiser 421, a great mic but expensive and awkward to use, especially on drums.
