Cardioid Dynamic Microphone
The Electro-Voice N/D868 is large diaphragm dynamic microphone with a frequency response tailored for the “perfect kick drum sound”.
- Large diaphram N/DYM element is specifically designed to mic kick drums
- Carefully engineered low frequency response gives great sound right out of the box
- Also ideal for floor tom, bass cabinet, and guitar cabinet
If I had to pick between the [N/D868 and Audix D4], I’d give the edge to the N/D868, purely on the perfection of its tight, round (almost compressed-sounding) low end. The N/D868 is clearly a kick drum-only mic.
All things considered, the N/D868 was the most consistently pleasing performer of the seven mics we tested, and the one that most of the judges preferred most of the time.
The Electro-Voice N/D868 is also known as: ND868.
The mic was released in 1998.
