Cardioid Pencil Condenser Microphone

The DM-1S is a small pencil condenser designed specifically for snare drum. It is a companion mic to the DM-1T tom microphone, from which it differs only in voicing.

Both mics are part of Sontronics application-specific microphone series, which also includes the DM-1B and the DM-1B kick-drum mic.

The DM-1T and DM-1S are physically identical. They are compact (length approximately 10cm) to facilitate placement above toms and snare without being in the way of cymbals.

The DM-1T tom mic and DM-1S snare mic are both end-address, with a 24mm true condenser capsule. Both produce a Cardioid pickup pattern.

DM-1T with Rim ClampThese mics include a rim clamp for drum mounting, and an aluminum flight case for storage and transport.

The mic was released in 2011.
