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.
