WHAT IS THE USE OF SUB KICK IN DRUMS


ANSWER

Hi, Raimon--

The Yamaha Subkick is a sub-frequency (below 100Hz) capture device designed for use with kick drums and floor toms as an alternative or supplement to a traditional microphone.

When used alone or in combination with a standard kick drum microphone, the Subkick will capture the full range of frequencies coming from the drum without EQ, compression, or any other signal processing.

Yamaha's Description:

"The Subkick features a 10-in woofer (frequency response 20Hz – 8kHz) which is shock mounted inside a 7-ply Maple shell and covered with 10-in. black mesh heads. The drum shell focuses sound waves in a strong, directional pattern through the speaker. The Mesh heads, although sonically invisible to those frequencies, add a small amount of sustain to the sound. In combination with the resonance of the drum shell, the speaker produces an incredible sub-frequency sound and without the phasing problems often associated with low end reproduction."
