Sontronics DM-1S and DM-1T condenser microphones for snare drum and tom tom

SONTRONICS DM-1S condenser mic for snare
and SONTRONICS DM-1T condenser mic for tom tom
Representing three years of research, design and development alongside professional drummers and producers, the Sontronics DM-1S and DM-1T have been specifically created to capture all the characteristics of your snare and tom tom respectively.

Together with our DM-1B condenser mic for kick drum, the DM-1S and DM-1T give you everything you need to get exceptional results from your drumkit or individual drums, both live and in the studio.

"We were using the DM-1S and another mic (that
costs ten times more) and we had to keep checking
the patching because we thought the DM-1S was the thousand-pound mic. It is just incredible!"

MARK RANKIN, Producer (Florence + The Machine, Plan B, Friendly Fries)

The DM-1S and DM-1T are small-diaphragm condenser mics, each with a -10dB attenuation pad and each capable of capturing up to an impressive 135db SPL.

They are designed to capture all the classic characteristics of your drum - the snap, crack and rattle of your snare and the slap, boom and resonance of your tom tom. The two microphones have slightly different frequency response and capture to get exceptional results, both live and in the studio..

"I'm so impressed by the sound of these mics for all my studio and live performances in all genres (rock, jazz, world music), I rely on these mics. Just amazing."
MARITO MARQUES, Drummer/Producer

Both mics are supplied with a mic clip to allow you to quickly get set up and position your mic wherever you need it, either on a mic stand or an additional rim mount.

The DM-1S is ideal for kit snare and orchestral snare drum, but users have told us that they also give incredible results on cajón, djembe and doumbek. Similarly, while DM-1T is designed for rack and floor toms, it also gives a brilliant sound on your bongos, djembe, tabla and congas.

Like all our microphones, our DM-1S and DM-1T are covered by our unique Sontronics LIFETIME WARRANTY.

The DM-1S and DM-1T are now available along with our DM-1B microphone for kick drum in two multi-mic sets: our new DrumPack and DrumPack Plus. Click the link to find out more!
