Audix Celebrates 30 Years of Excellence with Special Edition D6 Microphone
Wilsonville, Oregon, October 2014- Audix Corporation has unveiled a special limited edition D6 microphone to mark the company's 30 year anniversary. The company kicked off their anniversary year with the release of limited-run D6 coffee mugs, an instant cult classic among engineers and musicians alike.
"This has been a big and very exciting year for us," says Audix co-founder and Vice President of Sales, Cliff Castle. "Releasing this special edition D6 is significant not only to commemorate 30 years, but also because this versatile mic has become such a staple in the industry."
The special edition D6 microphone features a five-layer, hand-dipped anodizing process, giving the mic a unique and festive finish. Because of this intricate creative process, no two mics are alike. The limited edition mics are numbered and serialized, and only 750 have been produced. The microphones are available through Audix authorized dealers and distributors worldwide.
The D6 was first introduced to the music industry in 2005 and became the anchor for the D Series of mics as well as for Audix's drum packs, such as the DP7 and Studio Elite 8. Audix combined VLM capsule technology, transformerless design, and precision machined aluminum housings to achieve new performance standards in live sound and recording. As a result, the D Series broadened the category of dynamic instrument microphones, creating new possibilities for drum and percussion applications.
Today, the D6 is considered one of the most influential kick drum mics ever made, shifting the paradigm for kick drum microphones. The mic is widely acclaimed by performers and live sound engineers for its unparalleled ability to capture both fat low end and crisp highs, true to tone.
The D6 is used for stage, studio and broadcast applications. Designed with a cardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control, the D6 is equipped with a VLM™ diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction.
Lightweight, compact and easy to position, the D6 is an excellent choice for miking instruments requiring extended low frequency reproduction such as kick drums, large toms and bass cabinets. The D6s transformer less design, low impedance and balanced output allow for interference-free performance.
Designed, assembled, and tested by Audix in the USA.
