Clean and Versatile
Michal B. 19.07.2020
I bought this to use for my kick drum as a replacement for a D6 that died on me a short while ago (overloaded due to being placed at the port hole of the kick drum). I found the excessive brightness of a D6 a massive pain when it came to mixing it on a recording. The D112 MKII, on the other hand, is perfect. The presence boost around 2-5 kHz works very nicely with the low boost in the 100 Hz region to add clarity and punch.

Pros:
Clear and punchy, yet balanced, and natural sounding.
Sturdy, allegedly not susceptible to overloading.
Cons:
The front part of the clip can get in the way of placing it inside a port hole of the kick drum.

Works great for jazz and funk bands

The classic microphone for the centre drum. I use it mainly in the studio, sometimes at gigs. Works great for jazz and funk bands. Works well with the central drum, even when there is no hole in the membrane. It sounds good with floor tom too, I use it this way when I want to achieve a deep floor tom sound.

Amazing performance !

I have been using this microphone for almost 2 years. This is my go to choice for bass drum microphone. Nice low end , and a well defined beater click. I rarely EQ the kick drum when i used the AKG D112.
I highly recommend this microphone!!

Why did I wait

I bought this as an upgrade for our rehearshal room drumkit. I have used some OK kick drum mic from a budget drum mick pack. It was not bad at all, but not great either. I have also used a Golden Age Project D2 with OK results. But when I put this on, it was an immediately improvment in clarity in the sound. punchy but yet defined. For this price it is a good Kick drum mic and it has been used both in studios and live for decades.
