The AKG D112 can be used in either a live or studio setting. It is commonly utilized for the kick drum, but I have had much success in using it to mic my bass cabinet to run either into the PA system or for recording. This a uni-directional microphone that can be placed directly in front of the impact point on the bass drum without be overdriven. The familiar egg shaped design can be recognized almost instantly as a vital component to any live or studio sound artillery.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using the D112 for around three years. It is very durable, and never breaks up when faced with a strong bass drum or bass guitar signal. That is what I like most about the microphone - what more could one ask? It replicates sound extremely well, with clarity and punch. I have not used any of the comparable microphones that are on the market, because the D112 is known to be the industry standard. Given the durability of the product, and the excellent results that it produces, I believe it to be a great value for anyone serious about replication of bass drum or guitar tones for live or studio purposes. If mine were stolen or lost, you can be sure that I would be pulling together my resources to purchase a new one. As a steadily working musician, I could not begin to count the number of D112's that I have seen on stage or in the studio over the years. The fact that its use is so widespread amongst working musicians and studio owners speaks volumes about the product. Additionally, AKG is one of the most respected names in the industry, and has been producing fantastic microphones for at least 50 years. Obviously, I would have no problem in recommending this microphone to anyone, and also have no problem in giving it a perfect score on this review.
