Yamaha Subkick – “What is that thing?”
A lot of our clients are curious about the Subkick and wonder what it does, why we use it, and what exactly is it. The Yamaha Subkick is a reverse wired speaker mounted into a drum shell that functions as a microphone, and records very low frequencies that normal mics can’t. We (and many others in the industry) like to use it on the kick drum to capture the deep bass tones. We recommend to also record with a standard kick drum mic, and blend the signals for a full, powerful sound!
