The PR 48 kick drum microphone starts with our 1.5" large diaphragm dynamic element sealed in a vulcanized shock mount and fed with a specially designed low pass filter that creates a +10 dB rise from 50 to 100 Hz. - right where the kick drum resonates. We built a + 4dB rise from 3.5 to 5 K to pick up the beater and drop off drastically after 8.5 K to eliminate any unwanted internal sounds. The total frequency response is 30Hz - 8.5kHz. Its rear rejection is -40dB @ 180ﾰ off axis. It can handle +148dB SPL.
The PR 48 metal housing was designed with a slanted entrance for the XLR at the suggestion of several drum techs so the cable assembly is easier to connect. The microphone provides a 600 ohm balanced output and is finished in flat black emron with red grills.
