    Electro-Voice ND868 Microphone Product Description

    The Electro-Voice ND868 is a cardioid dynamic mic with only one purpose in life: to make your kick drum sound incredible. No, the ND868 isn't what you'd call versatile. In fact, this is one of the most single-minded mics you'll ever meet. And that's why it sounds so great. If you want the bass drum to penetrate the crowd, if you want full, air-pushin' KICK from a mic that won't distort no matter what kind of John Bonham is behind the skins, this is it!

    Perfect for live or studio settings, the ND868 boasts the kind of frequency response you have to "tune" other mics for in a bass drum application. In other words, this mic is plug and play! Its low-sensitivity design keeps it from distorting in the high-sound-pressure bass drum environment. Its humbucking coil effectively cancels hum interference from lighting and other power sources. Its cardioid design picks up only the sound in front of it. In other words, no unwanted frequencies, distortion, hum, or outside noise allowed. The EV ND868 gives you nothing but kick.
