The KickTone® by Morton Microphone Systems is a breakthrough in the design of microphones dedicated to very low frequencies – those naturally produced in the resonant chamber of a bass drum. Other bass drum mics are available with similar design goals, but they suffer from large size, heavy weight making them unstable, high cost, and worst of all, low frequency response that fails to live up to its promise. Top of the line custom drums, often built with costly exotic woods chosen for their unique tone, deserve better. They require a microphone capable of reproducing that rich tone with full, extended bass fidelity.

The KickTone® is that mic. The KickTone is different. Its patented technology incorporates a dynamic design whose heart is a specially manufactured hemp diaphragm that 
is both stiff and extremely light weight. This diaphragm offers excellent damping characteristics and durability. The magnet is made of neodymium, a rare earth metal capable of the highest possible magnetic field per unit weight. This allows it to be housed in a compact 6.5” (16.5 cm) diameter, 4.5” (11.4 cm) depth package weighing only 1.3 lbs (.59 kg). At this size, it can be mounted over the cutout hole in a bass drum’s resonant head, while specially designed vents in the housing allow the free flow of air. Easy mounting is achieved with a proprietary slide bracket that mates with an adhesive-backed Rez Ring adaptor that is easily installed over the cutout hole.

The KickTone mic even works on a drum with the Kickport® toning device.  The KickTone attaches easily; its slide bracket is made to fit the Kickport® outer flange, providing both secure mounting and also ideal positioning to take advantage of the Kickport’s® tonal enhancement.

In short, The KickTone 
is 
the 
perfect
 microphone
 to 
use 
in 
any 
situation
 requiring
 the 
reproduction 
of
 sub
 and
 low 
end 
frequencies, 
whether 
you 
are 
recording
 in 
the 
studio, 
performing
 live
 at 
a 
venue 
or 
even 
rehearsing 
your 
set 
list. 
Why 
not
 hear 
what 
your 
bass 
drum
 has 
to
 offer!?!
