Universal Audio SD-3 Dynamic Tom/ Snare Instrument Microphone Overview

Universal Audio’s SD-3 is a compact cardioid dynamic microphone for drum and instrument recording featuring Hemisphere mic modelling technology, high SPL tolerance, and included accessories.

Compact dynamic microphone for drums, percussion, and instruments

Easily capture snare and tom drums, loud guitar cabs, brass, and more with SD-3 — a classic dynamic mic with high SPL handling, cardioid polar pattern, and best-in-class Hemisphere mic modelling giving you pro sound in any environment.

SD Hemisphere Microphones - Just The Tones

SD-3 is powered by the same mic modelling technology found in Universal Audio’s award-winning UA Sphere microphones. With the included Hemisphere Mic Collection, it’s the only dynamic modelling mic that gives you the authentic sound of famous dynamics from Shure, Sennheiser, and AKG.*

A Modelling Mic That Works for You

SD-3 and the included Hemisphere Mic Collection plug-in work with or without UA hardware, and go way beyond subtle EQ curves to give you precise control over filter, proximity, and axis — an industry first. Just set up SD-3 and use the plug-in to find that “sweet spot” for a guitar cab, or tame harsh frequencies on a snare or tom drum.

Easily Capture Your Best Sounds

Universal Audio fine-tuned the cardioid polar pattern on SD-3 for a wide range of environments. Whether it's your bedroom, project, or pro studio — or even the stage — SD-3’s ultra-high SPL tolerance and exceptional isolation give you iconic "sit-in-the-mix" sounds heard on countless hits. Plus, its compact size lets you zone in for perfect mic placement in tight spaces.

Add a Pro Mic with Vintage Style

With all-metal construction, retro fit and finish, and hand-selected capsules, the SD-3 stands apart from other "workhorse dynamics" — giving you a trusted partner, perfect for capturing nearly any source.
