Universal Audio SD-5 Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone Overview

Universal Audio’s SD-5 is a supercardioid dynamic microphone for kick drums and bass amps featuring Hemisphere mic modelling technology, high SPL tolerance, and included accessories.

Get thunderous kick drum and bass tones

Easily capture all the punch and heft of your kick drums, bass amps, and anything else where extended low-end is required. A classic dynamic mic with a supercardioid polar pattern, high SPL handling, and best-in-class Hemisphere mic modelling — SD-5 gives you pro sound, no matter where you record.

SD Hemisphere Microphones - Just The Tones

SD-5 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, Audix, and AKG.*

A Modelling Mic That Works for You

SD-5 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-5 and use the plug-in to quickly find that “sweet spot” for your kick drum or bass amp.

Easily Capture Your Best Bass Sounds

Universal Audio fine-tuned the supercardioid polar pattern on SD-5 for use on stage or in the studio. And with its ultra-high SPL capability and exceptional isolation, you’ll capture all the thump, tone, and transients in your instrument without bleed from other sources.

Add a Pro Mic with Vintage Style

With all-metal construction, retro styling, and hand-selected capsules, SD-5 gives you a trusted companion to reliably capture valuable low-end frequencies for decades of solid performance.
