Why do I need a low-frequency microphone?
The way we listen to music has really changed over the past years. Headphones have been designed and marketed to reproducing lower frequencies. Venues for live music has started adding ultra low subs that output to 18 Hz . In 2018 the first 108 key Grand piano was made with the lowest note of C0 which is 16 Hz.
The truth is, people want to experience more from music and adding deeper frequencies creates that experience. The Phat Bottom can provide those deep frequencies from your Kick drum and create the experience your craving.
What is the difference?
Every mic from each manufacturer will sound different and distinct. The Phat Bottom's tone is full, round, deep, and impactful. It responds very well to each kick transient. Adding the perfect amount of low-end to create the prefect audio balance.
From the prototype stage we found that the Phat Bottom also stands tall as a solo mic on kick drums. If your kick drum is ported or not don't worry! You can't go wrong with the Phat Bottom!
Why did we use wood for the micrphone body?
For the microphone to work properly. The mic needs a large diaphragm. With a large diaphragm you need a big mic body. If you have a big mic body we believe it needs to look amazing, elegant and made with craftsman quality.
Wood is the BEST choice! We want you to be proud of what you put in front of your kick. You deserve to have a great looking mic to compliment your killer drum kit.
Does the wood body make a difference In tone?
Wood is resonant and that’s why it is great for acoustic instruments. We believe the wood body has a role in the amazing tone that is captured.
Does it need another microphone to work?
No, it might be the only mic that you need in small venues. Don't get the wrong impression its not a bully. It plays fair in a dual mic kick drum configuration.. Using two mics helps the microphones to focus on the dominant tones wanted from kick drums. The attack of the batter head captured from mic placed inside a port and the Phat Bottom placed on the resonant head, placed more to the edge.
