Find out what great live sound engineers and top producers have known since 2007: The Avantone Mondo kick drum mic delivers focused voicing that can punch through the busiest mix. Now in its 2nd Generation, extensive R&D has helped create what we believe is the essential kick drum and low frequency instrument mic, surpassing any Dynamic/Cardioid mic of its kind.
The Avantone MONDO’s sonic signature is so well defined, it’ll reach up from the low end and tear the roof off. The Mondo’s bold, aggressive, fast response is ready to go when you are. Little if any EQ is needed to dial in that clear punch that everyone desperately wants. Avoid auditory fatigue, getting the sound “just right” in record time.
Like all Avantone Drum mics, the Mondo’s sound signature and brick house construction, make it equally valuable on the road. Only dye cast housings, brass, steel, and brushed Aluminum parts are utilized. No cheap plastic parts that lead to failure are ever used. Spot on Kick drum sound reproduction, that’s built like a tank: The Avantone Mondo is the go-to Pro-Studio kick drum mic, that’s built World tour tough.
Every Avantone drum mic uses a pair of precision machined inserts that allow a positive “lock” with its shock mount. This simple but important feature keeps the mic firmly positioned on the sweet spot, regardless of how hard the drum is hit. A deep Cabernet red finish, Gloss black grill assembly and polished nickel trim provides an aesthetically impressive presentation in any studio.
