The SKRM-100 Subkick is a low-frequency capture device that picks up the low frequencies (100Hz-2000Hz) that a normal microphone can't. When used in conjunction with a normal internal microphone (for the attack), your kick drum has a jaw-dropping bottom end like you've never heard before.
6.5" Speaker/Diaphragm : Yamaha took a 6.5" speaker and shock-mounted it into a 10" drum shell and reverse-wired it to an XLR jack to convert the speaker diaphragm into a microphone diaphragm. This allows Subkick to pick up the low-end that a normal microphone can't.
10" x 5" Birch/Mahogany Shell : Mounting the speaker into the shell focuses the sound to direct the signal into the diaphragm. Using our shell makes the Subkick as easy to use on the road as it is in the studio and it looks great with any drum kit.
Complete with a specially designed stand : The Subkick has Yamaha's tom-mounting bracket mounted directly to the shell. This mounts to a CL-940 ball clamp that slides into the base of a double braced 800 series snare stand.
Multiple Applications : The flexibility of the stand allows you to use the SKRM-100 for a variety of applications in live or studio situations. It can be used in conjunction with an internal microphone on bass drums and floor toms, djembe, bass guitar cabinets or even pianos.
